Apply for a Non
Lucrative Visa in
Spain

The Non-Lucrative Visa is an excellent choice for foreigners seeking
to settle or retire in Spain. Obtain residency in as little as 3-4 months
we’ll do all the heavy lifting!

The Non Lucrative Visa is Spain’s approach to a Wealth Visa

Why is the Non-Lucrative Visa one of the most popular options for residency in Spain?

  • Easy application process. Once you hand in the application you can have the OK to move to Spain within 3 months, often even quicker.
  • No complex or costly investment requirements. You simply demonstrate your current economic situation. When you hire Carbray to manage the bureaucratic obstacles, it’s as simple as proving the criteria and submitting.
  • No changes to your working or earning situation. You can continue working remotely and receiving income from another country, while enjoying all the advantages of life in Spain.

What will life look like once you receive the Non Lucrative Visa for Spain?

  • You can reside in Spain for up to one year. After the first year, you’ll simply need to complete a simple renewal request every two years. After 5 years of residency in Spain, you can apply for permanent residency.
  • You can bring your family too. If you qualify for the visa (see requirements below) your partner and children are eligible for a joint application. Ask us for more details on this.
  • You’ll enjoy the same travel rights as a European citizen. Freedom of movement around the whole Schengen area.

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 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.

From the moment we started working with the Carbray team, my husband and I have had the most professional service. Starting with them reaching out to us right away from our first inquiry. Even in the midst of the pandemic the team was efficient and dealt with all delays.Their communication has been top notch as well. Not once through the entire visa process did we have to wait for a response or wonder about next steps. Their entire process was laid out clearly and we're very helpful following up on questions.We had called a few other firms that were not very responsive. We're so happy that we found Carbray. They are an excellent firm and we highly recommend them.
