Default Introduction - Hoping to relocate to Spain

Hi all, just joined this forum

My partner and I live in Chile at the moment but are hoping to re locate to Spain to be closer to my family in the UK. My partner is a US citizen and I am a British citizen and we are planning on moving to Spain and getting married in Gibraltar and then applying for residency in Spain under the Freedom of Movement for EU citizens and their spouses, my partner has a modest pension from the US that we live on so we will be looking for a cheap, small place to rent, probably in Northern Spain as we have heard it is cheaper there, my partner speaks fluent spanish but has a visual impairment so cant read text, I dont speak much spanish so when I try and read things to him in my awful accent, he laughs, lol. If anyone has any advice for us of areas to live in, places where they make it easier when applying for NIEs and residency or anyone else who has married in Gibraltar etc please let me know. I am sure I will have lots of other questions too, thanks all

Regards

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
