Are you ready for the end of the transition period?
We are glad to inform all our clients and readers that in accordance to Instruction of 2nd July 2020; a new procedure for issuing the residence permit for citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland nationals has been put in place.
In fact, the new TIE regulation simplifies the process greatly for nationals from the United Kingdom (as well as their family members and any other persons residing in Spain); who will be entitled to receive a residence document, expressly indicating their status, as a beneficiary of the withdrawal Agreement.
For those who already hold the residency certificate, you will not be obliged to exchange it; although according to our experience with other clients, the exchange process is fairly quick and simple.
On the contrary, for those who are submitting the application for the first time; the requirements (in particular the financial criteria) will vary depending on your personal status (i.e single, married, children); employee of a company, business entrepreneur ( i.e “self-employed or “autonomo”, company shareholder…), pensioner, etc
Remember that time is of the essence, as the transitional period will last, until 31 December 2020; so for those applying for the first time; you will need a minimum of 3 months to prepare all the required certificates from the bank and the Spanish authorities.
For more specific information or advice about this important topic; please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we will be delighted to point you in the right direction.
Thank you very much for your attention and we look forward to helping you.
