1Who is this Service for?

Introduced by Law 14/2013, the Golden Visa programme in Spain offers high net-worth individuals and their families the possibility to live and work in Spain. The Visa is initially valid for two years, renewable for 5 years and evenually a permanent residency visa and even naturalisation to become a Spanish citizen (after 10 years residency) is an option. 

2Qualifying Investments

The most popular qualification route is the purchase of property valued at €500,000 (without a mortgage).The visa permits the holder to enter and exit Spain as and when they wish, without any requirement to spend a minimum period of time in Spain, as is typically the case with other residency visas issued in Spain. Other options include:

  • A significant business investment that either involves meaningful job creation or is likely to have a significant socioeconomic impact in the area where the investment takes place or is an innovitave business with technological or scientific impact
  • €2 million on Spanish Treasury bonds
