Re: How can mum join me

Admittedly Portugal, for example, would be easier because the minimum income threshold is lower and they offer free health care to all residents but the OP probably doesn't want to up sticks and move...

Some more stinking hypocrisy here, this time from the BBC:

Re: Gibraltar 2

My partner does sometimes have their passport stamped at airports (depends on the border guard) but not when entering Spain from Gibraltar. I believe that (a) having an EU partner and (b) EU...

Re: Gibraltar 2

They show their residency papers to the Spanish border force which is what I would expect.

When you (British) voted Leave, you voted to be a third country and lose your freedom of movement which...

Re: Brexit

Old man Johnson has helped himself to a French passport so that he can avoid the 90/180 day Schengen rules and enjoy the freedom of movement his rotten son took away from UK nationals.

Re: Gibraltar 2

We are frequent visitors to Gibraltar and I've had no problems with entry/exit using my Irish passport or my passport card which is like an ID card. My British partner piggy backs off my EU status...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

It sounds like your brother is on the padron in Torrox - there is no NHR in Spain. We are resident in Portugal and needed written proof of address in Spain from the town hall so they told us we...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

This is pure speculation but my guess is the Commission are tightening up the Schengen borders for third country nationals via EES and ETIAS and trying to keep freedom of movement as free flowing and...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

Frankly, the official would have been somewhat baffled as to why tourists were bothering to register for a six month holiday, rules or not.

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

I'm going to try and find someone who has gone through this exact procedure. Someone on here perhaps?

Obviously it is not open to UK nationals now.

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

You are supposed to apply for residency if you intend to relocate permanently and you are automatically tax resident if you stay for more than 183 days.

Nobody is going to apply for full...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

I have yet to meet a EU tourist who has registered after three months but I'll take your word for it. Obviously they cease to be a tourist and apply for full residency if they decide to permanently...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

Not if their partner is an EU national - see above. I wrote to the EU and they confirmed it.

Important point, freedom of movement for EU nationals and their partners trumps everything. The EU...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

It doesn't matter which EU state your partner is from, the third country partner any EU national can stay for 183 days in any EU state as long as you travel together.

The EES and ETIAS systems only apply to third country nationals (not EU nationals) entering the Schengen zone and I don't think either will apply to third country EU residents entering the zone but...

Re: UK expat living in Germany how many days can I stay in Spain

I agree, there is no way of anyone knowing you are in a different Schengen state. OK, you could find yourself in a situation where you had to produce ID but so what? You have a German ID card and...
