We add to this section all the time as things change. Don’t be put off certain things may look like a lot of work but in reality much of it is common sense and not too difficult to do. For those who do not speak Spanish it is advisable to find professional help in dealing with paperwork. A small investment in a ‘Gestor’, or administrative professional, can save you a lot of time. Many of these advisors speak English and can handle all the bureaucratic hurdles; look for the sign saying Gestoría.
Paperwork and relevant copies are very important here and we have tried to offer advice to make it as easy as possible. We will update all these items on a regular basis to ensure you are not caught out. If you have any useful information you would like us to add to this section, please contact us today.
