The British Consul will be offering UK nationals the opportunity to ask questions about Brexit in Algorfa, Alicante on 17th January.

Continuing the series of events for UK nationals on Living in Spain and Brexit, British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris and her team will be updating residents with the latest information on Brexit and what this means for UK nationals living in Spain.

The event will be take place at La Finca hotel, Carretera Algorfa-Los Montesinos, km 3 at 12:30pm.

Over two thousand people attended the events before Christmas, having their questions answered on topics including residency, healthcare and tax. A range of experts, charities and neighbourhood support groups are represented at each event, forming a kind of “surgery” to make sure everyone gets the chance to ask their question to the right person.

Participants can still attend the event even if they are not Algorfa residents.

Specific questions regarding the padron should be asked at local events if possible.

British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris said: “Everyone who wants to speak to one of us individually will have the opportunity to do so. If you haven’t yet been to one of the events and are unclear about your situation regarding residency in Spain or how your situation in Spain might change after Brexit, please do come along to one of the remaining dates.”

These events are part of an ongoing programme of outreach and events being held across the country, details of which will be available on the Brits in Spain social media channels and in English language media.
