British residents in Spain after Brexit: documentation and processes

 

The information is different depending on whether they were already residents (that is, they already had a Union Citizen Registration Certificate) before 7/6/2020. If yes, your case is A) below. If not, see case B)

 
CASE A) - ALREADY RESIDENTS BEFORE 6/7/2020

British citizens who were already resident in Spain before 06/07/2020 are not obliged to make any changes although, voluntarily, they can request the issuance of a new residence document for British citizens, consisting of the issuance of an identity card of a foreigner. If you wish to request this new document, the procedure is carried out at a Police Station, not at the Immigration Office to which you direct your inquiry.

Consequently, for British citizens who hold a registration certificate, the certificate can be exchanged at the Police Station and you must reserve an appointment in advance for the POLICE-EXP process.

Whether the management requires the payment of a fee is a question that can only be resolved by the police themselves. The website of the police with the information on the procedures of its competence is:

CASE B) - NON-RESIDENTS BEFORE 6/7/2020

If you are not resident in Spain before 6/7/2020 (that is, if you do not have a Union Citizen Registration Certificate), you must request your residence document from the Barcelona Immigration Office, if you set your address in this province. For this procedure, you can consult the information on the documentation to be provided and the appointment request procedure in the following document:
