My OH is about to become a resident as they have decided to move here full time.
They applied for an NIE (non-resident type) on a visit here back in 2003, but have never lived here full time before.

They have just been offered a job and the assesores/gestores that are doing the contract, said their NIE is ‘Out of date’ and it has to be renewed.

I understood that an NIE was for life???
OK, it has the address they were renting for a few weeks back in 2003 and that is out of date (their’s had an address on, oddly mine does not??? But perhaps that is because I applied for mine same time as residencia?)

Does anyone know the rules and requirements?

PS - As add on to this, our daughter came over and got an NIE recently (thankfully all done in just 4 days!)... as she is about to buy a house here.  Does this also mean her NIE will have to be renewed every 3 months!!! (I think the gestor has got their wires crossed.)  :( 

(I cannot see 1,000's of non-resident property owners queing to get their NIE renewed every time they visit!) ;)

                       the NIE does not expire.   When a person  from the EU comes to live in Spain they must register on the EU citizen’s register, in your case at Fuengirola National Police Station,  as an EU citizen. The Cert they get has same number  as the NIE they have always had, or if they did not have one the new number is their NIE and is the number shown on the cert.
A person who wants to make a financial transaction in Spain (buy a property etc) but who is not staying for 3 months or more, needs an NIE.

As far as I know the number would stay the same no doubt but I know they changed to need photos...


Probably best to check with police station...

At my age you've learned everything. The hard part now is remembering it!

                one of the differences between the old Residencia and the new Foreigners Registration Certificate, which for EU citizens has replaced it, is that the new document does not bear a photo. As too, the New Resident’s Cert does not have an expiry date, but if one already has an NIE,  when they apply for the new cert, then that same number will apply to the Resident Cert.
