Excerpts from the article
Founder, Harrison Fowler
Inevitably, some visitors find reasons to stay longer. Some for the culture, some for the weather and the fact that it is one of the cheapest countries in Europe to live in—but many for love.
The latter reason is the case of Harrison Fowler, originally from Kentucky in the USA. He studied Spanish at University so decided to come to Spain to fine tune his Spanish skills.
Once in Spain, he met Alejandra, whom he said he fell head over heels for almost immediately.
For this love story to continue Harrison needed to find a way to stay in Spain and spend more time with Alejandra. He applied for work as a Conversation Assistant in a Government program for Bilingual schools.
Once Harrison popped the question, he decided to stay in Spain. He said, “ultimately I wanted to be wherever she was.” He added that as they were both bilingual they would have job opportunities in Spain that may not be as available to them in the States.
After dealing with the headaches of bureaucracy when applying for his residence and work permit, Harrison realized that probably other people are having the same struggle. Out of his own bureaucratic nightmare, RVF Spain Consultants was born.
Harrison offers the service of helping new arrivals to find their feet in Spain. As he has waded through the paperwork for the North American Language and Cultural Assistants program for Teacher’s Assistants, he felt he can be a help to others facing the same overwhelming amounts of paperwork. (I wish there had been such a service years ago when I had to fill out the paperwork for that program! Trust me it is a nightmare if you don’t have someone walking you through it)
He also offers the service of helping people through the paperwork of getting a work visa, a NIE, starting a business or even something seemingly simple as helping people get a sim card for their phone. Any of these tasks is daunting in a new country, but much more so if someone isn’t fluent in Spanish.
Harrison offers a free initial consultation to help people with the bureaucratic mess. If you would like to learn more about what services are included, head to his web page: www.rvfspain.com.
