Immigration - Spain
We have an extensive international experience with resolving immigration issues.
INVESTOR VISA(GOLDEN VISA PROGRAM by property investment)
• The Investment must be made without financing regarding the first 500.000,00 €.
• The investment can include one or multiple properties and the properties can be rented out.
• The Golden Visa allows all holders to work anywhere in Spain.
• Properties can be bought and sold, so long as the investment threshold is maintained.
NON-LUCRATIVE VISA(Residence in Spain with no economic purpose)
• It allows to stay in Spain for up to a year, then for renewal periods of two years.
• After living in Spain for five consecutive years, it is possible to apply for permanent residence.
• It does not give you the right to work legally for a Spanish Company until you are granted permanent residence.
Our corporate visa service helps established companies relocate employees to Spain. The corporate visa service includes the following:
For EU citizens

• The Spanish Residence Card for relatives of EU passport holders (reagrupacion familiar).
For citizens of non-EU countries:
• Work permit with the prospective employer.
• Temporary work permits for foreign personnel in the firm to realize a particular task in the Spanish office.
We provide assistance with the application for student visa for those who want to conduct research or study at a Spanish university.
In collaboration with the Lady Elizabeth School, we arrange language studies for groups of international students.
We help you obtain both the temporary and the EU NIE.
You can apply for permanent residence after you have lived in Spain for five years, and after 10 years you can apply for Spanish nationality. Exemptions from 10 years rule apply.
If you become a Spanish citizen, you will be required to surrender your original nationality. Spain does not allow dual citizenship, unless you are you’re from a Spanish-American country, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea or Portugal, or Sephardic Jews and descendants.
Although still there are certain unclarities related to status of British expats living in Spain, there might be considered various options.
- British expats living in Spain who meet the necessary criteria to main EU access might consider applying for Spanish citizenship. This would, however, require renouncing the British citizenship.
- British expats may be asked to apply for an EU Blue Card, that is work- and residence permit for non-EU/EEA nationals. The European Blue Card provides comprehensive socio-economic rights and a path towards permanent residence and EU citizenship. It is a similarity to US Green Card.
