Hi - can I get a Blue Badge for mobility impaired people from the Spanish government and how do I go about it? We are British citizens and have one for use in Uk. We own a property in Spain but as yet have not purchased a car, we are primarily based in UK. Many thanks for any help and advise you can offer.

...can offer.

You will need to start with a doctors report of all the disability you have and they will decide after more examinations what level of disability they think you have. All the reports and examination results will go in and it could take years for them to decide if you will get a badge or not.

Here is some information:

Thank you very much for your information, unfortunately we are not (yet) resident in Spain and I think our UK Blue Badge is not eligible in Spain.

No the UK blue badge is not legal in Spain.

Thank you, but I think it’s more to do with the UK leaving EU that our Blue Badges are no 

longer legal…
