How do I get my residency?

Hi, I've been living in Puerto del Rosario now for nearly two years. I moved over here with my boyfriend, we brought an apartment but it's in his name. I would like to get my residency but don't know how to get it. I'm not working so don't have a contract of employment. I have been told if I get private medical insurance this would be accepted towards residency. Is this true or any other advice as to how I can apply?

Thanks in advance.

Hi it is true about the medical insurance but have you got an NIE ? To get residencia isn’t difficult but there’s lots of paper work and speaking Spanish is very helpful. We used a company called boxpro. He wasn’t expensive and very professional. There are loads of other people that will help you for a price. But NIE number, el padron and health insurance are a must. Oh and about €6000 in a Spanish bank account too if your not working. Hope this helps.

I would get my name on the property because if anything happens to him it would be a nightmare proving you brought the property with him then when you have done that you have the rights to a residency if you can prove you have lived there for 2 years and have a bank account proving you are paying utilities electric water mobile in either your name or both of your names read HMRC LIVING IN SPAIN don’t pay for health insurance at this stage you don’t need it if he’s working and your a couple living toge

When you mean residency do you mean permanent residency? I am from the UK and did NOT have to have private medical insurance to get residency. Don't be ripped off by companies offering to do things for money that you can do for free with a little effort.

It is true you must show that you have your own financial means and this means a Job, money in the bank and somewhere to live. Does you NIE not have an address on it. Mine does. Are you registered in Puerto del Rosario?

I agree will JillGleeson62 and FluffyPen. You must have some paperwork that you exist and pay bills and check out proper advice websites for help before paying companies and people who charge you money. BTW: You don't say what nationality you are will may make a difference.

I received permanent residency in December last year because I have lived here for more than 5 year. I had to show up to date certificate from el padrón. Fill in usual form, pay and had my NIE converted to permanent. 

The best ever advice I found to follow were here.

Good luck
