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.

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!
