RESIDENCIA permits are no longer needed for the vast majority of the 35'000 EU citizens living in the Balearics. As of yesterday, European Union citizens employed or self-employed in the Balearics no longer need to either apply for or renew a residence permit nor do students or pensioners who receive their pension from the Spanish social services. In an official communique issued by the Balearic central government representative's office in Palma, it was confirmed that the change to the law was approved by the cabinet under Royal Decree 178/2003 on February 14. The change to the law does not apply to European Union family members who are of non-European Union nationality.
