Quick resolution. Once you hand in the application you will get a confirmation within 20 working days.
No minimum stay. Unlike some Visas, you do not have to prove that you live in Spain a minimum number of days per year. You can spend as much or as little time in the country as you like. The only requirement is that you visit at least once per year.

The initial visa lasts for two years, if we make the application for you within Spain (recommended – if you are not able to travel to Spain to make the application, please consult us about the requirements). You can renew for two more periods of two years, and then apply for permanent residency.
The Investor’s Residence Permit allows you to bring your family too. If you qualify for the visa (see requirements below) your partner, children and dependent elderly parents can be put on a joint application. Ask us for more details on this.
