New Opportunities to Ask Questions About Brexit in Alicante and Murcia
In November and December, the British Consulate in Alicante is running a series of 17 events for UK nationals on Living in Spain and Brexit where British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris and her team will update residents with the latest information on Brexit and what this means for UK nationals living in Spain.
Please see to the right for a list of dates and venues. You will be able to speak to an expert from the Town Hall about your padrón and clarify how to register as a resident in Spain under current rules. You will also be able to speak to local voluntary groups about the support networks that are available for UK nationals living in the area.
If you have specific questions on residency paperwork or anything else about living in Spain and Brexit, please bring them along to discuss with one of the members of the Consular team. Brexpats In Spain, affiliated with the British in Europe group, will also be attending to assist people with legal and financial advice and to update on their current position with striving to defend the rights of British in Spain.
You do not have to be resident to attend the events, since they are open for anyone who is interested in finding out more. For specific questions about the padrón it would be helpful to attend an event where you live.
British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris said “As the negotiations continue, the Consulate will continue with the outreach events that we have planned across the Alicante area to update citizens. I continue to urge all UK nationals living in Spain to ensure you are correctly registered and stay up to date with the latest news, by signing up for email alerts, visiting the Living in Spain guide on gov.uk and following our Brits in Spain social media channels, including on Facebook.”
