Spain Expat started as a bit of a hobby by an expatriate and his spanish wife while living in Seville in November of 2000. At that time the goal was to “help newcomers to Spain get oriented and to try to form a network of support among the expats.”
Since that fateful November, the ownership has changed hands (as of November 2004), but the goal remains the same.
Spain Expat now offers more information than ever before, and more almost every day. Spain Expat works with bloggers and writers living in Spain allowing them to share their experiences, knowledge and expertise with our thousands of daily visitors. Expat Information articles and How To articles are written specifically for the English-speaking immigrant experience, including how to decide where to live, how to find apartments and real estate, connecting to the Internet, learning Spanish, currency exchange and banking, health care & medical insurance, getting mobile phone service. starting a bisoemss., working & jobs in Spain, finding cheap flights, and one of our specialties: legal issues like visas and residency for expats.
A note on style: this site is written and maintained by expats from Canada, the US and the UK, so you'll see various stylistic differences in the way numbers and commas are used. Keep an open mind.
