Default Retiring to Spain post Brexit

Good morning
We have just sold our property in the UK and are looking to retire to Spain at some point this year. We were initially drawn to Menorca as we have friends on the island, however we are flying to Barcelona to recce the coast by car and flying back from Alicante. Having lived in Jersey for a number of years we prefer quieter areas with coves rather that the traditional resorts.

We will be pursuing the NLV route, however we are finding it surprisingly difficult to obtain general advice

We will be requiring financial/taxation advice and advice on the visa process

Any help would be much appreciated

There are many posts on here with all the info you might need.

It is a difficult process, but don't be put off. Good luck :-)

There are quite a few threads in relation to Visa process, but it is probably recommended that you seek independent advice. That must of been many years ago in in Jersey as the island is quite overcrowded now (still have family friends there). If you are driving down south from Barcelona you will basically miss most of the coast with the coves. Costa Brava would be more like Plémont in Jersey and similar to Menorca, so you are better off going North.

Thank you for that we miss Plémont and Beauport. It was 10 years ago, we lived in La Ruette very near Hamptonne country life museum

So do you suggest heading north towards Girona?

We live in Ireland now, but do have a holiday home between Vidreres/Lloret/Tossa, mainly as land was a bit cheaper and prefer green around us too. Obviously places like Begur or Llfranc are very expensive, but you can still find affordable parts and have the Camí de Ronda (a coastal walk) so again similar to coastal walks in Jersey.
It all depends on your budget of course. So basically all Girona province.

Hi,
Do you have a UK, EU or Irish passport?

To apply for a non lucrative visa you will need to apply through the Spanish consulate in the UK. You will need to meet the income and healthcare requirements.

You will need to prove that you have an income of €27,792.96 for the first person per annum plus €6,948.24 for each additional person within the family.
The income could be accepted as savings plus a substantial income.
You will need full private healthcare paid for a full year for each family member.
You will need other documentation as required which will need to be translated into Spanish.

If you gain the NLV you can then move to Spain and apply for residency within the first month.

Apologies, I don't understand what you mean by this: The income could be accepted as savings plus a substantial income.

As you will be required to meet the income requirements you can submit an income source, ie private pension etc to the required level or equivalent savings plus a substantial income.

Head further south to Gibraltar

Less hassle and warmer

So if you are a UK passport holder can u just move to Gibraltar seamlessly?

Any recommended websites for checking out house prices in Gibraltar?

As Gibraltar will soon be back into Spanish hands it might be a choice but it is a very poor section of Spain with drug runners and immigrants from Africa in the waters almost everyday..

The NLV is good for 1 year and then reapplying you will have to maintain the income / savings requirements to maintain the visa and the right to live here.

In the Valencian community (the best) there are villajosia or el campello though Campello can get a little busy in the summer months.
