Re: T.I.E

Thanks Gerry. I'll see how you get on first! Do you know what size photo as we have various ones taken for our recent driving licences, although I am smiling in mine so not sure if I can use that.

Re: T.I.E

I meant getting the appointment at the police station in Torre del Mar. (The link seems to be to the payment form which is also very useful.)

Re: Coronavirus

I'm sure I saw an article int he paper yesterday about someone making a fortune producing masks with company logos on them. For our nightly walk in the campo I won't be wearing a mask I'm afraid, we never see another person on foot.

Re: T.I.E

It seems that anyone applying for residency from now on will be getting the TIE but will have to get extra paperwork from the immigration office first

Re: Coronavirus

I agree with your comments Katy. The biased news was always on about the incompetence of the Uk government in not providing PPE for care homes, but they are private companies and taking an awful lot of money per week for each client. My FIL recently had to have some respite care in a private nursing...

Re: T.I.E

At least I've found the form for you! Not sure what card we already have, on the second page, are we RESIDENCIA PERMANENTE CON TARJETA DE FAMILIAR DE NACIONAL DE REINO UNIDO or OTHER? I can't see anywhere how much you have to pay either. The form you pay on seems to be a general one that you have to...

Re: T.I.E

So, who is going to be first on here to apply for a TIE from the Torre del Mar police station? Whoever it is, will they do a write up on exactly how to do it and what paperwork etc. is needed? :think: Cheers Gerry Oh Gerry, I thought you may do it first and tell us :lol: Like you I would like to ha...

Re: White deposit on pool water

Yes that's what I tried SL but it's so fine it went through the filter and back into the pool. It also sucked in air when the little whirlpool formed. It's settling on the bottom now like white sand, it's not looking good. The only other thing is to set up the submersible pump and try to suck it off...

Re: T.I.E

Presumably it's because it has your photo on it that it lasts 10 years, like a passport? And renewing after that is like renewing a passport or driving licence, just a formality? We have permanent residence and would like a TIE as it's better for ID purposes, but I don't want any problems after 10 y...

Re: Malaga Airport Arrivals from UK

When our neighbours arrived last Saturday from Germany they said there weren't any delays. Ryanair had sent them the form in advance to complete so they were through arrivals quickly without any problems.

Just when it looked safe to go out again...... A new flu virus with pandemic potential has been found in China. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53218704 Sobering thought that meat eating is behind much of our current troubles. China developed, understandably, a taste for meat especially pork. The...

Re: Telefonica Land Lines

When you say remote locations Beach do you mean isolated houses in the campo, or remote hamlets? I know someone who said that fibre is being installed in their tiny hamlet, but there are areas of campo around here that have a few very ancient lines that I could imagine them saying are not worthwhile...

Our German neighbours arrived here without any delays or problems at the weekend. They said the airport was extremely quiet. Ryanair had sent them the health forms in advance to complete, so when they got to Malaga they were through the health checks quickly, whilst others were standing around still...

Re: White deposit on pool water

Extend the inlet for the filter so that it sits just below the surface. With the pump running it should only take a few minutes to 'suck' all surface cal? It's not being able to pump directly to waste that now is a problem it seems. I did originally have a go at just trying to hoover it off the sur...

Re: White deposit on pool water

I use the sticks you dip in as the liquids used to go off between seasons. I'll have another look but as I say, I've never had anything as bad as this over the years.

Just done a test. Everything looks in the 'OK' range although alkalinity was a bit high.

Re: White deposit on pool water

The PH was correct when I tested it when I first filled it, and that's when the cal appeared. I'll do it again although this pool strangely needs little adjusting. We've had a little of this before that did just go into suspension in the end, but this year it is awful. The water deposito almost ran ...

This is the UK account as it was a UK to Malaga flight and I paid in pounds ..... I guess it may be the same though.

Re: Easyjet

Thanks northandsouth. I've just gone through the claim process again for the earliest cancellation and I'll see what happens this time. It does say they'll try within 28 days to make the refund, so all of Easyjet's claims are 28 days+ now. It does say not to contact them to chase it up before 90 da...

Re: Coronavirus

Vueling have their forms to download on their website. They also mention that apart from Priority boarders, hand luggage cases must be checked in (for free) although you can still take a smaller bag on board that fits under the seat. Whether that will change in time I don't know. Our first booked fl...
