SIMON Manley, British Ambassador to Spain, issued a statement to the English-language media in Spain which serves British nationals living in the country.
“I am very aware from the questions that we have been getting that some Britons living in Spain are uncertain about what the Referendum result means for them.
“As the Prime Minister has said, there is no immediate change. You still have exactly the same rights. You can still live and work here, travel back and forth in the same way, and access Spanish healthcare and other public services just as before.
“There is no change to your residency status, nor any need for visas for travel to other EU countries, and you don’t need to change your passport. Your pension rights continue.
