Default tarjeta sanitaria europea

Hi!

im a British citizen living in spain.. I’m tavelling to the UK this week and just realised my tarjeta sanitaria europea has Expired. How can I get this renewed in 4days?? And is anything else valid to use as as health insurance when I travel broad if not this. I’m traveling with my 3 year old. I have a British passport but not sure if this will cover me as my Padrón is in Spain now.

thanks

Shouldn't be a problem. When you renew (at least around here) they post you the new card - so no chance in 4 days.

With a digital signature, you can apply online and print off a temporary TSE

Do you have your green (residency) card?

Hi, butting in from the France forum! This happened to me last year. I simply got onto the French Health Service site and downloaded a temporary A4 Certificate to cover that trip. The plastic card arrived later. (Those without internet access would go along to their Agency...)
On another front, if the father isn't travelling with you, check whether you need written permission from him to take your child out of the country.

I travel to UK with my son and have never been asked to show written permission from mother. Where did this come from?

Check out the "Viajes al extranjero" on the government site ¿Qué debo hacer antes de viajar al extranjero?


"Si los menores viajan acompañados, el agente de fronteras puede solicitar documentación que pruebe la patria potestad del/los acompañantes o de los que suscriben la autorización del viaje del menor con otro adulto. Además, si el menor va acompañado sólo por uno de sus progenitores, se puede solicitar también autorización expresa del progenitor ausente o efectuar una investigación más pormenorizada si sospecha que se ha podido privar ilícitamente de la custodia del menor a quien la ejerza."

Basically confirms that if a child travels with only one parent the frontier services can ask for an authorisation from the non-travelling other parent

You've been lucky, and it looks as though Spain (and probably elsewhere) is the same as France. It was originally initiated here to prevent divorced non-French parents from taking their children "home", and is now also used to prevent minors from going to Syria, for example, to join Daesh (unless of course both parents are accompanying them....).
