1Who is this Service for?

Just as in many other countries, Spain maintains a list of those jobs for which it is difficult to find employees in Spain, or the EU, and therefore maintain a national list of jobs which employers may advertise and fill the positions from outside the EU.

Should you have received an offer of such employment you must apply for the appropriate work visa.

Alternatively, an EU scheme – known as the EU Blue Card – permits those with sufficiently advanced academic qualifications or work experience to apply for and receive a visa permitting them to live and work in Spain.

A firm offer of employment is also a requirement. Other limitations include the fact that the salary offered must be a minimum of 1.5 x average salary.

2What does this service consist of?

  • An initial discussion with lawyers highly experienced in making successful applications for residency and work visas based on either the EU Blue Card scheme or the filling of a job for which it is not possible to find suitable candidates in Spain/EU
  • Assistance and advice on the documentation required and completing and submitting the forms (all in Spanish only) in both countries before stipulated deadlines to ensure the application is approved
  • Advice and assistance with applications on behalf of the worker’s spouse and family (if required)
  • Assistance upon arrival with obtaining foreign residency cards
