Hi my name is Susan and have just joined.

I am looking to move somewhere in Torrevieja region by the end of this year.  I am looking for long term rental and also have 2 dogs.  I am looking for somewhere where ex-pats live, local to shops and amenities and also the beach.  So if  anyone could recommend anywhere. 

I would to know the requirements of living there and also I have read that you have to have a certain amount in your bank account to prove that you can live there. 

I am on my own and a Pensioner.

I would be grateful of any advice.

Hi Susan, 

If you are a UK passport holder.......

If you want to live in Spain permanently you will firstly need to apply for a non lucrative visa at the Spanish consulate while you are still living in the UK. The is a Spanish consulate in London or Manchester. You will need to meet the income and healthcare requirements. The income requirements are : you will need to prove that you have an annual income of €27,792.96 or a mixture of savings and income to a similar value. You will need full healthcare paid for a full year,  after which you can apply for the S1 healthcare cover which is paid for by the UK government. There will be a couple of other documents to submit but easily done. 

How to apply for a Non-Lucrative visa (NLV)

I hope you can meet the requirements and make the move to Spain.
