Many of our customers are expats who’ve come over to Spain to live the good life, and we know there are a huge number more who’re hoping to make the leap, yet are at a loss as to what to do, and where to go for information. Here are 5 useful sites/articles that’ll set you on the right road.
Excellent article, sharing valuable tips such as “When dealing with any facet of Spanish bureaucracy, remember The Law of Falta Uno: that however many documents and photocopies you take along there will always be ONE missing. Always double check that you have every piece of paper that you think you might need (and possibly even a few more that you don’t).
Be patient. Be assertive. Take plenty of reading material. Rope in a friendly mentor who speaks the lingo, and check any papers you are given with a fine tooth comb for names, dates, accounts numbers and more BEFORE you leave the desk or ventanilla (window). Any undiscovered glitch may set you back years. Oh, and don’t forget the rabbit’s foot”.
Fantastic checklist to go through before moving to spain, including sections on what to do 6 months before you leave, during the month before you leave, and when you arrive.
