Default Foreign Sources of Income as Proof of Financial Requirement - Residencia

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone has used a foreign income as proof of finances for Residencia.

I have a fairly well paid full time job in the UK which is remote that I will be continuing when we relocate. My salary is paid into a UK account but I will be sending it over to Spain.

Wondering if it is worth providing Payslips / P60s / Employment Contract etc. as part of Residencia application.

I believe I would probably meet the financial requirement without doing this as the general consensus seems to be showing 7-8000 Euros + in a Spanish bank account for 3 months and/or 800+ euros a month going in.

I was thinking as a minimum, I will transfer 8 - 10,000 Euros into a Spanish bank account once I manage to get one open. I will then transfer about £1500 a month off my salary to the Spanish account so they can see steady amounts going in.

Would this be enough or would I be better placed showing them the UK payslips and accounts as it would show significantly more coming is as I am in London so lots coming out currently for rent & bills every month.

Of course if I did provide these, I'm assuming I would need to get them translated by a traductor jurado. Would I also need to get them certified by apostille too?

The thing is, what is acceptable varies widely between different foreigner's offices, so you need to contact the one you will be submitting your request at about what they will accept. Or contact a local gestor.

There is a foreigner's office in Malaga, but you can also apply (at the moment) at local offices in Estepona, Ronda, Marbella, Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Antequera and Torre del Mar. Rules will differ among different offices within the same province.

Can you apply to the local offices?
In Alicante all the local offices are not processing UK citizens residency applications. They all have to go to Alicante city...(Cant apply in Benidorm anymore.)

At the moment you can in Malaga Province, but it may all change with the introduction of TIE for Britons.

Thats the fun thing about Spain. Things that should be the same all over the country, never are. Almost makes me want to find the office that gives out residency just by turning up with a small cake for the officer in charge.

You have not been able to make an appointment in Benidorm since the end of Jan..

I understand that no office is giving appointments next week to UK citizens, & that from the following week the new TIEs will be issued to new applicants.

That won't affect the OP though.

No, assuming the OP is a British citizen and is intending to move to Spain this year.
