Re: Residencia Interviews

Just on the subject of getting an appointment at the Policia Nacional foreigners' office... A couple of months or so ago I needed to change the address on my green NIE card so I tried to get an an appointment via the cita previa website. After I selected Reino Unido as my nationality a message appea...

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

Hi Enrique, On my HP Envy laptop running Windows 10 Pro I also see the 'your device isn't quite ready for it' message. I clicked on the 'learn more' button (not always very fruitful where Microsoft is concerned :wink: ) and it took me to a '1903 status' page* where it states the following: Current s...

Re: IKEA Malaga

When I bought some furniture recently at Ikea Malaga the lady who did the wardrobe design work on the computer told me that there were two options for delivery - either the 'official' Ikea delivery service (49 € to anywhere in Malaga province), or an outfit called HelloVan, who have a spot just outs...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I asked my gestor about this and he thinks there is a box that can be ticked which enables just the nationality of the tenant(s) to be entered. This apparent new requirement potentially affects me too but I won't know for sure what the options are until my declaración de la renta gets finalised for ...

Re: Drinking water at airports

It's good that there are now drinking fountains at some airports again. At Malaga they are not at every toilet but (for example) the facilities at the far end of the 'old' Terminal B pier have one. (I still can't get used to calling what I always called the 'new' terminal the 'old' one). At Gatwick ...

Re: Skype New Version 8.3

I really dislike Skype v8 too, not least because you can no longer keep separate chat windows open with that version.

Re: Residence Registration No Healthcare

As Sid implies, it seems that the implications of the new healthcare coverage arrangements are still filtering through to other areas including 'residencia' requirements. CAB Spain have been collating information on this: https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/faq/new-universal-healthcare-law-july-27-201...

Re: Residencia in Malag

Well yes, that was what I had to do four years ago as a non-pensioner. But the 'rules' may well have changed since then, hence the suggestion to ask at the relevant police station in advance if possible.

Re: Residencia in Malag

Gerry makes a valid point here... Isn't there a National Police station nearer to you than Malaga? The only way of finding out what their current requirements are, they can vary day to day, is to go and ask them. Last year I helped a friend get his 'residencia' and when we went to the main Policia i...

Re: Passporting - what does it all mean re annuities

I'm still in the dark about the verb "passport". I thought it was a noun. What is "to passport"? An American acquaintance of mine once said, "Hey, any noun can be verbed!" :lol: Here's hoping this all gets straightened out before March; although Sid's conclusion does s...

Re: Renta 2017

OK Sid, understood; thanks for clarifying. I'm actually due a rebate in any case, but I'm obviously keen to get this buttoned up ASAP.

Has anyone here entered tax paid in the UK in order to offset it against Spanish tax at some point? I'd be grateful for any thoughts on this.
