Students from the EU
Students who come from a Member State of the European Union or from Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway or Switzerland, have the right to free movement and residence in Spain.
Even so, all EU citizens who reside in Spain for a period longer than 3 months, must request their registration in the Central Registry of Foreigners. This registration will entail the issuance of a registration certificate and will include a foreigner identification number (NIE).
To process it, you must go to the Police Station of the town or city where you live:
A) If you live in Barcelona, visit the Police Station located at Rambla Guipúzcoa, 74 in Barcelona, and request an appointment via the website Electronic Office (Access the procedure> Barcelona> Accept> Request for authorizations> Accept> Enter).
B) If you live in a location other than Barcelona or L'Hospitalet, go to your nearest Police Station.
