Healthcare in Spain for UK Citizens

Until the end of the Brexit Transition Period on 31 December 2020, those with a right to treatment with the British National Health Service had their access to the Spanish public health system guaranteed under the Withdrawal Agreement ratified earlier that year. Since 1 January 2021, however, this access has been governed by the Protocol on Social Security Coordination under the Trade and Co-operation Agreement finalised between the EU and UK on Christmas Eve.

Border workers and remote work

One of the main worries regarding the consequences of Brexit involves the thousands of people, such as lorry drivers, who work in countries where they do not live, so-called ‘border workers’. Now that free movement between the UK and EU no longer applies, these workers will have to follow a new set of rules in order to continue carrying out their job. The Withdrawal Agreement, signed between the United Kingdom and the European Union in January 2020, safeguards these border workers’ rights so long as they were in this profession before the end of the transition period on the 31st of...

Enforcement of foreign judgments after BREXIT

A brief overview of the situation with enforcement of foreign judgments after BREXIT on cross-border civil and commercial cases linked to Spain.

Over several decades, the EU has developed a set of rules to resolve this...

New rules for UK citizens travelling to Spain

On 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom officially left the European Union. However, until the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, travel and immigration rules remained the same. Now that the transition period has ended, Britons no longer have an automatic right to live and work in the EU. As a result, UK citizens travelling to Spain for tourism, study, work or residency will be subject to different rules. The EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, approved by both sides in late January 2020, guarantees UK citizens who are legally resident in Spain the same rights they enjoyed before Brexit. They...

BREXIT: New 2-STEP Procedure to Obtain Residency for British nationals

As of this week, #Spain is introducing a new 2-step procedure to obtain #residency certificates for #UK Nationals who wish to reside in Spain post-#Brexit. The #Withdrawal Agreement between UK and EU sets a transitional period until 31 December 2020, until which UK citizens retain all the rights as if the country were still a member of the EU. However, for all new applications from 6 July 2020, UK citizens will be issued not with a #green-residency certificate as other EU citizens, but with a third-country credit-card type ID called “#TIE” –Tarjeta de Identidad del Extranjero. This card will indicate the...
