Spanish are off to the Americas

SPAIN may remain one of the most popular destinations for British expats, with unofficial estimates suggesting up to one million Brits now call it home.

But figures show an increasing number of Spanish nationals are choosing to leave, with almost 129,000 moving abroad in the last year alone.

South America is the most popular destination, with Argentina now home to 346,000 Spanish nationals, while Venezuela has 173,500.

Almost three quarters of Spanish expats over 65 are now based in the Americas, with many having fled there during the Spanish Civil War.

France was the most popular European destination, with 189,909 Spaniards now living there either permanently or long-term.

There are almost 65,000 Spaniards living in the UK, while 108,000 live in Germany.
