Hi,

Could anybody with EU passport who recently moved to Spain give me a practical advise. I mean, what a newcomer should do upon his arrival to Spain. Where to go to register with the authorities, where to go to get an ID number for revenue purpose (here in Ireland it\'s called RSI number, without it the employer won\'t hire you). What about medical assistance and school for kids? Are they free or not? What is the best way of finding a job: a recruitment agency, internet or word of mouth? Any other useful information or links will be really appreciated.

Documenting is a police function Jan 7, 2003

Upon arrival, get in touch with the airport police headquarters and ask where to find the city\'s \"Comisaría de Extranjeros\".

Sorry, that wasn't quite a complete answer... Jan 7, 2003

Once you\'ve got your EU ID, that\'s all your employers will need. If going freelance, go to the Delegación de Hacienda and get a \"número de identificación fiscal\". Register it with the Census and take out a tax account corresponding to your projected activity. Things have been set up in Hacienda so all that processing can be done at a go.

¡Bienvenida, Galina! Jan 9, 2003

Entiendo que TIENES un pasaporte de la UE. Si es así, lo que tienes que hacer es dirigirte a la Brigada de Extranjería, aunque en la sección de ciudadanos europeos (en Madrid, Plaza de la Remonta). ¡Cuidado! El burócrata español, cuando escucha un acento que suena un poco eslavo o sudamericano, enseguida te manda a la OTRA Brigada de Extranjería (para el resto del mundo). Siempre has de hacer hincapié en que ERES CIUDADANA EUROPEA. En la Brigada de Extranjería debes registrarte como residente en España, con lo que te asignarán un NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjero), con el cual, siguiendo las explicaciones de Parrot, irás a Hacienda a solicitar tu NIF (Número de Identificación Fiscal). Parrot es un tanto optimista en cuanto a la agilidad de la burocracia española...

¡Paciencia y bienvenida!

Un abrazo,

Emilio
