You did not say where you lived. My father had to renew his rediencias as he had his wallet stolen. We went to the policia national in Cartagena. He filled out 2 forms, paid 6.80€ (I think this amount is correct!) and he brought with him a photo and the original of his passport. The whole thing took 5 mins including his fingerprints.

We took all sorts of other paperwork with us Padron, denuncia etc but they were not needed.

Hope this helps.

Hi Digby maybe I should have read this entry before I asked you the questions about Cartagena. Thank you for the information, I will give it ago and report back. Do you not think it was easier for your father in law because he had already applied in the past and it was a replacement?

We should be sorting our residencia out at the end of the month, it will also be in Cartagena so I will let everyone know how we get on.
