Tanemera, I totally agree with you, even people who do not own property but want to winter in a warmer climate & are prepaired to pay for 5 or 6 months rental are losing their human rights of choice, although 3 months is fine for us.

Being here at the moment the restaurants are operating on about 50% large hotels are closed mainly because the lack of British tourists, I would imagine they will have a few things to say to the Spanish government about this crazy Schengen rule the money they must be losing.

Knowing how thick the Americans are they must think the ROI is part of their country

My understanding is that the non-lucrative visa leads to a residential visa with the associated requirement to spend a minimum of 182 days per year in Spain, or loose your visa.  Once resident you become liable for tax in Spain on your worldwide income and theoretically could loose your rights to the UK NHS.  I believe it is the same with the "Golden" visa.

There is nothing to stop the Canary Islands, Spain or any other Shengen member country electing to allow UK citizens who own property in that country from extending the visit allowance to 6 months. In fact, it can be argued that property owners who pay property tax are currently being denied the right to enjoy their property, which contravenes their human rights.

Call me an optimist, but I believe this will happen after the pandemic is under control and more tourist-related businesses become aware of the loss of income from UK long-term tourists.

I'm kind of finding it hard to believe some subjects discussed on this site. An acquaintance of mine's parents travelled over to Bend, Oregon about a month ago, and they had no trouble getting there and back from the ROI, so, if they could travel over and back to the USA then why wouldn't you be able to? Okay, both of them had been fully vaccinated, so, may be that was the reason they were able to travel without any problems?

Due to the Covid pandemic, the process of moving from one country to another is very difficult. My family is staying at the Puerto de Santiago resort. I want to move to America. Where I can get a COVID test for flying back to America?

Yes the only one that seems available to me would be the non lucrative one but that seems to be for people who want to retire to Spain and get residency, not for snowbirds who want to stay for more than 90 days and less than 182 and reside in the UK.
