No doubt, who plan on living in Gran Canaria for more than 183 days a year needs to have the paperwork for more reasons. For example, to get the correct identification numbers, such as N.I.E. and Social Security number
Even if you want to settle down first, even if you are not thinking to become a resident immediately, it is important to know that if you have any financial affairs in Spain, an N.I.E. (tax identification number) is a must.
But if you did not have a reason to apply for it before, the Office for Foreigners will issue this number to you once you obtain a residency and it will be your permanent identification number in this country.
You are probably well informed that to obtain an N.I.E. or certificate of residency down here, one must wake up early, go to the police station (Policia Nacional) and wait in line at least an hour only to get a waiting number. No previous appointment online. It is only possible for the Office for Foreigners in Las Palmas.
If you really don’t feel like getting up before sunrise. We will guide you through the process. You’ll only have to turn up to be present when submitting your documents. And then, have a cup of coffee, do some shopping, take a walk in the sun. In about an hour you can pick up your N.I.E. document or your residency certificate at our office. As easy as that.
You don’t need to bother filling in the application and the fee forms. Pay an extra visit to the police to get the list of required documents.
We know the paperwork procedures not only by the police. But also at the Municipal Register of Inhabitants in your Town Hall, or how to obtain a Spanish Social Security number, a medical card…
