Hi all
Just a quick word of warning for anyone thinking of relocating here in the near future and also for those ,who like me,have been here a few years and thought they ´´knew the system´´ :(
Got a phone call this week from daughter´s school... asking both of us to call in (yeah...know its the school hols ...so thought no one would be there.....never is NORMALLY) :? :?
Called in to find other parents/children also there and a FULL admin staff present. :shock: :shock: ..it appears that since the vote to leave the EU...Spain have tightened up their procedures MASSIVELY :cry: :cry: ....and now require proof of residencia/passport/empadronamiento/registration with both Seguridad Social and registering locally with a doctor.....FOR ALL CHILDREN of Brit parents( and the appropriate documents relating to their parents too :wink: )....no proof = no schooling :roll: :roll: ......and if you are missing one of the proverbial ´´pieces of paper´´ you only have to the last week in this October to produce it....bit of a pain if you need a residencia for your kid as the waiting list is 3 months long already... :oops: :oops:
Good job that I actually had it all...but had to go back home to get it as there was no mention of what they needed on the phone 8) 8)
10 years here and NEVER been asked for all of it....maybe the odd form but ALL OF IT :| :| .....staff just said ´´was due to Brexit´´ as if we should have expected it....to be honest I did...just not so quick :twisted: :twisted:

Yes, the whole of EU is cracking down on illigal immigration - more to do with all the troubles than Brexit.
About time too.
If you are not legal you can't stay - same for all countries. Spain needs well off Brits - not skint freeloaders with a chip on their shoulder.

That is not my point....the point was that the ´´crackdown´´ (if you will) was not aimed at others .....but specifically at Brits ....and was clearly explained that it WAS because of Brexit....and for no other reason :roll: :roll: ,,,,
Just for fun.....a short film about the joys of dealing with the Spanish ´´paperchase´´ :lol: :lol:

Well.. sorry to say it like this, but what else did you (Brits) expect??... Some Brits are OK, but frankly speaking, the general Brit society is not thinking clear... You can't expect the world to go round you, to have it all and do whatever you think is best for you, AND neglecting other nations and their own priorities...
I suppose spending 10 years or so in one place is almost like a real home, but... unless you don't have a Spanish passport, you could be easily kicked out ;)
