Obtaining Residency in Spain from another country outside the EU

Postby pensure1988 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 12:17 am

Please can anyone tell me the requirements for say someone coming to live in Spain from South Africa permanently. My Friend said " Spain would not finalise residency unless I had emigrated from SA" . Is this statement true as I came to Spain in 2008 and had not yet emigrated from my original Country of residence, also being South Africa and I was registered in the Foreign Residents Register without any problems. I only emigrated in 2013 from South Africa.

Thank You

David

I am an Eu passport holder but was living in Asia prior to moving to Spain. I still hold my residency card for the other country and renewed it in December as I still spend a few months per year there.

The only point where my previous residency was noted was on the padron at the town hall. They asked me where I had moved from (i.e. where in Spain, when I said outside Spain they just noted the country) and it was written on the Padron cert (including any subsequent certs I need issued). The actually residency registration at the Policia Nacional nobody asked me where I was coming from, they were just bothered whether I had the right to live here (EU passport, income, healthcare).

Having said all of the above I cannot answer for a non EU passport holder
