Improve for Brits resident in Tenerife and the mainland

THE Drawback Agreement, which sets out how the UNITED KINGDOM leaves the EU, has now approved into UK law, and MEPs in Brussels, once  it was ratified on Wednesday, broke out in to a rendition of ‘ Auld Lang Syne’. It means the UK is leaving behind the EU with a deal these days (Friday, 31st January).

As David Sassoli, President from the European parliament, announced the result of the particular vote, with 621 in prefer to 49 against with thirteen abstentions, MEPs stood almost as you to sing the Scottish track.

The vote makes sure that the UK’ s 47 many years of membership of the EU will now finish at midnight central European time this evening, after years of troubled talks plus uncertainty.

This is good news for UK nationals citizen in Spain, including Tenerife and the some other Canary Islands, because the Withdrawal Agreement includes some really important protections for their legal rights:

*You will be able to still live and work here

*UK state pensioners can continue to have lifelong healthcare, provided that they remain living here. And also this applies to residents claiming an UNITED KINGDOM state pension

*Your UK state pension will continue to be uprated

*You will be able to swap your driving licence until the finish of 2020, without taking a hospital treatment, and your Spanish licence will be recognized in the UK when you visit.

These rights will be protected so long as you live in Spain, provided you are lawfully resident here by the end of 2020.

The Withdrawal Contract also provides a Transition Period this season, from 31st January until 31st December, during which time nothing will change pertaining to UK Nationals living here.

Charmaine Arbouin, UK consul to Andalucia, said: “ The particular approval of the Withdrawal Agreement is an extremely important step for these UK nationals.

“ It provides peace of mind on key rights, such as having the ability to continue to live and work right here, and for pensioners to have lifelong health care and uprated pensions.

“ Alongside those rights, you might have obligations, the main one being to make sure you happen to be registered, with a green, residency certification. This remains a valid document right after 31st January, and we will communicate any kind of details on future residency processes, after we have them. ”
