Spanish Residency Investment ‘Golden Visa’ Guide

Everything you need to know about the Spanish ‘Golden Visa’ investment law offering qualified Spanish residency in return for investing in Spanish real estate

How to get Spanish residency as a non-EU national by investing in property in Spain

In 2013 Spain introduced a law offering residency permits to non-EU nationals in return for an investment of €500,000 or more in Spanish property. This became popularly known as the Spanish ‘Golden Visa’ scheme.

The objective of the law is to attract entrepreneurs to Spain, and stimulate foreign investment in Spanish real estate, public debt, and job creation.

This law enables non-EU nationals to get qualified residency permits in return for investing in Spanish real estate (and other assets), leading to long-term residency in Spain if certain conditions are fulfilled.

Spanish residency, and the ability to travel freely in the European Schengen area (for 90 out of every 180 days), will be a major attraction for many non-EU investors.

Added to which, Spanish property prices have crashed into bargain territory, creating some excellent investment opportunities.

It’s an attractive combination of residency and bargain prices for investors from outside the EU.
