    From what I've read, you now need to prove that you can financially support yourself to be allowed to stay. Many brits living over there may have little more than the state pension, and I don't know if that would be enough to qualify.

    They tried everything to get rid of him even sent him to the Palace so her Maj could tell him off but apparently we gave him residence. I reckon he will be Andy's alibi when he was working at the Pizza place

    From the entire Schengen area, no less.

    From what I've read, it sounds like some Brits have been living in Spain without ever applying for residency (ie. under the radar). I think you're supposed to apply within 3 months of moving to Spain.

    Unfortunately, now that we've left the EU, it appears that they are being treated as visitors with no automatic right to stay, even though they were "living" in Spain prior to the end of the transition period. They can still apply for residency but the bar is set much higher now that we're a 3rd country.

    Apparently, one reason for not applying for residency was to avoid Spanish taxes. Another reason was so people could still access the NHS and not have to pay for private health care in Spain.

    Yes they have the right if they apply before 31st December, prove they have lived there for 5 years (just like EU nationals living in the UK) and some other requirements like having private healthcare, it looks like in the OPs example they couldn't prove all the requirements and their application was rejected

    It's a yes, but.

    I did read up on it but have since forgotten the details.

    I know, it's this kind of detailed insight that's needed round these parts. Happy to be of service.
