I am a US citizen marrying a Spanish Citizen in the US and wanting to move to Spain after.

I would like some help on the Ins-and-Outs of this. Here are some details:

  • I don't need to work in Spain. I work for a US company that allows me to work from anywhere.
  • I am currently in Spain on a tourist visa which will run out at the end of March.
  • I would like to return to Spain ASAP after our wedding in the US which is at the beginning of April.
  • He is not trying to get US citizenship.

My questions:
  • Is what I'm proposing to do more difficult then I think?
  • Am I going to be able to return to Spain now that I'm married to a Spanish natural or is there month of paperwork I have to undergo before this can happen?
  • Since we are getting married regardless, would it be easier to get married in Spain before my visa runs out?

Thank you all for any information you can give! I will also continue to search the site for relevant information.

:welcome:

I see you have already asked on the thread I would have pointed you to - yes it's possible :D

as your visa is about to run out you'd be better getting married in the US imo

She doesn't need a visa once she is married, if the law hasn't changed again. However, getting married before her visa expires, as said, could be a problem.
