Updated 14 March: After a series of votes this evening the House of Commons has rejected its chance to take control of the process and has instead approved a Government motion to request an extension from the EU until 30 June. Assuming they agree – and they may not but probably will – Brexit will not now happen on 29 March.

Updated 13 March: Continuing the series of events for UK nationals on Living in Spain and Brexit, British Consul Charmaine Arbouin, Vice-Consul Helen Keating and the consular team will be updating residents with the latest information on Brexit and what this means for UK nationals living in Spain on Friday 22 March in Golf del Sur. The event is taking place at the Rendezvous Restaurant in the Winter Gardens complex at 11:30am. There is no need to register beforehand.

The team will be covering a range of issues, including residency, registration, healthcare and pensions – so whether you have a specific question about living in Spain or simply want to know more about how Brexit might affect you, please come along and talk to them. Consul Charmaine Arbouin said: “As we move closer to 29 March, we will continue to do all we can to update citizens as and when we have more information. In the meantime, I continue to urge all UK nationals living in the Canaries to ensure you are correctly registered and to stay up to date with the latest news, by signing up for email alerts and visiting the Living in Spain guide on gov.uk and following our Brits in Spain social media channels, including on Facebook.”

These events are part of an ongoing programme of outreach and events being held across the country, details of which will be available on Brits in Spain social media channels and in English language media. Advice for UK citizens living in Spain can be found on gov.uk/living-in-spain. The Foreign Office also recommends following their Brits in Spain Facebook page, and to sign up for alerts from the gov.uk page to ensure you are getting accurate information.
