I’m in the process of selling my property in the UK to fund my new life in Spain.   I’m looking to rent to begin with.  Due to COVID & Brexit I have not visited in the last year. 

I know that due to Brexit I need to apply for a visa ( non working) as I am  retiring. 

What do I apply for 1st?

Banking, how long do I have to have an account to apply?

I also need to show proof of tenancy to apply for residency, how can I do this if I’m only allowed to stay 90 days? 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

No problem. Its a bit of a change to say the least! You can still have a holiday though, nose around. You can even do your NIE if you wanted to although I believe they issue one automatically with a successful NLV application. 

You could also open a bank account while on holiday, but bear in mind you might have to move your branch if you end up buying in a different place.

Use the guides, ask questions and tick off the things to do one by one and it's not so daunting. Good luck 👍

Hello Linda.

  As other posters have said, you need to start the process by applying to the Spanish Embassy in UK for a Non Lucrative Visa - if you intend to retire & not work

Here is a link for you to read that should answer most of your questions
