Working and living in Spain – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Spain requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Spanish expat life. Living abroad in Spain raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Spain?ʺ, ʺWill I be able to make a living as an EFL teacher in a Spanish metropolis?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Madrid should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Spanish municipality in Barcelona?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Spain is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Spain aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Spain. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from education and children, to local organisations & companies or health-care, up to expat institutions & clubs. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺIn which cases do I need a so-called "Residencia" to stay for longer than half a year?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
