Nerja, November 23, 2019.-
The City Council of Nerja, through the Department of Residents, has organized in collaboration with the British Consulate an informative act for British residents of our municipality on the possible departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union, known as Brexit. The event will take place on November 27 at 10:30 in the Plenary Hall.
The councilor, Javier Rodríguez, explained that ?with this informative act we intend that our British residents resolve their doubts about all aspects related to their situation in Spain if the United Kingdom definitely leaves. There are many who go daily to the Department of Foreigners of the City Council, and therefore we have considered it appropriate to do it. ?
For two hours, consulate staff will answer questions to the attendees and report everything related to obtaining residency, driver's license, health care and passports, among other matters.
From the Department of Residents it is reported that the British Embassy in Spain has made available more information about Brexit on the page, in the Living in Spain section www.gov.uk/guidance/living- in-spain, and through the Facebook page ?Brits in Spain?.
