Recommendations & Requests


Recommendation, Jeweller: Some weeks ago I asked if anyone could suggest a manufacturing jeweller and received a couple of replies for jewellers in the Nerja area. I have since found a jeweller in the Caleta de Velez area which is much more convenient for me. He has reset a couple of diamond rings for me, transforming them from quite old fashioned settings to exceptionally nice pieces which I’m very happy to wear. The workmanship was excellent, the prices were very fair and he is very honest. I can really recommend him to the people who asked me to let them know if I found anyone. His phone number is 652531799. Jan, Caleta de Velez


Exchanging green resident card for TIE: Here is more information about exchanging your green paper residents card, although all official sources say is not obligatory.
The gov.uk link below gives all the information as to how to apply if you wish, plus links to the online police station appointment system.
UK nationals who registered before 6 July 2020If you registered for residency before 6 July 2020 and have a green paper residence certificate, you do not need to take action. Your green certificate (A4 or credit card-sized) will remain valid proof of your residence and of your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement after 31 December 2020.You may exchange it for the new TIE if you want to. The Spanish government advises the TIE is more durable and may simplify some administrative processes. If you want to exchange your green paper certificate for the TIE there is no deadline for doing so. The process will not change from 1 January 2021.
It is not mandatory to apply for the new residence document, but it is important to remember that you must have a registration certificate (or family card of a Union citizen, in the case of family members) that documents your situation.
I did exchange mine but the appointments to apply and then collect it were very hard to get at Velez. I started the procedure in mid July, waiting 6 weeks for the initial appointment and finally picking the card up in early October. Currently, friends who have been trying to get appointments have found there are none available at Velez police station.
Barbara, Torrox, wickseyb at hotmail dot com


TIE Card: I read with interest Pamelas’ letter on Digame this morning stating that, according to a functionary in Malaga, it is obligatory to obtain a TIE card. This is not the case if they are already the holder of a Permanent Residency card or A4 Green certificate, only for new applicants.
I am not sure whether you publish third party links, but this subject is covered extensively on the CAB website
It is also covered on the UK government website:
I feel that the information given in good faith by Pamela needs to be corrected, as many people may be panicked into taking action that is unnecessary at this time.
Thanks and best wishes,
Steve ( Caleta de Velez )


TIE- Advice and Warning: Jacky in Nerja’s foreigners office has produced a step-by-step guide to apply for the TIE – which all residents from the UK will need to do following Brexit. I am happy to email this pdf document to you or you can download on the Nerja web page.
I have noticed an increasing number of adverts for people offering to do this for you – they CAN’T! You have to present in person so they can take your finger prints, both to apply for the card and again to collect it. They will NOT let anyone in to act as a translator for you either. I know this from personal experience both at Malaga and Velez Malaga.
Dawn, Nerja (towellfamily at Hotmail . com)


TIE Card: Contrary to Pamela’s post today, I was listening to Myra from the Citizens Advice Bureau on Talk Radio this lunch time and she clearly stated that it is NOT obligatory to change to a TIE card, it is OPTIONAL. A lady rang in and asked if a friend of hers, who is ninety and has lived here forty years needed to change her green Residencia to a TIE card, the answer was no. Often Myra knows things that the Police and the British Consul do not, in fact on the subject of Brexit she had to correct the Consul at one of his presentations. Different Police stations interpret these rules differently. They are not always fully informed. For the truth always go to Citizens Advice Bureau as advised by Nathan in Digamextra. Confusing I know, its no wonder that everybody has a different tale to tell and rumours abound. Carole Hart, El Morche, carolemhartATyahooD0Tcom


TIE: In case the post by Pamela yesterday should provoke panic, it should be pointed out that according to several reputable sources, we have until at least summer next year to exchange our permanent green card/A4 residence papers for the new TIE. I agree that the process is straightforward; the difficulty is getting an appointment at Torre del Mar police station! I have been trying since August, and despite being told that they would be available online on about the 1st and 15th of month, this does not seem to be the case for private individuals. Personally I am not happy about trekking into Málaga giving the Covid situation, nor do I see why I should have to pay a gestor 60+€ to get me an appointment in Torre del Mar. One can only assume that from January 1st, when these TIE’s were originally going to start to be issued, then appointments will be available at Torre del Mar as they are in every other part of Málaga province including Antequera, Marbella, Fuengirola, Ronda etc etc. Wendy, Sedella
