Your Decision is Made… the Next Key Steps

So your mind's made up. You have decided to join the thousands of people who have started a new life in Spain. 

Once you actually make the decision and go from dreaming about it to thinking about the practicalities, it can become a little overwhelming.  Moving house is customarily a stressful experience, and when you are moving abroad it can be doubly daunting – unless you are well prepared.

Even once you have tied up all the loose ends in your home country, there are bound to be more questions about the actual moving arrangements – and your arrival in Spain.

To help you avoid any stressful moments, we've put together a concise, comprehensive and authoritative guide covering every contingency and all the boxes you need to tick – to help you get off to the best possible start. The VIVA team is also always available to answer any further questions you might have.
