Emigrate to Spain

Emigrate to Spain

Emigrate to Spain, WHAT? Why would you want to go to Spain of all places!

These were some of the shocking expressions we faced from people when they first heard about our intention to move to our new home country called Spain. For many Spain is not a well-known destination when people start exploring the possibilities of finding an alternative home, especially when things are starting to become hostile in their home country.

When one find articles covering the topic of emigration, countries of reference such as Canada, New Zealand, Panama, Portugal or Australia are normally being promoted in social media and news, with hardly any reference to Spain. When delving a bit deeper into facts, statistics of countries and what they offer their citizens, one would soon discover that to emigrate to Spain could be a very attractive alternative to the options normally advertised in the media and stated above.

Why would one emigrate to Spain?

When one first set out exploring different options of finding a new country to live in, one would soon discover that there is such a vast amount of information to consume, that attempting to makes ends meet of all these snippets of information is simply impossible. Below I have attempted to summarise some of the key aspects of Spain that we have determined important as to why one would choose Spain as a country to emigrate to.
