Lobby to negotiate equal visa rights for UK citizens with property in EU area

24th March 2021

We all have family and friends that have a second home within the European Union. At the moment, as you no doubt already know, British Citizens who do not have permanent residence in the respective european country where they have their second home, can no longer stay there for more than 90 days in any 180.

A petition has been started to try and change this. Europen citizens are allowed at the moment to stay in Great Britain a total of 180 days. It would obviously help boost the economy of Spain, if these second home owners could stay longer here, in their second homes.

Below is a link to the petition.

I am also in contact with our representative in the Spanish Central Government, César Sanchez, investigating what would be necessary to allow British Citizens, with second homes here to have the same rights as the Norwegians, Swedish and Swiss, whose countries are also not part of the Shengen agreement.

Please be so kind as to pass the petition on to your family, friends and association members.

Renewing your Padrón

7th February 2021

If you are a resident in Spain you should renew your Padrón (Municipal Register) every five years. The Padrón Office of the Calpe Town Hall will send you a letter reminding you to do so.

Due to the restrictions caused by the Pandemic, it is essential that you make an appointment before going to the Town Hall.

You will be attended to by personnel in the OAC (Office for Attention to Citizens). The office is on the ground floor of the Town Hall. You can make an appointment through the Municipal website, or by calling any of the following phone numbers:
687 648 761
687 648 757
687 648 752

The OAC office is very very busy at the moment. If you have been unable to make an appointment through the website, I advise you to try calling the numbers after lunchtime.
