      Hello Joanne,

      I didn’t hear about such a way, but I can confirm 99% sure that will not work, I am afraid.

    Hi,
    I am a British passport holder who has permanent right of residence in France (with a Carte de Sejour en Permanence) where my (French) wife and I live.
    We want to go to Spain during the winter, and plan to go by car. Given that there are no border controls between France and Spain, what do I have to do on arrival? Presumably if I do not register my arrival and am subsequently controlled by the Guardia Civil, in the absence of any evidence of the date of my arrival, they might consider me to be in the country illegally.
    How would this affect my 90/180 day status on a subsequent visit in early summer?

      Hello John,
      If you are a permanent resident in France, you are allowed to move around Spain and any other EU country, according to the EU freedom of movement and residence directive. And you do not have to do anything on arrival. However, you will only be allowed to stay in Spain for 90 consecutive days. In fact, if you stay out of France for more than 180 consecutive days, you may lose your permanent right of residence.
      Regards,
      Javier R.
