OM Spain accepted cases or worked on requests for support from UKN's until the 31st December 2021. However from 1st Jan 2022 our helplines are now closed and we will not be taking new cases.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has been providing practical support to UK Nationals who may find it harder to complete their residency applications to secure and maintain their residency rights in EU countries now that the UK has left the EU. In Spain, the Project has been supporting UK nationals residing in Spanish territory with a special focus on the Community of Madrid, the Community of Andalusia, the Region of Murcia, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla y León and Extremadura and the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla.
Now that the project is reaching its end, although people who are still interested are able to find general information online in the British Government’s guide on living in Spain and in the Spanish Government website. IOM has prepared and upload some documents we believe could be useful in order to obtain residency, particularly for those UK Nationals living with disabilities, those grappling with chronic illnesses and those facing specific barriers related to language, literacy or access to technology.
Therefore, if you are a UK national who was lawfully living in Spain before 31st December 2020, you and your close family members have the right to request a Withdrawal Agreement residency card called the TIE (Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjero). This residency permit provides evidence of your rights in Spain as a beneficiary of the Withdrawal Agreement.
