Nothing Was Too Much Trouble

I would like to thank Irina at Malaga Expats Consulting for helping my husband and I to get our ITE I would highly recommend their services very professional....nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely use them again should we need too in the future Thank you once again. Denise Blackadder, Alhaurin el Grande, April 2021

Great Service and Great Value for Money

Irina is a really helpful and extremely knowledgeable in Spanish bureaucracy and documentation. She helped me to untangle my Spanish driving licence issue and did the application paperwork for me. She then gave me full detailed instructions on how to finalise it myself at DGT trafico. All done with no issues whatsoever. Great service and great value for money. Highly recommended.

Organisation, Experience and Infinite Patience

I found Malaga Expat Consulting through an online search. When I came across the MEC website I felt I'd found what I was looking for. What I didn't understand until later was just how much Irina's organisation, experience and infinite patience would help me in my transition to living in Málaga. In the 3 months I have known Irina she has facilitated my residence permit; supported me though changing my driving licence; arranged for an introduction to an accountant; met with me to register at my local townhall and again for my local doctor; gave advice when I was unsure about areas to live in; checked my rental contract... and she has done much of this twice as I changed my address within a few weeks of arriving. I am someone with a beginner's level of Spanish, an aversion to forms and a tendency to procrasinate when faced with administrative tasks. Quite simply, Malaga Expat Consulting has enabled me to enjoy the experience of moving to a new country and to feel safe that the foundations for my new life are in place.
