I can’t emphasise enough how important it is for British Expats who live here in Tenerife to make sure they are not only registered, but CORRECTLY registered on the Central Register of foreigners and have a Green Certificate of Residence Registration (Also wrongly called Residencia by some people) This includes obtaining DUPLICATES if there have been changes of address, or circumstances, or if the original has been lost or stolen. This also includes children who are not registered even if their parents are. You must also make sure that you are registered for Spansih State Health Care if you have the right to do so. This might include so far unregistered dependants of workers or self employed for example.  Getting this done is cruicial from 30 March 2019, whatever the outcome of the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration on the future relationship between the UK and EU.
