    Given it's April fools day...

    The most ferocious media supporter of Brexit has got the hump...

    Britons FURIOUS as expats stopped from returning to Spain after rule change - 'Pathetic!'

    "EXPATS have been forced to leave Spain or barred from returning following post-Brexit rule changes, which has sparked fury among readers "

    The same readers who of course wanted to 'take back control'...

    Funny how they don't like it when the EU applies the 'third country' rules as was expected!

    :LOL:

  3. But it isn't to do with brexit, it's to do with non essential travel. They should have been fined when they got back to the UK too. Sloppy reporting by the express as usual.

    Nope...

    And it's reported in many other media places also...

    Spotted the date?

    Of course it's April Fools day, but it's also the first day past the three month post brexit deadline...

    And no 'TIE cards', no entry!

    So you believe what you read in certain newspapers when it suits you then mock others for quoting from the same newspapers.
    Make your mind up love.
     
  6. Yep, and they say the same, if you don't have residencia, then you're automatically turned back as your journey is obviously non essential.

    But of course if the UK were still in the EU then said 'residencia' wouldn't have been turned back...

    As they say, turkeys voting for christmas! :rolleyes:

    Against what?

    But as always you wish to steer away from the topic...

    Why is that?

    It does appear there are some particularly dumb expats voting for Brexit and not bothering to register for residency. They only had 4.5 years!

    They had about three months in some cases. I understand that Spain has not extended the period for registrations in the same way that France has.
    The final agreement on reciprocal residential criteria, etc was not agreed until late 2020.
