It is one of the easiest ways to obtain the Spanish residency. This investor visa allows non-European citizens to obtain the Spanish residency for 1 year (with possible future renewals to extend the duration of the permit). One of the benefits of this residence permit is that it doesn’t require a stay in the country (for more than 183 days), but only that the applicant must visit the country on an occasional basis.

If you intend to move to Spain to study, then the student visa is your best option. 

  • For those foreigners who are going to pursue their studies in an educational center (either public or private). 
  • For non-European citizens initiating any kind of research work in the country.

If you are a family member of an EU citizen or you have formed a domestic partnership or marriage with an EU citizen, you can start living and working legally in Spain in a VERY SIMPLE way as if you were a resident.

  • Immediate family members: Domestic partner or spouse (marriage).
  • First-degree descendants: Children in common or of their domestic partner.
  • First degree ascendants: Father or mother of the EU citizen.

There are three main types:

  • Entrepreneur Visa: If you plan to start your own company in Spain and it’s an innovative and technological project.
  • Highly Skilled Worker: This visa is for those non-European citizens who have a job offer as a manager or in a similar high salary position.
  • Regular work permit: For those who have found a regular job offer in Spain that takes into account the national unemployment situation.

If you have sufficient funds and you’re not planning to carry out any type of economic activity, the non-lucrative residence visa is the best option for you. It will guarantee you residence in Spain for 1 year, with the possibility of subsequent 2-year renewals.

This is a type of temporary residence authorization for exceptional circumstances that may be granted to certain foreign citizens who are in Spain. There are two types:

  • Social Arraigo: It consists of having family ties in Spain and being socially integrated.
  • Labor Arraigo: The applicant must have had labor relations in Spain for at least 6 months.

It is the legal status held by those foreigners who meet the necessary requirements held by the Spanish government, which translates into getting several related rights.

Spanish citizenship gives you the possibility to live and work in any other European country other than Spain, it allows you to vote and the most important thing: it allows you to live indefinitely in the Spanish territory. There are 4 ways to obtain citizenship:

  • Residence
  • By Option
  • Descent
  • Marriage

The first step to start residing legally is to obtain the NIE. The Foreigner’s Identity Number is the basic document you will need to identify yourself in the country. It’ll allow you to carry out any type of bureaucratic or legal procedure such as buying a house, buying a car, setting up your business or getting your residence permit.

It is a document by which a Spanish or a foreigner legally residing in Spain, request the fostering of a foreigner in their home for a maximum period of 90 days. This way, they commit to take care of them during their stay in the country. This is one of the requirements established for those tourists who are not subject to the EU community laws.

If you have a trip outside Spain and your residence or stay permit is in a renewal or extension period, it will be necessary to request this authorization, which will allow you to leave Spain and return to the national territory within a period not exceeding ninety (90) days.

Our goal is that you don’t have to worry about anything, so we’ll take care of any appeal or administrative appeal that your case may require. If for any reason the Spanish Administration denies your application, we’ll use all our means to help you achieve your goals.

When I first started to work with Entre Tramites I left a 5 star review. The service was amazing, I had a very useful setup call with Louis and they were very reactive. Naturally, I keep working with them when I opened my company in Spain. Unfortunatly the service was absolutly not the same. I had hard time to get responses, the platform they asked us to use (AON solutions) was full of bugs and we lost a lot of time to recover invoices and documents that was already on this platform. I don't accuse their employee because they are working very hard and they doesn't seems to have in of time to manage every clients correctly. I'm sad to leave such a bad review because I was really impressed by their services but unfortunetly the lack of professionalism is affecting my business and they need to react.

Excelente el servicio y atención !!!! Cumplieron con los tiempos tal cual me dijeron ! Un placer trabajar con la empresa !
inexperiencia, lio, faltas en la comunicación. perdida de tiempo y dinero ya que no entregaron lo que se prometio. Louis, en la llamada gratuita antes de contratar servicio, por otro lado si que sabia de que estaba hablando pero desafortunadamente me atendió otra persona - una estudiante(parece de practicas) y no un profesional.

I'm planning to move to Spain this year and I had a lot of things I was not certain of in terms of tax. Louis has been super super helpful and knowledgeable, I even got an email follow up with a detailed explanation. I can't thank you enough, and I'll be in touch before I make the move.

I had a short conference call with Louis Williams about a week ago. He was organized, knowledgeable and very efficient. Within 30 minutes I understood not only the tax consequences of receiving 1099 income from the US, but also what my options are going forward, and what the estimated tax rate should be during my 1st year as a resident of Valencia. I had some additional tax-related questions which were a little technical in nature, and Louis handled them with ease and helped me to feel quite confident about my understanding of everything. Louis even went so far as to provide us with some additional suggestions on how I can get residency most efficiently (my wife is Schengen). Thanks again, Louis, you provided me with great value on our call!
