Yes, he thought he was being clever, saying he was in Kiribati, but now the Spanish authorities, insist on his having a visa to come to Spain. The visa allocation for the Kiribati trip to Spain is limited to only 3 per annum, and the Irish think he is an English spy so won't let him go back there, either.

Kiribati is where the Rabbit claims he has his burrow. However, another fact influencing whether Eire will allow him back or Spain allow him in, is Kiribati and, in particular Kiritimati, or Christmas Island, is a Pacific Ocean raised coral atoll in the northern Line Islands. It is part of the Republic of Kiribati. It achieved fame/notoriety in the 1950s and 1960s as the place where nuclear weapons were tested and, as a result, anyone coming from there triggers the radiation sensors at airports.

Is this still applicable as the article was written in Feb prior to a March 29th Brexit? Has there been any update or change?

Brexit hasn't happened yet - so there's no change until/unless it does.

Default No, but...

I'm an American and have had permanent residency (now called "larga duración") for quite some time. My understanding is that with legal residency in one EU country you not only can travel to other EU countries, you can also work in them.

That's only true if you hold an EU Blue Card.

The normal residency card issued in Spain is only valid in Spain.

Yes and no, I think.

I believe the EU Blue card allows for the right to work in other countries from the start.

I should have made clear that it's long term residents of one country who have the right to work in other countries:

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-cont...lex:32003L0109
"1. A long-term resident shall acquire the right to reside in the territory of Member States other than the one which granted him/her the long-term residence status, for a period exceeding three months, provided that the conditions set out in this chapter are met.

"2. A long-term resident may reside in a second Member State on the following grounds:

"(a) exercise of an economic activity in an employed or self-employed capacity;

"(b) pursuit of studies or vocational training;

"(c) other purposes.

"3. In cases of an economic activity in an employed or self-employed capacity referred to in paragraph 2(a), Member States may examine the situation of their labour market and apply their national procedures regarding the requirements for, respectively, filling a vacancy, or for exercising such activities.

"For reasons of labour market policy, Member States may give preference to Union citizens, to third-country nationals, when provided for by Community legislation, as well as to third-country nationals who reside legally and receive unemployment benefits in the Member State concerned."
And a few countries are excluded from the directive, i.e., Denmark, Ireland and (surprise, surprise) the UK.

I've never tried it myself, but have thought about it. But then I realize, I'd really rather live in Spain.

Also, on a similar note, if one is a legal resident in Spain for 10 years, then it's possible to apply for Spanish citizenship
