We are very pleased with the high standard of service from the Tejada Team. They have made the residency process stress free.
With the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union on 01 January 2021, British citizens are now considered citizens of a third country. This means that when it comes to processes such as obtaining legal residence in Spain, the Legal Regime for Foreigners will apply to them. There are numerous visas available for these citizens, however, those seeking to move to Spain and obtain residency there must opt between any of the following visas; the Golden Visa, the Non-Lucrative Residence Visa (or Non-Lucrative Residence Permit), Student Visa, Highly qualified professional Visa, Employment work Visa or Self‐employment work Visa.
These residency permits will be valid until a new mobility scheme is negotiated within a future relationship agreement between the UK and the EU.
For British expatriates who were already residing in Spain before 31 December 2020 but do not have a Union Citizen Registration Certificate or TIE Card, you may continue to reside in Spain as long as you provide evidence of your residency from before this date. In accordance with the requirements set out in the Withdrawal Agreement, we recommend that you apply for a TIE card. For more information regarding the TIE Card procedure, read our article on Spanish Residency.
