New residency requirements for applications made in the UK consulates

Depending upon both the type of residency which is applied for in Spain and from where the application itself is being made, the residency application requirements change.

There are however some general requirements which are requested on every type of residency from wherever it is being applied for, some of which are; Criminal record report, Passport valid for a minimum of 6 months and Valid health insurance.

With this is mind we would like to notify to our clients that Spanish residency applications being made from the United Kingdom now require a health insurance policy which is valid for a minimum of 15 months at the point of residency application.

This is important to know because the majority of insurance firms will automatically provide health cover for a 12 month period as their standard product.

As a legal firm with over 17 years’ experience in the residency sector, we collaborate with many types of companies who offer services which accompany the Spanish residency application, including health insurance companies who can offer a plan which will cover the minimum requirement of 15 months.
