Upsticks to Spain

Taking the stress out of Spanish Residency Applications & Car Registration

Spanish Residency & Support

If you’re already resident in Spain, let us help resolve any issues with your documentation. With the end of the Transition Period, from 1st January 2021 British citizens are considered third country nationals and have to abide by General immigration rules. Ask us about our post-Brexit residency packages for UK passport holders.

(vehicles from the UK could be subject to further taxes from the 1st of January 2021)

Why should you choose Upsticks for your Spanish Residency and Car Registration

“Traditional agents have charged too much and under delivered.

I moved to Spain nearly 21 years ago and understand the process and stress this can cause.

I set up Upsticks to help people who want to start a life in Spain and avoid the mistakes I made.”

Let us help you!
By your side from begining to the end of the process 100%

We don’t agree to take on any cases that we don’t believe we can complete. We fully assess each case and qualify any possible objections by immigration. So, if we take on your case, you will know exactly where you stand and what needs to be done for it to be successful.

Knowledge & Experience

Our founder arranged his own residency during his move to Spain when he was 21. Now 43, Chris has bolstered his life experience of the transition with 20 years of helping others to do the same, and has been working full time in the role for the last 10 years. His knowledge of the ins and outs of getting Spanish residency is second to none.

Transparency & Pricing

Upsticks provide all our customers with a clear explanation of exactly what our service entails, how we deliver that service and our pricing structure.

There are always fees associated with both residency and registering your car in Spain, and while we can’t control these, we provide our services at a fixed fee so that you know what to expect.


You will have an appointed representative from our team by your side every step of the way; from the first contact you have with us right through to the day you receive your residency card. You’ll be provided with advice throughout (including how to prepare for the appointment itself) as well as guidance regarding what you’ll need to do from that point on.
