We used Chris and his team at Upsticks to get our NLV and we can't thank them enough. Very helpful and informative, quick to respond to emails and any questions we had. Also made the necessary appointments for us and accompanied us to register for our T.I.E. Would highly recommend to anyone hoping to move to Spain.

Upsticks are definitely the people to instruct to organise your post Brexit residency visa. They provided an end to end service (most don’t) organising appointments and helping to tie up the documentation requirement of the Spanish consulate in London…This was by far the most complicated and frustrating part of the process and NOT for the faint hearted…and then organise and attend the various appointments in Spain. I would not have wanted to self manage this as it’s complicated and subject to interpretation despite looking straight forward in theory. Our application was quite simply hard work particularly UK side. Chris and the team were always on hand, professional, supportive and patient. The fee was very reasonable and despite the added complexity we faced with one of us initially refused, there was never any attempt to leverage it. They were also able to assist with some great contacts for insurance and medical references. I have no hesitation in fully recommending their services.

Can highly recommend the team at Upsticks, they were recommended to me and didn´t disappoint. Residency sorted with minimum fuss and worth every penny. Having heard other stories of people being turned down for various reasons I would advise using Chris and the team who know how the system works. Thanks Upsticks.......

Knowledge & Experience

Our founder arranged his own residency during his move to Spain when he was 21. Now 45, 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 12 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.
