New regulations have been enacted in Spain setting out what UK citizens working or living in Spain after Brexit will be required to do to maintain their right to live and work there.
The regulations apply to UK and Northern Irish citizens living in Spain before the exit date. Affected individuals must apply for a special work and residence permit within 21 months of Brexit. During this 21 month “transition period”, UK nationals will broadly maintain the same rights they currently have under EU law (except, for example, the right to vote and stand in elections to the European Parliament).
Dentons’ lawyers in Spain have put together a summary of the key points of the regulations, which can be found here.
