Are you an expat living in Madrid? You will surely come across many questions, such as ʺWhat documents does the Spanish aliens department require for a work permit?”, ʺIn which cases do I need a so-called "Residencia" to stay for longer than half a year?ʺ, or ”What can other expats recommend for special food stores in town?”
