With year-round sunshine and more than 8,000km of beaches it is no surprise that Spain is the third most popular destination for Brits moving abroad. Combine that with the laid-back lifestyle, reasonably priced properties, and landmass twice the size of the UK with only two-thirds of its population and you can see why Spain is one of our most frequently requested removals destinations. Whether you are moving just a couple of items to a new holiday home or relocating entirely to sunnier climes, we’ll take the same care, door to door.

Over one million UK expats currently call Spain their home, with the majority of relocation occurring in three main areas: Andalucia in the South; Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands; and the Valencia region on Spain’s east coast. A large British presence means English is widely spoken but it is wise to learn some Spanish for convenience and to help integration. This is especially important if you intend to work in Spain.

How can I move to Spain after Brexit?  

Now that the UK has left the EU, the rules on moving permanently to Spain have changed; you can travel to Europe for up to 90 days within a 180-day period after Brexit, but you will now need a visa if you are moving to another country within the EU. Most countries will also require that your passport is valid for at least six months before you travel, no matter how long your stay, so ensure your passport is up to date well before you plan to move. 

British ex-pats who wish to move to Spain after Brexit or an extended period now need to apply for a visa that corresponds to the purpose of their stay. A visa application for an adult currently costs €80, and the application must be submitted from within the UK, within 90 days of your intended travel date. 

There are three types of visas that allow you to work and live in Spain: the combined work permit and residence visa, the student visa, and the visa for family reunification or retirement. It is also worth noting that you will need to obtain a foreign identity number known as Número de Identidad de Extranjero or NIE, as well as a Tarjeta de Residencia or residency card.   

For more advice on obtaining a Spanish visa, check out our Can I Move to Spain After Brexit guide for further details on the visa process and life in Spain after Brexit. 

Taxing and pensions in Spain 

Non-residents will pay tax on any income arising in Spain; this includes bank interest, business dividends, property income or wages. Income tax rates are similar to the UK’s and range between 24-45%. Further details can be found at expatica.com.  

You can also continue to receive your UK state pension if you are retiring to Spain, providing you inform the DWP before your move. You may also be eligible for other UK benefits, of which further details can be found on the Gov.UK website.  

Travelling in Spain  

Travelling in Spain is simple and convenient. Spain boasts an extensive network of roads and railways and has over 91 airports, of which Madrid, Malaga, Palma, Alicante, Valencia and Barcelona are the biggest.  

As of May 1, 2022, British driving licenses are invalid in Spain, as the UK has left the EU. Spanish and British authorities are negotiating whether UK licence holders can exchange their UK licenses for Spanish ones without needing to take a test. More information can be found on the Direccion General de Trafico.
