Spain is a country that offers a high level of quality of life due to its climate, food, culture, beaches, natural resources, etc. It has always been one of the countries that annually receive more tourists and immigrants. Since the beginning of the crisis in 2008, the Spanish government advocated measures to facilitate the processing of residence permits for foreigners who want to invest in Spain (Real Estate or Business).
These are the main types of residence in Spain that we can currently handle:
.1.- Spanish Golden Visa by investment in a property of 500.000 € or invest in a business in Spain
For the foreigners who buy a property for more than 500.000 € or do a proper invest can process easily a Spanish Golden Visa for 2 years.
.2.- Spanish Residence Permit without the right to work
For the foreigners who have sufficient funds to live in Spain without having to develop any kind of lucrative activity. This can be shown by buying or renting a property and by having around 100.000 € per person as savings in a bank account.
.3.- Spanish Residence Permit with the right to work as a businessman
For the foreigners who want to establish a business in Spain and have sufficient funds (not less than 100,000 € in a Spanish bank) to develop it.
