Moreover, the program plays a crucial role in promoting diversity and innovation, attracting skilled professionals and entrepreneurs who contribute to Spain’s economic growth and global competitiveness.

In essence, the Spanish permanent residence program is designed to facilitate a mutually beneficial relationship between individuals and the Spanish society, offering opportunities for personal and professional growth while enriching the nation’s cultural fabric and economic landscape.

  • Financial Investments: Invest EUR 2 million in government bonds, EUR 1 million in shares of Spanish companies, or deposit EUR 1 million in a Spanish bank account.

Application Process​

  1. Schinder Consultant London guides the Client through the initial visa application process and assists in gathering all necessary documents. The client is then required to submit their golden visa application at a diplomatic or consular office in Spain. Alternatively, the new business option can be pursued online.
  2. The application undergoes processing within an average of ten working days from the submission date, after which the Client receives their first “golden visa.”
  3. Initially valid for one year, the “golden visa” can be converted into a full three-year residence permit, contingent upon meeting additional requirements. To successfully convert the initial golden visa into a five-year residence permit, the applicant must be physically present in Spain to complete relevant procedures and provide biometric data.
  4. Upon submission of the application to the relevant immigration office in Spain, the residence permit is typically issued within twenty working days. Schinder Consultant London oversees this process to ensure efficiency and compliance.
