Over a decade’s experience

Golden Visa in Spain –
Residence by Investment

The Residence by Investment visa is the ideal residency permit for non-EU citizens looking to invest
in Spanish real estate or stocks and shares.

  • Permanent residency for you and your family in this beautiful part of the world.
  • Enjoy the same rights and benefits as European citizens.
  • Freedom to travel around the Schengen area with no additional visas or paperwork.
  • No need to prove that you live in Spain for a minimum number of days per year.
  • The possibility to work and do business in Spain.

The Spanish Golden Visa is the fastest and most privileged permit.

Why is the European Golden Visa one of the most requested options for residency in Spain?

  • 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.

  • Working rights. You can work in Spain if you want to, either for a company or self-employed.

What will life look like once you receive the European Golden Visa for Spain?

  • 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.

  • You’ll have the freedom to travel to the 26 countries the Schengen area as often as you wish with no extras Visas or paperwork.

I have over 20+ years of experience working with various kinds of lawyers in New York, Boston, Zurich, Barcelona and Tokyo. Evelyn Romero was hands down the best immigration attorney!

Laia Fernandez has done an outstanding job with my divorce case and I can not thank you enough for that. She was able to explain to me all the steps very clearly and was very proactive. She really made it simple & transparent. The fact that she is bilingual (English/Spanish) also helped a lot !Thank you once again Laia for everything !

We applied for a 1 year non-lucrative visa, the visa team led by Magdalena Barrueto provided a first-class exceptional service to us. The process of applying for the visa is long and complex, however with the professionalism, expertise, guidance and support of the team we successfully received our visas. The team led us through the process in a clear and concise way, providing important support with the translation of documents. We cannot recommend Carbray highly enough.

Dealing with the bureaucracy in Spain can be intimidating for newcomers. It’s also confusing! This is particularly true when applying for residency. Carbray International did an excellent job shepherding my wife and me through the process. We’re very pleased with their work and recommend their services in the highest possible terms.

Carbray International Law Firm was an absolute god send. I am so delighted with the outcome of my case. My lawyer, Magdalena was very efficient, was able to communicate and be very knowledgeable about the subject matter at hand. Furthermore, Michelle who assisted me on the day was very charismatic and friend to calm my nerves. Both of them made my application process extremely easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Carbray.
