Program Benefits

The Spain Golden Visa Program encourages investors outside the EU to invest in real estate, job creation and public debts. Under the program, investors and their families are eligible to obtain temporary residency in a matter of months through minimum property investments of €500,000. Other investment options are also available including business, government bonds or bank deposit. The legislation has no minimum period of residence; an initial residence card is granted for 2 years, which is then renewable every 5 years. The Spain Golden Visa Program is a true gateway to Europe, expanding your visa-free travel mobility within the Schengen Zone. This program allows the investor to consider residency acquisition as their first step towards permanent residency and citizenship acquisition if required. Further residency requirements will need to be met; after 5 years permanent residency can be obtained, and citizenship after 10 years living in the country. It is not necessary to live in Spain in order to retain and renew the residency visa permit. However, the route to permanent residency and citizenship requires the investor and their family to reside in Spain. The Spanish Golden Visa is an investment only route and does not require any contribution or donation to a fund.
