Stresses of Getting Stuff Together for a Metro Card and Residential Card

I’ve become over whelmed with all the stuff I need to do for obtaining a metro card and submitting paperwork for my residential. I’ve read different blogs to get information, but I am dashed and confused  with all the information I’ve processed.  So many appointments to make and money to spend!!!

Abona Card

  • A passport (if you’re a foreigner) or Spanish ID.
  • A photocopy of your ID.
  • An ID-sized photo, which you can take in photo booths in most metro stations. (Note: Some appointment locations, like Sol and Avenida de América, will take a photo for you.)
  • A phone number.
  • Your address.
  • €5 for the transport card.
  • €35 (joven) or €54,60 (normal) for your first recharge. You can pay in cash or with a credit/debit card (in most locations). It’s best to have cash on-hand just in case.
