3 Tips for families to relocate to Barcelona with ease
From a family/pet friendly relocation ❤️
Tip n. 1
Plan ahead: Start planning your relocation as early as possible to ensure a smooth transition. This includes researching housing options, schools, healthcare providers, and other essential services. Consider working with a relocation company, such as Salvador & Co, to help you navigate the process and provide personalized guidance.
Understand the visa requirements: Make sure you understand the visa requirements for your family's situation.
For example, if you're applying for a non-lucrative visa, you'll need to provide proof of financial means to support yourself and your family while living in Spain. The application process can be lengthy, and tedious so plan accordingly.
Tip n. 2
Learn the language: While many people in Barcelona speak English, it's still a good idea to learn some Spanish and a few words in Catalan to help you and your family integrate into the local community.
It has been Salvador and Co's experience that the more you can speak with the locals, the more you can enjoy your stay.
Start with the
• App Duolingo, and spend from 5 minutes a day
• Listen to a Spanish song and look for the lyrics.
• Watch a Netflix series in Spanish with subtitles in English.
Those are FUN ways to start.
Remember that children will pick up the language super fast!!!!!
Tip n. 3
Research neighborhoods: Barcelona is a large and diverse city, so it's important to research the different neighborhoods before choosing where to live. Some popular family-friendly neighborhoods include Sarria-Sant Gervasi, the beauty of Gaudi in Eixample, the Mediterranean in Poble Nou, Catalans of Gracia, or Les Corts.
