BREXIT- A Time for Reflection

Acknowledging the outcome of the vote and understanding your concerns, ask that you allow time for reflection.

The messages coming out from the British Government and the acting prime minister in Spain are positive. There is a need to remain calm. There will be no changes being implemented at present. If article 50 of the Lisbon treaty is triggered by the UK parliament, we can expect two years’ or more respite before any agreements are put in place. To clarify, nothing changes as suggested for two years or until an agreement has been reached with the other 27 EU countries.

Following the many experts on the topic of Brexit has helped to formulate an understanding of what options are available to our community in Spain. Many UK ex-pats are understandably worried and looking for answers to significant questions, it would be irresponsible for the advisers at CAB Spain to attempt to answer these. Please note that the advisers have been able to assist and advise our community with the correct information by adhering to both the Spanish Royal Decree and the EU Directives. Until we have any legal changes, we will continue with the status quo.

Whilst trying to remain positive, we are also aware that the Spanish bureaucracy may receive mixed messages which could complicate matters if any of the administrative offices preempt our status. Our assistance and advice continues to be available should mistakes occur, but, We expect that our rights will continue to be respected.

Anyone who feels that they are being discriminated against due to Brexit, can contact us.

We would like to reassure citizens from the UK living in Spain but, CAB Spain are keeping a close watch on the situation. We are not receiving information from any source nor do we expect to do so. We continue to keep in touch with any progress or news on this matter and now includes cooperation with offices in the UK.

We will keep you all updated. We should also consider that This is not a time for recriminations, but, a time for reflection and to stand together.

Please note that today, tomorrow and for some time to come, we are all still EU Citizens.
