TIE Renewal

Maximum compliance

Info about TIE renewal

You can renew your student TIE when you are going to continue with your studies or when you are doing superior studies which are related to the ones you were previously doing.

The requirements to extend your TIE will be:

First: To be enrolled on a 60 credits program.
Second: To show you have good results on the last year program.

You can renew your TIE until 2 months prior and until 3 months after the date of expiration.  That gives you 150 days to do it.

Note that there is no need to get an appointment to apply for the extension of the TIE.  Once you have the Resolution you will  then have to do make a appointment at a police station to get your physical card (TIE). That is call Cita de Huellas.

Foreign language documents must be translated into Spanish by an official sworn translator. Please check the Ministry list of translators in 2019.

We can submit the extension application for you, if you want more information contact us.

Application process

There is no need for an appointment to do the renewal application. 

There are three ways to submit your application:

  • At any CORREOS post office through ORVE system. You need to provide the original document plus a copy of each required documents at the Correos office. The fees for that process will vary from 5€ to 10€.
  • By Digital certificate through MERCURIO application.
  • You can get a digital certificate at the Barcelona city hall. 
  • In person at a public registry, such us the one located in C/ Bergara num. 6. This option is the least advisable as the resolution of the renewal by this system will take more than a month. 

We can submit the documents on-line for you, if you want more information contact us
