My name’s Duane, and I am a fun Canadian guy who woke up one day and thought, “hey, wouldn’t it be cool to move to Spain?”
This website exists to document the (often painful) process of obtaining a long-term visa to stay in Spain, and all the little idiosyncrasies of life in Spain in general.
If you are interested in moving to Spain, I recommend you sign-up for the mailing list where I’ll update everyone when there’s a new post regarding visas or living in Spain. You can add yourself to the list here.
Second, I recommend joining the Facebook Group for this website – there you can ask questions and meet other people interested in moving to Spain.
I hope to interact with you all here, and maybe one day meet up on the coast in sunny Spain for some tapas (unless we’re up north, then we’ll have pinchos).
