We made it! - relocated from the UK to Tarragona

Me, my fella and our 2 dogs just relocated from the UK to Tarragona. We've only been here for 3 days but we absolutely love it already!

Anyone who's been thinking about it during this lockdown craziness, now is the time, while you can still get your NIE and residency sorted, and I can almost guarantee you won't regret it 😊💃

Good luck, relocating was a decision I've not regretted so far. I hope it's the same for you. 

And, as of Monday the process is for the new TIE so good luck with that too!

Re the TIE for brits

Under the Withdrawal Agreement the rights of Brit cannot change until the end of the transition period.  Thus EU citizen Registration must continue

I understand from 6 July brits can choose to apply for a TIE but it cannot be compulsory until 1st Jan 2021.

It appears.  Application for the TIE can only be done at the provincial centre not the national police.   However I have seen too that it might be possible to initially start the application online

If I were in that situation, I would wait a couple of weeks to how the ‘guinea pigs’ shake out the system !!!

British persons will be able to request a document of residence in Spain from July 6th

The Directorates-General for Migration and the Police have approved an instruction that allows British residents in Spain, before the effective entry into Brexit on January 31st, to request from July 6th, optionally, a document accrediting their residence in Spain.

The BOE published today Saturday, states that nationals of the United Kingdom residing in Spain "will not have the obligation to apply for a new resident status nor, therefore, undergo a new documentation process, but they will have the right to receive (...) a residence document that expressly reflects their status as a beneficiary of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement”.

Temporary residence documents will be valid for 5 years and permanent ones for 10 years.
