Residency

Where is the Police Documentation Office in Denia?

Do I need a Residence Card or a Registry Certificate ?

NOTE: May 2013….the "Registry Certificate" is no longer a large sheet (A4) but has been replaced by a "card" approx 10cm x 5cm.
……..
Citizens from OUTSIDE the EUROPEAN UNION still require a “Residence Card” to reside in Spain.

There is no longer a ‘Residence Card’ for EUROPEAN UNION Citizens.

EU Residents coming to live in Spain need a Registry Certificate.

The "Certificado de Registro" (Certificate of Registry … of the European Union) replaces the "Tarjeta de Residencia" (Residence Card) for all European Citizens who reside in Spain …..for all ages whether working or not working, and also if you are retired.
It is obligatory to obtain this new Certificate if you reside in Spain.
On the expiry of an existing "Tarjeta de Residencia" (Residence Card) this Registry Certificate should now be obtained.

A Registry Certificate is normally issued by your nearest National Police Station, however if your local Police Station is in Denia then you need to apply at the new Police Documentation Office.
