British Ambassador to Spain Hugh Elliott to meet expats at key Brexit meeting on Costa del Sol

'Spain WILL NOT be on UK 'Green' travel list before the end of July' says UK ambassador on a visit to Benidorm and the Costa Blanca

BRITAIN’S new ambassador to Spain has announced that he will visit the Costa del Sol for a key Brexit meeting.

As promised in an exclusive interview with the Olive Press last month, Hugh Elliot will meet with British expats in Malaga Province.

Elliott, who this year succeeded Simon Manley as the UK’s top mandarin in Madrid, will visit the town of Manilva,

The trip is the civil servant’s first official visit to the area, where he is set to appear on November 20 at Manilva’s fifth seminar on the UK’s departure from the EU.

HELPING HAND: British Ambassador to Spain Hugh Elliott will appear at a key meeting on the Costa del Sol next week to meet with British expats who may be concerned about Brexit

Elliott will be introduced as the event’s keynote speaker by local British politician Dean Tyler Shelton and Laura Lopez Collado, the Councillor for Foreign Residents.

It comes after Elliot’s predecessor Manley appeared at the fourth Manilva Brexit seminar earlier this year.

British Consul Charmaine Arbouin will also be present, along with the Mayors of Manilva, Casares and San Roque, together with Derek Langley, Regional Vice President of the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain, Alex Radford of My Lawyer in Spain and Joni Burnett, representative of the Colegio de Administradores de Fincas de Malaga.

Arbouin said: “The Embassy and Consulate are delighted to take part in this, the fifth seminar that Manilva has put on to keep its residents informed.

“As a result many UK nationals have already registered as residents and exchanged their driving licences, but we know that others still have questions about what action they need to take.

“In the meantime, I urge all UK nationals to stay up to date with the latest news by signing up for email alerts to the Living in Spain guide on gov.uk and following our Brits in Spain channel on Facebook.”
