    Hi everyone. My wife and I are planning to move from Morocco, which is where we presently reside, to live in Spain. We will be buying a property and plan to import our Moroccan car. What advice can anyone give us to get us up and running quickly, thus preventing us from running around in circles getting nowhere fast?
    Might there be a well used plan of action for new arrivals already, where a given set of rules and guidelines are already in place?
    Any information will be useful, especially as we know nothing about Spain and its current legislation, etc.
    Thanks. 8) 🙄

    Which part of Spain are you going to as you’ll need a good gestor to sort things out for you.

    Are you from the EU or will you need visas etc. as well?

    Rent first before buying!!!!!!!!!!!

    You could start by looking at this. Ignore the reference to Sotogrande these costs are applicable everywhere. Spain is now a high taxed society.

    You will be betting off selling your car in Morocco. Importing one is expensive unless you do it within a month of becoming a resident. However the fact you may not be an EU citizen will make life more difficult but not necessarily impossible.

    As Isme wisely says rent first, try many things and see if Spain will provide what you seek.

    I would not want to move to a country I know nothing about. And neither would I buy a house there, nor try and import my foreign car into such an unknown country.

    If you live anywhere near Tangier, it’s only a short hop across on the ferry, and you could at least ask around once you arrive on a few visits before taking any drastic steps.
