What are the benefits of having a Golden Visa?
People with a non-EU nationality aren´t allowed to be in Spain for more than three months and the advantages of tourist or work visa are time limited. The Golden Visa, however, gives investors from for example the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, China, the Middle East, etc. the freedom to live, work or be self-employed in Spain. The initial permit of 2 years can every time be prolonged for 5 more years.
How to obtain a Golden Visa through a real estate investment?
There are several ways for foreign investors to obtain the Golden Visa and by far the most popular option is through a real estate investment. The most important requirement is that the net investment amount -so deducting any potential mortgage loan- needs to be over € 500.000. Depending on your exact situation it´s also possible to include family members in your permit.
