Spain is a country that stands out for its wealth of landscapes, its culture and its gastronomy, as well as for its enviable climate, where in many areas we have sunshine more than 300 days a year.
But in addition, in cases where a foreigner seeks to establish his or her residence in Spain, he or she should know that there are many benefits that may be of interest to him or her when deciding to take up residence in another country:
- Benefits of Public Health:
Spain has one of the best public health systems in the world.
On one hand, we have a free public health care system that is available to all residents of the country, providing a more than exceptional service.
- Ease of obtaining a residence permit:
A positive facet of Spain is its Immigration Law. There are many options for citizens who plan to move to Spain to live and work. Getting a visa is really easy.
All you have to do is make sure you meet the requirements of the permit you wish to apply for, then getting a residence and work permit will not be a problem. Especially if you rely on specialist immigration lawyers to help you through the process.
- Number of residents increasing:
Meeting people who are in the same situation as you in the country is really easy. You will also have no problem finding groups of like-minded people in the world of real estate and investment for example, or fellow expats with similar tastes in leisure or sports activities.
- Possibility of buying a property in Spain:
In Spain there is a great offer of properties with a price that can be afforded. Due to the average income and exchange rates for example, for a UK citizen it can be an interesting option both to fix your residence and to invest in a property and operate it through vacation rentals.
But which is the best area in Spain to live in?
In Spain you can find big cities and European capitals like Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia, where you can enjoy an urban environment, to areas with leafy forests where the climate is colder all year round.
But, if your thing is to be able to enjoy the sun for a large part of the year, to practice your favourite sport in the open air and to be able to enjoy walks on the beach at any time of the year, there is nothing better than the Mediterranean area of Spain.
Areas such as the south of Alicante or the regions of Murcia and Almeria, are ideal for enjoying tranquillity and a relaxed life. They have some of the best beaches in the country, an enviable natural environment for practising sports and a typically Mediterranean cuisine.
And if you are a golf lover, the area has some of the best courses in Spain where you can enjoy a day out in the sun most of the year, with an average annual temperature of around 20 degrees.
