Hi I'm Natalie. I currently live in the USA with my husband and 2 kids. I am a uk passport holder and my kids and husband both hold usa passports. My mother and sister both live in Spain and we are looking into moving over there. I am just trying to find out what visa will be required? What are the requirements as I have uk passport that allows me to live and work in EU. My husband however is us citizen and so are both my kids. Any help would be very much appreciated.

:welcome:

I've moved your question to a thread of its own

It's relatively straightforward, as long as you can meet financial & healthcare requirements

basically you can come to Spain, & your husband & children can arrive with visitor / Schengen visas

then within 90 days, you have to register as resident , fulfilling the financial & healthcare requirements, & your family then apply for residency as your family

I'm not sure exactly what the financial requirements would be, but if you were on your own, without them, as an EU citizen you'd need at least 600€+ a month &/or 6000€+ in the bank here, plus private healthcare

Thanks for your help. What documents will I need to bring to spain to get residency

I find in the USA at least her in Florida it is very expensive to live, crazy health insurance prices. Food very expensive. Childcare very expensive. In uk, I lived there for 21 years, it's ok. Still find it
More expensive.
Spain however childcare is very reasonable, food is more reasonable, even private health insurance is cheaper. 75 euros a month compared to 450 I have to pay in usa. Childcare in USA 200 a week. Spain 200 a month.
Also my mum and sister live in Spain already. So I have done my research on previous trips.
