Freedom of movement


Country Report: Freedom of movement Last updated: 30/05/24


Beneficiaries of international protection have freedom of movement around the entire Spanish territory. In practice, they generally reside in the area where the procedure has been conducted, unless they have family members or networks in other cities. As with asylum seekers, most refugees are accommodated in Andalucía, Madrid and Catalonia (see Reception Conditions: Freedom of Movement).
