As many of you know, Asociación Babelia has been granted funding by the UK Government to provide support to UK nationals who may struggle to complete administrative procedures connected to residency during the transition period following the departure of the UK from the EU.
Our objective is to provide information and guidance in the Comunitat Valenciana (Alicante, Valencia and Castellon) about the residency process for those of you who don’t have the so-called “green certificate”. In certain cases, we have been submitting applications directly to the Immigration Office (Extranjería) on behalf of those of you physically present in Spain and who have faced difficulties in doing this yourselves; essentially the elderly, people with disabilities or those who couldn’t afford to hire a private lawyer or gestor. These categories constitute the main target population of this project and our main focus as a non-profit organisation.
Asociación Babelia will still be receiving new enquiries regarding residency applications until Sunday the 20th of December 2020. After this date, we will no longer be able to assist new applicants until the 11th of January 2021 (Please note that this doesn’t mean that we will necessarily be able to submit an application on your behalf before the end of the year). Also, please be aware that our association is dealing with hundreds of different enquiries at the moment and so it may take us some time to get back to you.
