CONVENIENT: Instead of going to the main police stations in Orihuela, Torrevieja, Denia and Benidorm it is now possible to take advantage of this new resource in Alicante city.
THE Spanish authorities have issued a reminder that it is possible to organise next day residency appointments in Alicante city via the Spanish Government website.
In all 180 appointments are being opened up on a daily basis, and there is quite a lot of availability each day. Since appointments are opened up each day, if there are none left at the time of checking, it is worth bearing in mind there will be more the following day.
The appointments can also be used to apply for “caracter permanente” for anyone who has been resident for more than five years.
Hence anyone who used to go to the main police stations in Orihuela, Torrevieja, Denia and Benidorm can now take advantage of this new resource in the provincial capital.
The instructions for booking an appointment on the website are straightforward enough. Go to the website https://sede.administracionespublicas.gob.es/icpplus/index.html.
Select the province ‘Alicante’ from the drop down menu. Then select the option “Policia – Certificado UE (Exclusivamente Para Reino Unido)” and follow the steps to confirm the appointment.
