In this section you will find everything you need to prepare for your move to Barcelona.
Residence permit (TIE – Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjero)
Foreigners’ Identification Number (NIE)
Non-EU citizens receive a Foreigner’s Identity Number (NIE) during the visa issuing process.
Residents of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland must apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before coming to Spain. Once you have found accommodation in Barcelona, we recommend that you register at the nearest primary care center (CAP) so you will have a primary care physician.
Register in Barcelona
Once you have found accommodation, you need to register with the municipal census to access certain public services such as healthcare, to get your driver’s license, etc.
