The exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union has generated a great demand for information

The Department of Foreigners offered an informative talk on the Brexit process yesterday and its first effects on the British population residing in our country. With the presence of the UK Consul in Málaga, Charmaine Arbouin, and a full house at the Tenencia de Alcaldía de La Cala, problems and concerns generated by the exit of the country from the European Union were put on the table. "For almost two years now, I have been hearing the same questions and there are no answers, people don't even know where to go, they are receiving poor information, they are all rumours, it is very difficult, especially for pensioners", said the president of the Brexpats in Spain association, Anne Hernández.

The meeting was attended with great interest by English residents, a very large community in Mijas, to listen to the different informative presentations with the aim of clarifying doubts, procedures and new requirements that must be presented since they left the European Union.

 
  • One of the main concerns of British residents is healthcare and visas

Through the Foreigners Department of the consistory, these conferences are organised to try to solve their questions. "We have prepared this informative talk for all British residents so that they have first-hand information, updated information. For weeks, they have been sending their doubts and concerns to the Department," said the Councillor for Foreigners of Mijas Town Hall, Arancha Lopez.

British residents are concerned about healthcare, visas or whether they will be able to vote in elections, at one point, they even proposed dual nationality, trying to find solutions. Lawyers and consular representatives meet with them periodically organised by the association Brexpast in Spain, which was born in Mijas to help in this complex situation, and which already has thousands of members.
