Expats: Spain rejects 2,000 residency applications after Brexit – most common reasons

1 min read


“Applications are mostly being rejected on the grounds of insufficient evidence of legally residing in Spain in 2020, such as a Padrón (town hall registration), medical insurance or other proof people were actually living here before 2021,” she told The Local.

Mark McMillan from Sun Lawyers in Alicante explained: “Problems arise when people do not provide enough evidence of legally residing in Spain before the end of 2020.”

Mark explained the Padrón certificate is the most accepted form of evidence.

However, Diego Echavarria from Fairway Lawyers in Marbella said the most common reason to be rejected is “because people did not have medical health insurance in Spain issued before 2021.”
