The town hall register you on the Empadron, it is not residencia.

For an EU citizen, the residencia registration is in the documentation section of the National Police BUT for Non EU citizens it is in a dept of the Home Office

What is the basis of the residencia? What makes your friend think that the residencia is eligible for renewal?

She has been married to a person with dual British and Irish nationally for two years and has lived with him in Spain for almost two years, with permanent (family) residencia status. The first card has now expired. Before it expired she started the renewal process.

I spoke to a solicitor today, Apparently the EU law regarding resident status for people from outside the EU has changed recently and it is now much more complicated than it was. This applies to new applicants and to renewals.

With this in mind, I am sure that the experience of anyone with recent knowledge, or anyone who makes an application in the future, will be most welcome in the forum.

The new law came into force in Feb 2007.

It seems simpler than it was, not more complicated.

You can read it at http://www.boe.es/boe/dias/2007/02/2...8558-08566.pdf

It is in accordance with the 2004 EU directive.

Thanks Fred, I will wade through the NINE A4 pages of closely typed Spanish text. I hope I can understand it, and the 47 pages in English. I was wondering what I might be doing for the next few days !!!

When we changed the address on our Residencia Certs at Torremolinos Nat police station there were non EU citizens getting their fingerprints etc taken for their Residencia cards.

Yes that's the last leg for them. It is after they have supplied all the paperwork to, in the case of people living in Torremolinos, the immigration office in Malaga and the residencia has been approved.

An advantage they have is that they still get the plastic Residencia Card (with photo and finer print) which is legal ID in Spain, so no need for them to carry their original passport.
