Default Work permits after March 2019

I am presently on holiday in Tenerife. While having a haircut a young women, Scottish from Edinburgh (I was eavesdropping) was being interviewed for a hairdressing job. It suddenly struck me that after March 2019 no young people will be able to simply hop on a plane to the sun to work in a bar, sing in a club, a resteraunt or as a hairdresser without a work permit. How difficult will it be to get a work permit for these type of jobs?
What other jobs do young Brits presently do in Spain

If the agreement finally is to "not disrupt the current rights of EU nationals in the UK and UK national sin the EU" as has been reported, there should be little change in the freedom of movement and rights to work so no work permit should be required, but Britain will want to apply that to EU nationals arriving in the UK so the EU will obviously apply the reciprocal approach.

Therefore, if, the final agreement is that this "no disruption" agreement finally only applies to UK nationals already living in Spain in March 2019, then those that want to come afterwards will simply have to apply for visas and work permits like all other non-EU nationals do now. That is what the UK voted for after all.

By the way, its not only "young" people who work in Spain! Some of us "late-middle agers" work here too!

You are quite right although I was thinking of young(er) people wanting to see the world. Forgive me.

Well, they can still see the world no? But it will just be like visiting any other non EU country is now. How many young people travel the world working in each country like USA, Australia etc?

Sorry if I am being obstinate...

Wanting to see the world, working in Brit bars in Benidorm. Lot more world out there, many go working in Australia, South America etc. Some have even managed to work their way all around the world and many British people worked in Spain before they joined the EU.

This for me is potentially the saddest part of what might happen. Being able to relocate anywhere in Europe for 6 months, a year, forever without having to get visas, pass tests or whatever the new system is.

For me I came here 6 years ago, rented a house for 6 months got an internet connection and that was it. I couldn't do that anywhere outside Europe that I know of. Certainly not in Australia or NZ (my first choices).

So many people I know do the same. Some time in Germany, then Italy, then here without a worry about being thrown out or fined for not having some visa or permit.

My 21 year old is currently in Switzerland working as an au pair for a year, to perfect her German (yes we know it's a bit different to the 'German' German she studied). Previously she was in Italy, to learn Italian.

She's doing this now, a) because she's young & b) because she probably won't be able to do it so easily after Brexit.

We're also very aware that she can't leave Spain for 2 years without losing her permanent resident status, so she spends a few months back in Spain between each move.

I don't agree with that.

For me, the saddest part is the "hidden" effects of Brexit, the ones which people didn't know about, weren't told about, or simply could not be understood and so wer swept under the proverbial carpet.

The freedom of movement issue was however one of the main, publically debated issues in the whole charade. They knew exactly what they were voting for and made a choice.

If anyone in the UK thought that they would be able to restrict movement of EU nationals into the UK without a reciprocal restriction imposed in the EU, then they were, frankly, stupid.

I would just point out that we were not subject to the priority given to EU citizens and consequently employers did not have to demonstrate that no suitable EU citizens were available for the job. That makes a huge difference. Also, young Brits (and others) often take advantage of working holiday visas etc in relevant countries. Of course, there is a possibility that Spain and the UK might reach agreement on WHVs, although I can't see why they would.

Is it really a case of hopping on a plane right now?

I thought all that changed in 2012 when Spain introduced stricter residency rules, often requiring proof of income, etc.
