I would check that if I were you. Someone else on here said it was a requirement at Malaga.

I find that Gestors sometimes don´t have the right information. In fact although I didn´t use a Gestor, I got talking to one here in Barcelona and it was me explaining to HER the new rules on applying for a TIE here.

I´m not saying your Gestor is wrong....but you never know.

Someone I know (Spanish) has a daughter who is a lawyer and she insists that everybody with a property in Spain should be on their padron.

Needless to say I've told everybody to steer clear of her!

All I can say is that the same gestora (a lady) has already applied for 3 other TIEs of British citizens (for first-time residency) successfully through Malaga.

Next Question..

On the TIE it mentions Article 50 and Article 18.4 which it should do...

However, at the botom of the card on the front it says "Residence Card of a Family Member of a Union Citizen"

Anybody know why?

It ( presumably it is not in English) means you have residency based on your relationship to a family member

My understanding is at the second stage there are a couple of boxes to tick on the form 790 which produce a fee of €12. One of them is for family members of an EU citizen which gives you additional rights of free movement in Schengen. My wife now has her Irish passport so I will look for that box.
It is explained on CAB Spain website and means although I have a UK passport I can join her in the EU queue at the airport to enter Schengen with my TIE and passport not the others queue.

Be careful!!. There appears to be some thing strange happening with this. People are not reading forms properly and ticking wrong boxes

Does anyone see any issues with me doing this?
If I apply for a padron do you get that immediately or is there a waiting period of say a week or two?
Can my solicitor apply for the first part of the TIE assuming they have a digital signature and I just turn up for the face to face appointment?
Is the TIE decision/issued on the spot or later?

Many thanks for your help in advance.

Hello,

Were you able to get your NIE online? I would like to get this sorted before going if possible.

Cheers

You can get your NIE number as PART of the process of getting a TIE. It does not involve another appointment.
They give you a NIE number at the Extranjeria Office, which is your first port of call anyway.

According to a Facebook Group I have been following it is the fault of the Spanish authorities and not which box you ticked. I think someone is taking it up with the British Consulate in Madrid.

I´ll post on here if I hear anything else.

But don´t panic. There are thousands of us with the wrong wording.

I am trying to find the email of the immigration office in Granada to ask them about the documents required for the TIE application as a student. Any chance you know where I can find the email? Only seem to be finding the contact number but no email.

Thanks again

No. I can´t find one...Seems they don´t want anyone to contact them. Even if you phone you´ll probably just get an automated message and not be able to talk with an actual person.
