Exchange of Green Residence Certificates for new Biometric TIE cards for British Nationals

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT BRITISH CITIZEN HOLDERS OF AN EU CITIZEN GREEN RESIDENCE REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE EITHER A4 SIZE OR GREEN PAPER CREDIT CARD SIZED HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO DO ANYTHING AT THE MOMENT UNLESS THEY SO WISH. THE GREEN DOCUMENTS ARE COMPLETELY VALID FOR THE TIME BEING. Having said that at local level some officials are now refusing to accept the green paper. So it may make sense to exchange now for your own convenience.

Spanish Migration Minister (Ministerio de Inclusión, Seguridad Social y Migraciones) Hana Jalloul has spoken out to encourage British Residents of Spain to exchange their Green Residence Certificates for the TIE plastic residence card and says extra staff and appointments are being arranged at the Extranjerias across Spain.
