Once you are informed that your carné was issued, enter the Agencia Digital. On the main page in the left menu under "Citas en linea", subpoint "para recojo de documentos" you can make the appointment to pick up your carné (don't forget to download and print the confirmation).

Be aware that at some Migraciones offices in the provinces no appointment is needed.

To pick up your carné at the branch, which you entered on the Agencia Digital, you just need your passport and your printed appointment. Migraciones personal will point you in the right direction where you are handed your carné.

Congrats! You made it!
