Brits Living in Spain Statistics

There were 306,000 UK-born people with residency in Spain in 2015, according to the European statistics agency Eurostat, which used figures reported by Spanish authorities.

The number of UK citizens living in Spain in the same year was very similar, at almost 302,000, according to the same source.

The number of Brits living in Spain was higher before the financial crisis hit – more than 351,000 in 2008. If you take into account people who spend part of the year there, the figure is certainly higher, but there are no reliable, up-to-date statistics available on that.

Around one-third of British resident’s in Spain receive the UK state pension.
The UN estimates that there were 1.2 million UK-born people living in other EU countries, including Spain, in 2017. That figure is based on the 2015 census.
If you take into account UK-born people who spend part of the year in another EU country, the figure is certainly higher, although there are no up-to-date estimates of this.

    1. Hi William, Spain is currently in total shutdown all police stations are closed. Once they re-open we will be back in touch.

  1. Hi,

    I’m hoping to use your service to acquire NIE and residencia for myself and my husband. We have paid for our one-way flight to arrive in Lanzarote on September 2nd this year. We have secured a 12 month long-term let for an apartment in Costa Teguise, for which we have a signed contract and we both have work lined up. My husband is most likely to be autonomo, as he is an entertainer. I am to be a TEFL teacher so am expecting to be employed by the Academy, though due to lockdown, we await contracts. This may be impossible to answer at the moment but do you have any advice as when best to apply with yourselves?

    I’d appreciate any help you may be able to offer and am able to begin the process with yourselves as soon as possible to ensure as seamless a transition as possible upon arrival on the island.

    Many thanks and stay safe!
