Job Seeking Visa in Spain

For non-European citizens studying in Spain, the Residence Permit for searching for employment is perfect to make a future in the country.

  • With this visa you have a residency permit, so it’s easier to be hired.
  • After applying, the confirmation will be fast, within 20 days.
  • Once granted, you have a whole year to find employment.
  • Must have a Bachelor’s Degree or higher.

Stay in Spain after studying and
scale your opportunities with the Job Seeking Visa.

There are many advantages of the Job Seeking Visa:

  • Quick resolution. You’ll have confirmation within 20 days.
  • Smooth transition to a working visa. It’s difficult to get a working permit coming directly from your studies. With this visa you already have a residency permit, so it’s easier for potential employers to hire you.
  • Your family can extend their stay too under the same conditions as the joint application linked to a Student Visa.


    • The qualification must be level 6 or higher according to the European framework, ie a Bachelor’s Degree or higher (Masters, PhD etc). You’ll need to make sure that the duration of your studies, and the institution where you undertook them, is eligible – we can confirm this for you free of charge. To get started, contact us.  
    • You must apply within 60 days before finishing your studies or 90 days after. 
    • Once granted, you have up to 12 months to find employment.

        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! Evelyn is extremely knowledgeable and proactive with impeccable attention to detail, responsive and personable communication, and a kind and professional approach. I’m very happy I found her and I highly recommend Evelyn Romero to anyone looking for a highly skilled, no hassle immigration attorney.

        I have been working with Carbray for several years, since they assisted with the initial visa application for my life in Spain. All of the attorneys that have worked with me for the last four years have been professional, forthright and prompt in their replies. If you are looking for knowledgeable and professional people to help guide you through the daunting process of dealing with a new government to process your immigration, I can recommend Carbray International with the highest degree of confidence!

        We cannot thank Carbray enough for all their help and support throughout our NLV process. Magdalena and her team have been so amazing and so helpful and we couldn't have done this without them. They reply to every phone call and email instantly and are always there to help through what can be quite a stressful process at times. I would recommend Carbray to anyone thinking about starting to apply for their Spanish visa!!

        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 used Carbray International Law Firm to obtain NLV Visas for Spain. I’m so glad we did! We were allocated our own Lawyer Magdalena Barrueto, and she was always at hand to guide us through the process and answer any of our questions or concerns.I would recommend this Law firm without hesitation.Excellent service, no messing and timely. I would definitely use again.

        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.
