Why emigrate to Spain?


It is common for British citizens to travel to countries with a warm climate. Some even make the move permanent and emigrate. Spain is one of the most common destinations for both holiday-makers and expatriates. The creation and development of the European Union has made the process of moving to another European member state much easier than before.

However there are still rules and regulations attached to a move, and one should be aware of these if one is planning to emigrate. Spain is a monarchy, as is the UK, but as far as the legal system is concerned that is where the similarities end. Spain currently has a complicated system of laws which govern different areas of the country differently. Catalonia, for example, which many residents consider autonomous from the rest of Spain, has many different laws.

The same can be said of the UK, with Scotland and Northern Ireland having some autonomy, but the system operates in a different manner. Spain is also governed by civil law, rather than the common law which operates in England and Wales.

In spite of the differences, if you are planning to emigrate Spain may be a good destination. With many expatriates living in the country, warm weather and good food, it is not surprising that many people choose to relocate there. If you are planning to make the move you will benefit from a legal professional’s advice, as this will allow you to better understand the legal procedures and specific regulations which are associated with moving to Spain.
