Extra meetings and hotline set up as council overwhelmed by Brits wanting official residency in Spain’s Costa Blanca

Orihuela Costa Town Hal

ORIHUELA City had to arrange for a second information session as they were overwhelmed by Brits wanting to apply for Spanish residencia.

Council officials welcomed the participants to an informative talk about residence permits ahead of the UK leaving the EU on December 31, held at the Orihuela Costa Town Hall.

The events were organized by the International Residents and Statistics forum, along with the Babelia Association (a non-profit organization promoting coexistence and equal opportunities within the Spanish society). 

“We had to do two information sessions to accommodate the more than 60 British residents interested in being able to process their residence permit,” explained Councillor for International Residents, Mariola Rocamora.

José Galiano, the Mayor of Statistics, explained, “due to restrictions by the COVID-19, the capacity for this information day was limited to guarantee social distancing.”

The extra demand for help and information has also forced the council to open a special hotline for Brits looking to obtain residency.
