Many expats dream of moving to Spain, retiring in the warm Costa del Sol, watching traditional flamenco performances in Seville and Grenada, or enjoying the cosmopolitan ambience of Madrid. Wherever the destination, expats will have to plan for their move to Spain, and relocation companies are a good place to start.
Will an expat need a visa or work permit? How easy is it to get the tax identification number – the NIE (Número de Identidad de Extranjero)? Where can newcomers find the best tortilla de patatas in Spain? Any question, big or small, can be answered by a relocation business. These firms specialise in mobility and relocation services for companies and individuals, offering pre-departure support, neighbourhood orientation, accommodation searches and lease negotiations. For families with children, relocation firms offer lists of recommended schools in Spain and can offer support with registration and visits.
Here is a list of local and international relocation companies that support a range of expat needs.
