Balearic Islands- Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera


Balearic islands are the most popular tourist destination in Europe.

Mallorca’s varied scenery has made the island a dream place for film-makers and advertisers. You can see the variety for yourself through the windscreen of your hire car. Within 20 minutes, you can drive from the capital Palma to sensationally beautiful Valldemossa in the mountains to the north-west, the village where the composer Frederic Chopin lived with his sweetheart, the authoress George Sand.

Moving to Mallorca

Looking to enjoy a permanent or semi-permanent life in Spain? Then in an attempt to make your stay easier, we advise you to follow these general suggestions:
• Register on the Town Hall Census.
• Apply for an NIE number (identification number for foreigners). You will need it to buy a property, car, take out insurance, etc.
• Apply for your Residence Card.
• If your country has a reciprocal health agreement with Spain, apply for an E11 or E121 form. If not covered by the Social Security system, it is essential to take out a private medical plan.
• If your car has a foreign registration, remove it from Spain or change the registration to Spanish plates.
• Exchange your driving licence for a Spanish one.
• Pay every year the Town Hall taxes (IBI-Urbana Rates, Road Tax, etc.).
• Pay annually the Income Tax Declaration to the Taxation Office in your locality.
• If you are considering improvements to your house, either inside or outside, you must apply for a Building Licence.
• To open a business you must have an Opening Licence from the Town Hall and ensure your premises conform to all health, safety and legal requirements.
• If you own a property in Spain should have a Spanish will in addition to one in their country, to avoid possible complications.
• At the -moment, most of the local authorities and administration centres only speak Spanish. It is advisable therefore to be accompanied by someone who speaks fluent Spanish when you need to communicate with them.

Casa-Property Mallorca will be delighted to assist with all these requirements or to arrange your travel & accommodation on the islands.
