“A great place to start your journey”

“We first used Where Can I Live to find the right help for my daughter, who needed an internship visa for Spain. They put us onto their Spanish immigration partner, who has been great despite the Spanish system being so slow!

I’ve also subsequently had the benefit of Alastair’s wide experience when it comes to the options for UK passport holders and Golden Visas, which was incredibly useful.

“The best resource we found for relocation advice”

The resources from were fantastic. We received scheduled meetings and got answers to our questions. Follow-up with tax professionals was easy. Health care quotes were not only fast but MUCH cheaper than the US/UK “global” companies we received quotes from.

We went through multiple channels to get help before we found their site – several rental and real estate agents, searching on our own, and going through other relocation services. All of them were a letdown. Most of the time, we simply didn’t receive a response. So glad we found such a good resource, it was a massive stress relief.

Hi, we are Alastair & Alison.

We are serial Expats and have lived in six countries on four continents. We moved from South Africa to London in our 20s, to Sydney by the time we were 30, and to Spain with a young child in our 40s. Alison has also lived in Zimbabwe and Hong Kong.

Move abroad to Spain

Where Can I Live was born from our passion for experiencing different cultures worldwide. We wanted to help people to experience the richness of life abroad that we have been so fortunate to experience ourselves.

We got the idea for Where Can I Live while living in Spain as Brexit happened. Alison, a UK passport holder, realized she could get an Irish passport and stay an EU citizen. It was a big relief as a pathway to continue our European adventure.

We wondered how many others did not realize they could get citizenship of a country. We also learned that many didn´t know which visas they could get around the world. Helping people discover these fantastic opportunities has been an absolute pleasure.

Today, you will find even more information, services, and unique tools that help you to identify Where You Can Live.
