How do we go about changing our UK work visas to Spanish residency visas. I have an NIE number, a house, bank account etc already. Our kids are enrolled in an international school in Casteldefells, close to Barcelona and will start in September this year. All that remains is to finalize the paperwork before we move in August. I am South African with UK ancestry visa. Both of our children are US citizens with UK visas. My husband is a US citizen but was not a part of the UK visa process because of his frequent travel. We are looking for assistance to sort out the necessary paperwork etc. to obtain the proper Spanish visas

I am an spanish solicitor and I am here to help you, as long as you let me and you need.
You need to contact with the foreing office in Barcelona
And they will see the visa you got in UK in order to change it for a permanent residence and work visa here in Spain
As long as you got the permanent visa in UK its valid here in Spain once you got the chance in the foreing office
All the doubts you got, could be answered, free call dialing 060 into Spain option 0
I will be here if you need more info about the diferent steps you have to make to manage the visas you need
Do you know of a service provider that could do this for us? Does it need to be done from the UK or can we dot his when we get to Spain?
I recomend to contact with Saurina Delgado solicitors
They are specilist in foreing matters in Barcelona and I am sure you will get plenty satisfation with they
You have to manage here in Spain even when probably you will need documents from UK foreing office
I called these morning to 060 in order to get the information for you and they told me that you have to prove the permanent visa in UK and then manage here in Spain
