Just an addendum to this. Flew Madrid to London early this morning, handed over my TIE and passport, and my passport was stamped. I suppose it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things and it was far too early in the morning to question it!

Do the Spanish border officials stamp other 3rd country passports when the owner has a residency card, NLV? (I'm thinking Americans, Canadians etc)

If so, then stamping all UK passports would seem appropriate.

Surely the difference with UK citizens legally resident in the EU including Spain come under the rules agreed under the WA? As we are resident the passport stamp is irrelevant given that its purpose is re schengen rules and time limits on stays, as we live here what's the point? That would also apply for any 3rd country resident if you grant residency why time their stay in country of residence? That doesn't make sense. Also per both spanish and UK governments have said it shouldn't happen.

Hi bobd22,
My post was seeking to clarify whether 3rd countries, previous to 2020, had their passports stamped on entry/exit when they possessed a residency card.... Just trying to gauge whether the border control were (wrongly?) making a special case for UK passport holders.

New UK applicants for the NLV would not come under the WA, should they have their UK passports stamped?

What would happen if someone (as Spanish resident) entered the Schengen area via a French port, travelled into Spain and left via a Spanish port? Their passport would be stamped when they entered the Schengen area but not when they left. This could cause confusion on their next visit the Schengen area.

Personally, I think they're making it up as they go along.

Yes I think they have not really looked at it pre planning. Stamping passports in a country one legally is resident as you say can only add to confusion.

Yes. As mentioned earlier my UK passport wasn't stamped but my wife had her Mexican passport stamped by the same official at the same time. My guess is that they haven't received clear guidance if n77af had thiers stamped, also at Madrid.

I had mine stamped leaving Madrid, but not entering 3 weeks earlier. And again, no stamp on leaving Malaga prior to that. I'm surprised that Madrid, which is the biggest international airport in Spain doesn't seem to have a consistent procedure in place.

As I am one of the few people in my company that has had a vaccine, I've got a fair amount of work trips coming up. I'm heading through Gibraltar on the 7th which will be interesting, as its the first time crossing that border in over a year. It's an incredibly convenient place to fly, as I can be home 30 minutes from stepping off the aircraft, but I have had very bad luck with weather in the past!

The stamp / no stamp is more of a curiosity than anything, as it won't affect those of us legally living in Spain.

It’s going to be havoc when things open up officially. Sounds like no one has a clue

They would show the TIE in France and as it's in the common format it should be recognised by French border control and they shouldn't get a stamp.

That is bit a naïve statement.
What will happen if you leave/enter Schengen through another state, other then Spain, and you have lost/forgotten your TIE?
Those stamps will indicate you have overstayed in Schengen. I hear airport detention beds are quite comfortable.

You may call it naivety, but I call it common sense. Could you imagine the uproar that would be caused if, because of a erroneous passport stamp, they were chucking legal residents into detention centres?

Forgetting the residency card is hard, as in Spain you must always carry government issued ID on your person. A card that fits into my wallet is preferred over carrying my passport everywhere, and in the case of loss abroad, I am certain that procedures are in place to allow you to prove your status.

Even entering through another Schengen state, I’d imagine a quick call to the Spanish authorities to confirm someone’s status is far easier than detaining and deporting someone.

Sounds like there will be some potential head aches these next few months for anyone who has not got a Spanish/European passport when clearing customs.
