Are you about to submit your residence permit application in Spain? Then keep on reading! In this article you will find the links to download and pay all the necessary immigration fees. Besides, you will also learn how the process works exactly and which are its costs.
How does it work?
If you are going to submit your immigration file in Spain, either for an initial application or for the renewal of your residence permit, you must pay a fee associated with that procedure.
It is very simple.
As well as presenting the rest of the documents in your file (such as the census or “padrón”, proof of enough financial resources, passport, etc.), you must also provide proof that you have paid the corresponding fee properly.
Thus, you should not wait for the immigration office’s request to formalize the payment: you must do it beforehand, before submitting your application.
This will be one of the necessary steps when preparing all the required documentation.
If you follow the guidelines we will see below, after making the payment you will automatically get a receipt, which is the document that must be included with the rest.
Without a doubt, this is a very easy and simple process, but in this post we will provide all the details so you don’t need to worry about anything.

How to download and pay the corresponding fees?
Once you access through the link below (link to the fee that applies to your particular case), you will see that there are two different options available to formalize the payment: doing it online or printing the fee and paying it in person.
The first option is much faster and consists of paying via the internet through the Government’s Electronic Headquarters. But in order to do it, you will need to have your electronic ID card or digital certificate.
On the other hand, you can also download the corresponding pdf document and bring it to a bank; that is, paying in person. In this case, you will have to select the region where you are living, print all the documents associated, and submit them to the partnering entity.
Let’s see which are the 4 main model fees and each of their links for you to download/pay them:
Model 790 Code 052. This is the fee to be paid by the foreign worker when applying for a residence and work authorization. But also the relevant fee for stay purposes, and for other documentation required by the foreign citizen living in Spain.
Model 790 Code 062. In this case we are talking about the fee that is paid by the employer who hires the foreigner who will acquire a residence and work authorization.
Model 790 Code 012. The fee you must pay to go to register your fingerprints and pick up your physical residence card or TIE.
Model 790 Code 038. For procedures under the law for entrepreneurs with the Large Business Unit (UGE).
It is important that you do not confuse these forms with the immigration forms required to apply for a residence permit. The forms we have seen here serve exclusively to pay the fee associated with the process.
How much do they cost?
This is undoubtedly a very frequent question.
The cost of each immigration fee is something that changes every year; and although the increase is not usually very large, you should be aware of the exact amount at the time of your application.
In addition, depending on the residence authorization or procedure you are carrying out, the price will also differ, usually ranging from € 15-20.
What can I do if I maka a mistake when paying?
It is common to find cases in which the foreign makes a mistake in the payment of the corresponding fee. Either because she pays a different amount than the one required, or because she has paid the wrong fee.
If this is your situation, don’t worry. There is an online process to claim the refund of incorrectly paid fees, and you can find it here.
