I was approved to study in Spain for a full year and received a Spanish VISA that allowed me to stay until 11/27/18 which is now expired but Spanish police station processed my documents to get me a citizen card and said the card would be ready in 45 days. I received this notice on 11/09/18. I was able to use the document to re-enter Italy after traveling in Morocco. I had to leave back to the United States for an emergency but now I need to go back to Spain. I need to pickup my temporary citizen card at the city in Spain but I'm afraid they'll reject me out of the country. I asked the local embassy in San Francisco but they said I need to wait 90 days after my student VISA expires which is in June 28, 2019 before I can re-enter Europe. Wouldn't they have my information in the system? Is it problematic to leave and re-enter Schengen area from the USA? Can I have the police station mail the card to me here in the states? Or can anyone recommend me how to re-enter Italy or somewhere to take a bus to that police station in Spain where I can get my temporary ID card for schengen area?
