Registering an S1 in Spain before Residency

I've seen reports from some members, who have been unable to register their S1 form because of delays obtaining their residency/TIE.  This information from 'Brits in Spain' should help:

If you are an S1 form holder, waiting for your appointment to register your residency, you may be aware that you need to receive approval of your residency application – known as ‘resolución favorable’ - before you can register your S1 form with the INSS. 

So, how can you access healthcare in the meantime? The Overseas Healthcare Service can provide you with a Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC) to cover any treatment you need whilst you wait to register your S1 form locally.  You should call the Overseas Healthcare Team with your National Insurance (NI) number, along with the name and email address of the healthcare facility where the diagnosis/treatment is to be carried out, and they can send the PRC direct to the healthcare provider.   If your treatment facility does not have an email address available, they may be able to use your own email address.

The Overseas Healthcare Service can be contacted by phone: 0044 191 218 1999, Monday-Friday 8am-6pm (UK time).

Kind regards,

Kim

Your members may like to know, having called the Overseas Healthcare, that the PRC is only issued if you are actually receiving treatment. They do not issue so you have it in case you need treatment

Thanks Vi2v, I've just spoken to the Overseas Healthcare team and reworded my guide to make that point more specific, i.e. that you can't apply for a PRC unless and until you actually require treatment.

Kind regards,

Kim
