This group is for Americans who have a long term interest in being in Spain. The idea is to share information on immigration, residency, starting a business, getting a drivers license, buying property, etc. --- all the things you do when you settle in a place. This is more targeted at people who have been in Spain for awhile, rather than those just arriving. Please invite any North Americans you know who are in this situation! Navigating Spanish bureaucracy is tricky - we can use each others' knowledge and support!
