A European Union without borders

What if Swedish citizens would be able to buy a property in Spain without leaving Sweden just for the sake of authenticate and identify themselves physically in front of government officials in Spain at a crowded office that have uncomfortable opening hours?

Well, having prepared all bureaucracy in advance the process would run much smoother and a lot of time and money saved. In the end, it would turn out beneficial for the Spanish state to sell more properties in less time.

There are many similar examples. especially when it comes to the future generation people, the young, the students, the millenials whose ability to use the internet became an innate characteristic. For them, borders have always been something fictitious.

We are with you in conquering the borderless European Union.
