I have an NIE number but now want to apply for residencia. I own a house just outside Velez Blanco, just over the border into Lorca/Murcia so my question is can I apply for residencia at the police station in Velez Rubio or will  I have to go to Lorca? Can anyone help please?

You will I believe have to go to your closest Extranjeria office, which I think MIGHT be Lorca, but could also be Murcia.

The only police stations that can process Residencia are CNP stations I believe, as CNP are the organization that deal with extranjeros.  

As you are over the border, you’ll not go to Almería ... but certainly get yourself a gestor to guide you through the process.

Best of luck.

Thanks Dario - can you recommend a gestor?

Not up your end of town, I’m afraid - I’m down in Vera, a good 40 minutes drive down the E15.

If you were willing to travel, I’d say C.A.T services in La Alfoquia .... in fact it may we’ll be worth contacting them ANYWAY via email to see if they can recommend anyone in your area.

CATS services will not deal with it as you are in Murcia region.

If you follow Jim's Guide on this Forum you can do it quite easily yourself and apply for an appointment at Lorca Policia Nacional.
