After a bit of a hiccup with the residencia (two days before we arrived they changed the rules and wanted the Social Services – if that’s the lot that do the health cards – to rubber stamp our S1 application). My husband is a pensioner and I get health care as a dependant.
Mallorca Solutions who are undertaking all the paperwork for us asked the rather nice guy at the Oficina de Extranjeros to mark our forms as recognised so we would not have to travel to Palma again. He kindly did that and therefore after Tamara at Mallorca Solutions went and got the said ‘stamp’ on our S1 forms we were granted our residencia.
I have seen on forums mention of paper ‘residencias’ with expiry dates but Louise scanned our residencias so we could see that they had got them at their office. I was pleased to see that they are in fact proper credit card sized residencia cards with no expiry date on them!
Yay, that’s another step on.
