Immigration

The “Golden Visa” program in Spain is a residency-by-investment program that allows non-European Union (EU) citizens and their families to obtain Spanish residency by making a significant investment in the country. The program aims to attract foreign investors and stimulate the Spanish economy. It provides a pathway to residency and, eventually, citizenship for those who meet the program’s requirements.

Here are the key features of the “Golden Visa” program in Spain:

Investment Requirements:

To qualify for the “Golden Visa,” applicants need to make a significant investment in Spain. The eligible investment options include:

  • Real Estate Investment: Investing a minimum amount in real estate properties, such as residential or commercial properties. The minimum investment amount varies based on the specific criteria and location.
  • Business Investment: Investing in a new or existing Spanish business, creating jobs, and contributing to economic growth.
  • Public Debt: Making a significant investment in Spanish government bonds.
  • Minimum Investment Amount: The minimum investment amount for real estate and business investments can vary based on different factors, including the location and type of investment. The minimum real estate investment is €500,000 or more, depending on the area.
  • Residency Benefits: Successful applicants and their immediate family members (spouse and dependent children) are granted temporary residency in Spain. This residency allows them to live, work, and study in Spain and travel freely within the Schengen Area.
  • Residency Renewal and Citizenship: The initial residency permit is usually valid for one year and can be renewed for up to two years. After five years of continuous residency, individuals and their families can apply for permanent residency, and after ten years, they may be eligible to apply for Spanish citizenship.
  • Family Inclusion: One of the significant advantages of the “Golden Visa” program is that it allows the main applicant to include their spouse and dependent children under 18 in the application.
  • No Requirement for Physical Residence: Unlike other types of visas, the “Golden Visa” does not require the applicant to reside in Spain for a specific duration each year. This flexibility makes it an attractive option for those who wish to maintain their residency while not fully relocating.

European citizens have the right to live and work in Spain without a specific residence permit. However, if you plan to stay for more than three months, you need to register your residence.

To register your residence, visit the local Foreigner’s Office or police station and submit required documents.

You’ll likely need a valid passport or ID, proof of sufficient financial means, proof of health insurance, proof of address, and a completed application form.

While the EHIC might provide temporary coverage, you’ll likely need private health insurance or to join the Spanish public health system for more comprehensive coverage.

Yes, family members (spouse, children) can usually be included in your application for residence registration.

The process involves finding a suitable property, completing due diligence, signing a reservation contract, and finalizing the purchase contract at a notary’s office.

Yes, European investors might have access to mortgage options through Spanish banks, subject to certain eligibility criteria.

Property values in these cities have historically shown appreciation, driven by demand from both local residents and tourists.

Non-resident property owners may need to pay property taxes, rental income taxes, and other associated fees. Consulting a tax professional is advisable.

The process of selling a property in Spain involves listing it with a real estate agent, negotiating the sale, and finalizing the transaction at a notary’s office.
