Hello all

We used Babelia (funded by UK Gov to help Brits with their applications, for free).  Great service.  See below,...they are looking for input from anyone who was turned down:

Good evening,

In order for Asociación Babelia to raise with the Extranjería Office as well as with the British Government the issue of residency applications that have been denied to UK nationals, we need your help to disseminate our Survey on Residency Rejection for UK Nationals in Spain.

https://asociacionbabelia.org/residency-application-rejected/  

If your application has been rejected, we would be most grateful if you could complete this survey. If it is a friend's application, please forward this email to them.

The answers to this survey are entirely anonymous.

Thank you very much for your time.

Kind regards,

Brahim

Be sure you know to whom you disclose your personal data. If your application is rejected you have 2 weeks to appeal by means of a so called "recurso de reposicion" fending off aleged reasons of denial.

Hi Jill,

Many thanks for sharing.

I've heard of UK citizens being denied residency because, although they registered online prior to 31 December 2020, delays in obtaining Padron appointments have resulted in Padron certificates being dated after 1January 2021 and this is being used as an excuse to reject residency.  Similarly, people who have private health insurance dated after 1 January 2021.  This is illegal, according to the Withdrawal Agreement, but trying to have that debate with an immigration official may be another matter!

For anyone who would like to check the veracity of Babelia, please see this link to the UK Government's website, Gov.UK:

"UK Nationals Support Fund (UKNSF): applying for residency in EU or EFTA countries - GOV.UK"

 https://www.gov.uk/guidance/uk-nationals-support-fund-uknsf-applying-for-residency-in-eu-or-efta-countries#spain 

Kind regards,

Kim
