Residencia and TIESpanish DocumentationResidencia and TIE

December 9, 20200

A change in Septem­ber 2020 means when you ob­tain Res­id­en­cia now you will be is­sued with an iden­tity card called a TIE, rather than the pre­vi­ous small green card or cer­ti­fic­ates. There are two new pro­cesses, one for ob­tain­ing your first res­id­en­cia in the form of the TIE, and a fur­ther for people who wish to change their cur­rent doc­u­ment­a­tion to the new TIE cards. What is the TIE?

The TIE is a Tar­jeta de In­den­tific­a­ción de Ex­tran­jero and is the new res­id­ency doc­u­ment for for­eign­ers. The For­eign Of­fice in Alic­ante are the only of­fice in this re­gion now is­su­ing these for the Brit­ish. Whilst we are aware of the re­quire­ments to ob­tain this un­til 31st Decem­ber 2020, as yet there have been no formal an­nounce­ments for what the cri­teria will be after this date.
