Stay & Immigrate in Spain
Spanish law says: Every citizen of a Member State of the European Union has the right to reside in Spain for more than three months. In this case, the Union citizen is obliged to apply for registration in the Central Register of Aliens. (cf. Real Decreto 240/2007) N.I.E. number (identification number for foreigners) In Spain, the NIE is indispensable for the execution of a variety of acts and formalities such as, for example: Buying or selling a home Registration in the population register Registration of a vehicle Payment of taxes of any kind, also for non-residents The NIE can be applied for at the Aliens Department in Spain or at the competent Spanish consulate in the home country. However, the application can only be made in person or with a notarial power of attorney. Stay in Spain If you are staying in Spain for more than three months, or if you wish to take up paid employment or self-employment, you are obliged to register with the municipal administration of your Spanish residence and register with the National Police in the Central Register of EU Citizens. The entry into the central register for EU - foreigners takes place with the foreigners authority. This is necessary: 1) - valid passport or identity card 2) - proof of residence in Spain 3) - proof of health insurance valid in Spain 4) - proof that you can make a living This entry in the Spanish Aliens Register is required for many administrative matters. It merely establishes a right of permanent residence, but not necessarily a tax residence. Tax liability and residence How an individual or corporation is taxed in Spain depends on whether or not they are resident in that country. As a general rule, it is assumed that the person is tax resident if he or she stays in Spain for more than 183 days per year. Furthermore, it is presumed that a taxpayer has his habitual residence in Spain, unless the contrary is proved, if the spouse who is not legally separated and the minor children dependent on him have their habitual residence in Spain in accordance with the above guidelines. A person may have a residence permit or an administrative seat in a state and may not be considered a tax resident of that state. (cf. also DBA de-es) Tax residence is evidenced by a certificate issued by the tax authority of the respective country. These certificates are valid for one year. Health insurance: Persons with statutory health insurance: Anyone who has statutory health insurance in Germany and a European health insurance card is treated here at all times in emergencies.

Pensioners can apply for an unlimited SIP card by presenting the European certificate issued by the respective valid health insurance company. (S 1 - formerly: E 121) This card establishes a transfer of the insured person to the Spanish health authorities for the duration of the insured person's stay in Spain. Privately insured: Private health insurants who are not entitled to statutory health insurance in another country may be admitted to statutory health insurance in Valencia on payment of a monthly contribution, if they so request.
