Following Brexit, British citizens no longer hold EU status, making them subject to regulations akin to other non-EU nationals when acquiring property in Galicia (Spain). This includes the requisite military permission in specified strategic areas across the country.
What is military permission?
For non-EU nationals intending to purchase, sell, or expand a property in strategic zones of Spain, military permission is obligatory. These areas, deemed of national importance for defense purposes by the Spanish Armed Forces, necessitate such clearance.
Military permission is mandatory for non-EU nationals in specific regions of Spain, including Galicia: the entire coast of the provinces of Pontevedra, Coruña, and Lugo.
For British nationals considering property acquisition in Spain, it's crucial to verify whether military permission is required for the specific property of interest. This can be done by reaching out to the Ministry of Defense or consulting with a property lawyer.
