At a time of confusion and mixed messages, the British Consul has outlined some of the rights which will remain in place for British citizens in Spain after Brexit on the 31st January.  Charmain Arbouin says that the withdrawal agreement protects some very important rights.

  • You will be able to continue to live and work in Spain
  • You will be able to exchange your driving licence until the end of 2020 without taking a driving test and your Spanish licence will be accepted in the UK when you visit
  • UK state pensioners will continue to have lifelong healthcare as long as they remain living in Spain. This also applies to residents who claim a UK state pension in the future
  • Your UK state pension will continue to be uprated

Charmaine Arbouin has been reassuring Brits in Spain.

Those rights will be protected for as long as you live in Spain, provided you are legally resident here by the end of 2020.  The British Consul says “The approval of the Withdrawal Agreement is a very important step for UK nationals living here. It provides reassurance on key rights, such as being able to continue to live and work here, and for pensioners to have lifelong healthcare and uprated pensions.”

 

“Alongside those rights, you have obligations – the main one being to make sure you are registered with a green residency certificate.” She continues. “This remains a valid document after 31 January and we will communicate any details on future residency processes once we have them.
