Who We Are

Helping ex-pats in and around Malaga for over 15 years.

Simple English Advice was started by Christina & Delroy, a married couple who are both British expats and understand the frustration of dealing with Spanish bureaucracy and even more so in Malaga. Our intention was to help people in a similar boat to ourselves navigate their way through the ordeal of settling in Malaga. We recently won the SME News Award for Best Global Relocation Support Services Experts 2022.

We have been living in Malaga for 25 years and for the past 15 years have helped many people through stressful tasks such as NIE/TIE/Residency, social security matters, car driving licence exchanges, car ownership transfers, importing a car into Malaga. Also, the remote worker visa, doctors, translations, property lawyer services etc.

Being bilingual means we can help you with most situations you will face in your relocation to Malaga or even if you’ve been here for years and are stressed out with the Brexit situation.

Spanish Red Tape

Anyone who has dealt with Spanish red tape knows how difficult and frustrating it can be. We help to take some of the stress out of everyday procedures like changing car ownership, importing vehicles, banking, social security etc.

If you search the internet for questions such as ‘how much does it cost to transfer ownership of a vehicle?‘, ‘How can you import a car into Malaga?‘, or, ‘Is it possible for UK citizens to get residency in Spain now?’ you will find conflicting information. What’s even more frustrating is when you speak to different people in different departments, they all say different things – sometimes even different people within the same department give conflicting answers!

This short video sums up Spanish red tape.

Kinda funny, but sadly true. Even Spanish people are frustrated by Spanish red tape. With over 25 years of experience dealing with Spanish bureacracy, Simple English Advice can help you to get things done quicker and easier. Don’t just take our word for it – read our 5-star reviews on Google or see what our customers say below.

Digital Nomad Visa

Digital nomad visas in Spain are now finally available. You can apply for them from your home country or get a fast-track application by applying in Spain. 

The Spanish remote worker visa is an excellent choice for non-EU nationals who want to live and work in Spain for up to five years. 

It is possible to include your spouse and children in the digital nomad visa application, allowing you to move to Spain with your whole family.

Another benefit is you can use this residency card to move freely throughout the EU. There are certain requirements that must be met which you can read about in our guide
