Re: Getting Residency

revereting to this thread after a while. This question really is "asking for a friend" ! A hypothetical question, if one has a Finnish passport and spends a lot of time, 6/8 months of the year in Spain and rents a property here (usually for cash) how do the authorities know how long he's ...

Re: BANK CHARGES

Non spaniards only have a NIE .Even if you have residencia you dont get a different /seperate number. whether they will want evidence via copy of your residencia or check (if thats possible) your resident status via your NIE is another thing

Re: Sabadell Expansion Account -Introduction of Monthly Charge

Thanks. The blue debit cards have always been free. Will ask when we go in.

We have the experienca account with no fees so maybe thats why theres a charge for the credit card. They get you one way or the other! Card is only free with expansion account which is now gonna have charges!

Re: Changing to Spanish driving licence

Been delays for along time due to brexit. Not sure what your option is unless your gestor can get earlier appointments. Might aswell see what happens with the 31st. Or just make an appointment now for a long way down the road and then the OH will have their new licence (hopefully)by then

Re: Changing to Spanish driving licence

That last paragraph is the norm or was when we did it. Go to traffico with your docs. They then check your right to drive with DVLA.(all the time keeping your U.K licence) then when its checked you go back and hand over your uk licence and you are given a 3 month temp licence until your spanish one ...

Re: Registering with INSS (with S1 form)

Me neither Cant see why it would be any different to a O.A.P one. Its not like its a temporay S1 like when they used to give them out to pre retirement people. They didnt get cards just used to show the paper. Isnt a S.S number different? I got one of those at the SS office for working. Had nothing ...

Thinking of N26 if there are no charges, especially for using debit card. If you...

Lovely. We stayed two nights in carmona in march. Did a day trip to ecija and stopped in osuna on the way back. I was really impressed with ecija. More modern and bigger than carmona but with some gorgeous squares and churches and palaces. In ecija there was a brand new bouitique hostal in the sqaur...
