Hello everybody,  I would really appreciate some help!

I arrived in Spain on 15 November 2016 and applied for Temporary Residence on 5 December 2016.  My temporary residence card (the bit of green paper says desde 5 Dic 2016) lasts up to 5 years.  However, I can only apply for Permanent Residence once I have lived here more than 5 years.  5 December 2021 is a Sunday.  If I go on 3 December 2021 then presumably I'm too early to apply for Permanent Residence; HOWEVER if I go on 7 December (with 6 and 8 being national holidays) then my temporary residence card has already expired (which sounds bad!).

Please can somebody tell me - when do people usually apply for Permanent Residence to get around this problem? Is there a bit of leeway in terms of the dates?

Thanks in advance.

You can renew residency within 60 days before its expiration or 90 days after.

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!
