On 17 and 18 March the British Consulate in Alicante is holding four separate outreach events to update UK nationals in Alicante and Murcia on what the UK’s departure from the EU means for them.
Members of the consular and Embassy team will explain the citizens’ rights protections included in the Withdrawal Agreement and advise on any action you need to take during the transition period (to 31 December 2020). There will also be a Q&A section for you to ask questions on issues including residency, pensions and healthcare.
British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris said: “The approval of the Withdrawal Agreement is a very important step for UK nationals living here. It provides reassurance on key rights, such as being able to continue to live and work here, and for pensioners to have lifelong healthcare and uprated pensions. We will provide an update on the latest residency processes at our March events, but meanwhile, be assured that if you already have the green registration certificate (A4 or credit card-sized) this will remain a valid residency document even after the transition period ends on 31 December this year. For further information visit the Living in Spain Guide on gov.uk and follow our Brits in Spain channel on Facebook”.
