Visa and Visitor's Permit

If you have already been in Spain for a year

You will need to renew your NIE. The period to do so is 60 days before it expires (we recommend you do this as soon as possible within the given time).
To renew it you will have to visit (without an appointment) the Oficina de Extranjería  located at c/ Manuel Luna, 29 from Monday to Friday from ) 9:00 to 14:00. It is very important for you to bring all of the required documentation, since that would make the renewal process easier.

Another way in which you could start the renewal process is presenting the application through the Mercurio Platform (following this link: https://sede.administracionespublicas.gob.es/PresentyacionesTelematicas/iniRenova.html). In order to do so, you need to apply for a digital certificate. This procedure allows you to submit your renewal application by means of teh Ministry's electronic office (sede electrónica). You can access the system 60 days before your NIE expires and up until 90 days after its expiration day.

You must provide the following documents:

  • Original and copy of theEX-00 document.
  • Original and copy of your passport.
  • Copy of expired NIE.
  • Copy of document demonstrating your affiliation to the university. This document can be, for example, your enrollment for the following year.
  • Copy of a document demonstrating that you have been attending classes. This document is new and absolutely required. It can be a certificate of your marks from the last year or a letter from your advisor that verifies you attended classes and that you advanced in your studies.
  • Original and copy of a bank statement from the last six months with a balance of €1200 and, where appropriate, proof of scholarship.
  • Document of empadronamiento (registration of place of residence).
  • Life insurance . It is important that this insurance policy be valid for a year after the date on which you renew your NIE. If not, the NIE can only be renewed for the period for which you are insured.
  • Original and copy of the Tasa nº 790 . You must pay itat any bank. The option you should check is 1.3: “ Extension of authorization of residency for purposes of study, student mobility, non-working internship or voluntary service (card-holder and family members)” (Prórroga de la autorización de estancia por estudios, movilidad de alumnos, prácticas no laborales o servicios de voluntariado (titular principal y sus familiares)).

.
In the Form EX00 where it says “Directed to:” (Dirigido a: ) you should write in “Delegación del Gobierno de la C/Silva 19, Madrid”


IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE PERSON AT THE OFFICE WHERE YOU LEAVE THE DOCUMENTS STAMPS YOUR COPY OF THE EX00 FORM. THIS DOCUMENT DEMONSTRATES THAT YOU ARE IN THE PROCESS OF RENEWING YOUR AUTHORIZATION, AND IS PROOF THAT YOUR RESIDENCY IN SPAIN CONTINUES TO BE LEGAL EVEN THOUGH YOUR CARD ITSELF HAS EXPIRED. MOREOVER, IT MUST BE PRESENTED IF YOU REQUEST AUTHORIZATION TO TRAVEL AND RETURN.

As soon as you receive a notification indicating that you must go register your fingerprint, you have to apply for an appointment through this link:
