Re: Getting a Spanish Passport

on reflection Im going to do the TIE and then re evaluate the Spanish passport situation. I dont want to be in a position where i have LESS freedom and have to COMPLY EVEN MORE just being a Spanish national. Without stereotyping there is a reason why nearly all autonomous regions do not like the con...

Re: TDSystems tv

Personally I use android boxes instead of smart tv because its easy to upgrade a box rather than a tv. I have enough is...

Re: Samsung Smart TV Model no UE32H4500AM

HI David I dont know what a Dune box is but ive dont have Smart TVs i use android tv boxes and your TV supplier should tell you which "APP" to use. I stand to be corrected, but as far as Im aware HTML5 and adobe Flash programs are computer/laptop programs and are used in this case i guessi...

Re: Getting a Spanish Passport

Ive been here 16 years i cant believe that it cost so much, i been to the Policia national and they did not mention an exam not the €600 costs. The DNI is less than €20 and you can travel around europe with it and probably still get into the UK. Its as good as a passport for Europe and even morocco....

Hi, Now us Brits are out of the EU and most of us never want or cant leave Spain, it makes a lot of sense to get a Spanish Passport and so the residencia, TIE, NIE thing wont be an issue and we can vote in the National and Andalucian elections. Has anyone actually done its recently, I want to keep m...

Re: Pen Knife / Folding Blade

Thanks for the info Guys, I know Toledo is famous for its swords when Spain had an empire, but i would have never though a 11 inch blade would be legal. I guess with reflection they would not be selling them in Lidls if it was illegal, its not like you would keep it at home as you would use a proper...

I dont...

1.30am Curfew tonight and NYE

Hi Everyone, It may be a silly question but I thought I knew the obvious answer until a restaurant owner said something, He announced that he will be closing and everyone must leave tonight at 1.30am, however I thought it was a case that you had to be HOME at 1.30am. As i live inland this makes a lo...

Re: Ive been cut off and its not my fault.

I would change companies even if Jazztel offer to give you a phone line and internet. Once Jazztel have your details they could just take your wifes debt from your account.
