Make the most of living and working in Barcelona

Expat living in Barcelona raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Spanish authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺIn which cases do I need a so-called "Residencia" to stay for longer than half a year?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend special food stores in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Barcelona takes a lot of time. Our Barcelona expat guide is there to make your relocation to Barcelona as easy as possible. Starting with health-care to information about local organisations & companies, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Barcelona.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Barcelona, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from working in Abu Dhabi to working in Dubai.
