SPAIN RESIDENCY

Golden Visa Program for Non-EU Citizens

Spanish passport holders have the right to study, work, and live in any country in the European Union. Non-EU citizens and members of their families have the opportunity to obtain a Temporary Residence Permit in exchange for carrying out Real Estate investments in Spain whose value exceeds €500,000 Euros. The Temporary Resident Permits will also be granted to Spouses and any dependent children (under 18 years of age) but will not give the resident benefits such as free healthcare and education or other social benefits and so the investor and his or her family must have health insurance and be able to show sufficient financial resources to support themselves.

The Temporary Residence Permit is granted indefinitely but will require the Owner to visit Spain once each year to renew and to receive the replacement EU National Identity Card.
