An update on my application for residency!

I have been refused as I didn’t have medical insurance in 2020?!

Can anyone advise where I can go from here.

Hi

You will have to get a Gestor or Solicitor to assist you in this respect. Sorry can not give you more advice

If it was me I would take advice from a Spanish lawyer. I used one to process my residency application, good value as well, and they know all the in's and outs. This is the one I used below and they are very good

Thank you for this information.  

Hi Remy 

Did you have any luck with the renewal 

I also need advise as my renewal application 

is awaiting certificate of insurance for the year 30/9/22-30/9/23 

I had insurance the year before which ended on 30/9/22 the reason I  cancelled is because I had medical insurance in the country I worked in 

The lawyer in spain is insisting that my application will get rejected if I don’t produce a certificate for that year 

The insurance I had while working out of Spain was a local insurance 

Any advise please 

Thank you

Hello.  I didn’t renew as it was my first application. Surely if you were out of the country you shouldn’t need medical in Spain.     Surely you can demonstrate this?    The only thing is to speak to either the solicitor or get another one who is able to show you were out of Spain working.   Having said all that what appears to be logical to us doesn’t always translate in Spanish.    Please let me know how you get on.

Thank you so much for your prompt response 

I tried so hard with the lawyer .

I was told that they are  reputable 

I explained to her 

She is insisting that the rule is must of having either an insurance in Spain or producing the certificate from the country I work in which is fully inclusive of international cover 

She is not even negotiating this point 

So unfair as we only visited spain two weeks and we never went to any medical need 

The insurance policy from the Country I worked in is fully covered but locally to the country and has no international cover 

Is this point negotiable with the immigration as it is such a shame that we get our application rejected for this reason 

I wonder if you are aware of any lawyer who may deal with this point with success 

Or similar situation and solutions 

Thank you

I know it just seems so silly.  I would try another lawyer definitely.  Not sure why you would need international cover if you were in that country working.   I don’t know any one I could recommend.    Have you tried facebook.   I don’t use but I believe there’s a lot of good recommendations on there.   Please let me know how you get on.

I just consulted with another recommended lawyer 

He confirmed that for the golden residency the insurance in spain is a must even if you work overseas unless you stay over 6 months in spain 

My only solution is to present a certificate of insurance for that year. I even offered to pay the premium for that year. But unsuccessful 

It seems that the only option is to re apply with a fresh application
