July 30/07/21.

The team will be taking time off during the month of August. Hope you understand that we work as volunteers all hours including weekends. If not on the on the Facebook group then we are on the website answering emails and taking phone calls.

Facebook Group will not be open for posting during this period. You can use keywords to search posts with answers on the group.

Thank you all for your patience in what has been yet another difficult year. We are glad to have been able to assist you.

Please do peruse the website for the answers or information you seek.

The Ask for Advice section on our website and our emails, will remain available during this holiday period.

The phones will not be available during August. The Ask for Advice section is open.

Please only contact us if absolutely necessary. For all those concerned about residency applications, remember the key to making sure that you are covered under the Withdrawal Agreement, is to have proof of your legal residency here before the end of the Transition Period December 31. Legal residency does not mean holding residency or registration documents. It implies that you are here legally under article 7 of the FOM directive.

The green registration (residency) certificates remain valid.

We rarely ask for donations but please take into account were not funded by any entity and rely on our members to support us so that we can continue to assist you. The options for making donations can be found on this link.


Stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy and we will be back with you in September.

If you should need a lawyer during our absence, consider the Lawyer Smart Card.

How Can Citizens Advice Bureau Spain Benefit You?

As an expatriate living in Spain; do you find that the Spanish bureaucratic system can be disconcerting? Have you discovered that the simplest of transactions are difficult to conclude? Find yourself searching for answers to problems only to discover that there is nowhere where you could find a solution? I am assuming that the answer is yes and that is why should be a member of our web site if you arent already.
