Keeping you informed - about all things ex-pat

Should Brits become Spanish after Brexit?

Following Brexit, is there anything I can do to make sure I can remain in Spain?

This is one of the many questions on the lips of expatriates, after the vote to leave the European Union. So what can expats in Spain do to protect themselves?

The answer could be to become a Spanish national. Terms and conditions apply, but you could be eligible if you have a Spanish parent; have lived legally and continuously in Spain for at least 10 years, or are married to a Spaniard.

In other cases, British-born people have applied for Irish passports since the Brexit result. Already more than 3,700 Brits have applied to swap their British passports for an Irish one under ancestry rules.
