Golden Visa Program

Since 2013, the Spanish government launched the Golden Visa Program in order to attract investors to Spain for residency purposes.

The Spanish Golden Visa Program grants residency in Spain once you purchase property for at least 500,000€. This can be any type of property: house, commercial, land, or a combination of properties.

The residency by golden visa program  can be easily renewed without living in the country, For both permanent residency and citizenship it is required for the investor and his/her family to reside in Spain.


  • Flexible Circumstances with no obligation to reside in Spain
  • Full Family Residency
  • Access to Schengen area
  • Unlimited Schengen Travel
  • By this program, you can apply for citizenship after living full time for ten years


You come to Spain with your tourism or business visa and seek for a property.

Once the preagreement has been signed, you can apply for the golden visa. If needed, the authorities can grant you a permit for six months so you can complete the process of buying your property.

When your golden visa application is accepted, you will receive a visa for one year.

After receiving your golden visa, you will apply for your residency card which will be valid as long as you do not sell your property.
