Me and my wife are looking to move to fuerventura in about 5-6 years tops we will both be retired with money to buy a property and have money to self support (hopefully £250,000 in bank) was wondering if you know the situation with brexit now we are (supposedly definitely) leaving how we stand becoming residents etc

Reorient here is easier than you think but make sure you plan well in advance. If you take holidays over the next 5 years then begin the process and get something done well in advance such as setting up a Bank Account etc.

We finally move full-time over here in 2018 but had all paperwork and other things set up from 2011. Somethings can take a while. Given your time schedule I would make use of the 12 month BREXIT transition period to get a non-resident NIE and set up a Bank Account as this will make life easier after the transition period. You will have some official paperwork to convert to whatever residency format UK Citizens will have. I am thinking we will have automatic conversion of EU NIE to Foreign National residency card, but who knows.


To reiterate. Get your ducks in a row well in advance and be prepared to take time with lots of paperwork. Main priority get a NIE and Bank Accouny. Without this you can do NOTHING.


Good luck
