Make the most of living and working in Canary Islands

Expat living in Canary Islands 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 Canary Islands takes a lot of time. Our Canary Islands expat guide is there to make your relocation to Canary Islands 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 Canary Islands.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Canary Islands. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world - from living in London to living in Zurich.
