Hi

I had my wallet stolen with my NIE card in it.  Does anyone know the number for the foreigners office in Cartegena, as I have been told I have to make an appointment there to get a replacement card.

 

Many thanks for any help you can give.

You will probably need to make a crime report (denuncia) re the loss and produce that when you make the application.

 You can give the info regarding the theft on the phone by calling 902 102 112 betweem 8am and 8 pm,  press 2 for English.  You must nominate the National Police Station where you must go, within 48 hours,  to make the  report and sign it   You will be given a Ref No. on the phone to produce when you go to the National Police so they can find it on the system.    They will use the info you provided on the phone to make the report.  

For the replacement document, you need to download the application and payment  forms from the internet just as you did when you made the first application, but of course you will not need to prove income nor medical cover.

I've got an NIE number but never had a card. An estate agent in Tenerife helped me apply at the cop shop there  but I've only ever used the number in Murcia for buying a house and a car. Why do I need an actual card ?

Never had an NIE card, either. We have a residency card (OK, a Certificado de la Ciudadano de la Union por Extranjeros- still easier to say residency) but only an A4 printed NIE certificate.

Molly,    ignore the unhelpful posts.

I assumed you had a Credit Card sized EU Citizen Certificate. That was why made the post that I did , However, if it was an NIE Cert the same  advice applies.

Of course you might have been, although I do not think you are,  a Non EU Citizen in which case you would have had am  Residencia CARD,

I do not think there is such a thing as a NIE card.

Years ago NIE cards were issued to all foreign residents in Spain. It had a passport size photo in it. They were a small maroon card, double sided. They were discontinued when the green A4 residents certificate was introduced.

Micky  

Just to clarity that.   

Until 2nd April 2007, when that process was outlawed by the EU, we were all issued with a RESIDENCIA which was a two sided, credit card size, plastic covered card,  with a photo and a fingerprint:   It was legal ID.

That same card is still issued to Non EU nationals when they obtain residence status.   That is why it can be confusing when people refer to the EU citizen’s green  card as a  ‘Residencia’

 

We were all issuedwthRESIDENCIA

Thanks Johnz for that clarification.

It follows then after Brexit all UK citizens as non EU nationals resident in Spain will need to apply for a new card.

Good point MIcky.

Of course we do not know what will be agreed when Brexit is finalised but I would think there will be some special arrangement to  avoid that.  However, if the UK had not been in the EU all Brits would have a Residencia.

If Brit do need to have Residencia,  the process is more involved than the present requirements for EU Citizen Registration, as now we have a Right to live here.  Non EU citizens have no such right.

I am fortunate as my mother was born in N.Ireland so that made me Irish as far a Dublin is concerned.    I now have dual nationality.  My son (post Brexit vote) obtained Irish nationality on the grounds that his gramdmother was born on the Island of Ireland.  I understand many thousands of people are doing the same, just in case.

You are fortunate John. 

Whatever the outcome it's likely to be reciprocal. So if the UK government insists EU citizens resident there need apply for so called 'settled status' the same will apply in Spain. Past EU agreements and treaties will presumably no longer apply once the UK becomes a third country.

As we know Micky in most countries one could say that if there is a situation which is good for the country, providing income, jobs etc. then common sense would prevail and no problems would be created.

Unfortunately I have live in Spain long enough to know that common sense by the authorities  is about as rare an Rocking Horse Poo.

 Common Sense:        Yesterday I was present at a  comisaria when a police officer was extremely rude to  a couple of Finnish people who came to report a crime, telling that instead of asking if he spoke English (which he does quite well) that as they are in Spain they should speak Spanish.  They have a holiday home here so are a financial benefit to Spain.    And Finland is not leaving the EU !    I mentioned the rudeness to the officer who subsequently took the crime report.  He was exceptionally polite and apologised,
