Re: Bringing Car To Spain

Is your wife going remain a UK resident and return to the UK to adhere to the 90/180 rule, or will she also become Spanish resident? Basically that means she could stay in Spain or 3 months (90 days)...

Re: Healthcare access & the Convenio Especial

Re: Difference between statutory residency and fiscal residency

Spain is allowed to introduce an independent national visa within the EU rules. However, the visa would only be for use in Spain. I think that France has a similar visa and there are also "Golden...

Re: Difference between statutory residency and fiscal residency

From the dates given you must have applied for your card in 2020 (5 years temp card) so I assume that it's under the WA. When did you leave Spain?

Re: Passport stamps

I don't think that they are checking all passports, especially during busy periods but it only takes a diligent border officer on a quiet day and you're nicked. I think it's that fear that will keep...

Re: Latest figures from the Spanish Government - TIE uptake

Re: TIE & working occasionally in UK

OK, that's new to me, thanks. So a non tax resident in Spain is still liable for tax on UK earnings? It could be a nightmare claiming that back from the UK HMRC, especially with the differing tax...
