With the UK having now officially left the EU, if you are a British citizen living in Spain, make sure you know what your rights are.
The British Consulate in Barcelona has shared a leaflet to explain the rights for UK nationals covered by the Withdrawal Agreement. Click here for a quick guide to Living and Working, Healthcare, Driving, Pensions and more.
Support in Spain
Check out this new independent, not-for-profit website Supportinspain.info created by the University of Birmingham with the support of the British Embassy in Madrid. It is aimed at British nationals resident in Spain over 50 and others who may need extra advice or help. The website provides details of official Spanish government and non-government organisations in Spain as well as many others in the voluntary sector run by local residents.
In addition, the Diocese in Europe has created a special Brexit Resources Hub on its website with links to the latest official information available, along with public statements by Bishop Robert on the matter. Click here to find out more.
Bishop Robert writes: “There is more to life than Brexit. We have our faith and families that sustain, nurture and feed us through difficult times. We should keep a sense of perspective. Let’s encourage one another through it.”
