If you got stopped by the spanish Police while driving

Once the Police have decided they want to impound you, they may follow you to your house, or take the car to a Police depot. The impoundment of your vehicle means that you have to start the registration process immediately by payment of the registration tax (now called emissions tax or matriculación tax).

Other taxes will have to be paid for non-European vehicles. And the registration has to be finished within two months. The vehicle has to be collected from the depot with certain documentation that proves the start of the process. Please see information below regarding the registration process or contact us for advice on your personal situation.

New Certificate of Registry as European Union Citizen in Spain (NIE/Residencia)

The Spanish National Police informed that the Residencia format has been reduced, replacing the current A4 document for a standard laminate card, being the same document but with a tenfold reduction in size, much more handy now.

However, this new NIE number does not include a photo of the resident, so it must always be shown together with the passport or driving license with photo.

Spanish driving license is the only official Spanish document that a foreigner from the European Union will be allowed to have and that will be valid for identification purposes as it includes the NIE or Residencia number.

Starting a new life in Spain

Dear friends:

Thousands of foreigners now live permanently in southern Spain, making it one of the world’s favourite emigratory destinations. But… the bureaucracy in Spain is still very strong and the Spanish love their paperwork 🙂 The more you have, the happier they will be!

Relocation does not just include packing items together with family in the car and arriving in Spain. You have to remember that you are moving your whole life, so you have to plan for it properly and make sure you know what you are arriving to and what is required both in your home country and in Spain. So, you have to plan your move well!

People moving to Spain may be helped by reading the Me Express tips and advice. Here you will find news, advice, suggestions and relocating and business tips and tricks! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions: info@meexpress.net.
