Re: Residencia appointment

Thanks. I followed the 'New' route and completed it this morning. I have the receipt. I wasn't sure which docs they wanted so I attached passport, NIE and green form. Fingers crossed that's all they want.

Re: Residencia appointment

Oh, then perhaps I am looking at the wrong form. I'll go back and have another look. This is the screen I was looking at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aokn2lkdiz3ghc8/Screenshot%20%2832%29.jpg?dl=0 EDIT: That form above is for renewals. For the TIE it looks as as if one must follow 'New Application' ev...

Re: Residencia appointment

Thank you Beachcomber. My green form does not have an expiry date but the "Fecha de caducidad" box is mandatory. Any ideas what should be entered there in that case?

What's the link for the online application form? I have a green form and I've lived here for more than 5 years.

I believe that is also the case for the residence certs issued more than 5 years ago but not changed to permanent isn't it, Sid?

Rusty marks on patio tiles...

We have some rusty marks on some patio tiles left by a cast-iron umbrella base. Is there a way to clean off these marks? The tiles are matt not glossy.

Re: Ryanair - more cancellations

I can't find a list of the cancelled routes, has anyone seen it? I read that they have already emailed the latest affected passengers so all of our flights are OK I suspect.... until the next round!

Re: Ryanair luggage change

What puzzles me is that this system is allegedly to reduce delays by people bringing wheelies onto the plane but the article states that the wheelies will be collected 'at the gate'. That can't be right surely? They must mean on the tarmac otherwise staff would be required to hump all the wheelies t...

We too! Out and back to/from Eindhoven both on affected days! I don't see mention of which airports but I would be surprised if Seville isn't one of them.

Has anyone departed from Seville to UK or other non-Schengen countries very recently? I'd like to know if there are any extra delays there.

Re: Wildfire near Huelva & Doñana national park

We could smell the smoke at midnight last night. Friends couldn't return from their beach houses in Matalascañas until very late because the roads were closed. An environmental disaster. There's an online petition to encourage the junta to replant asap and not to let developers in now that the land ...
