Can your residency application be made from within Spain?

Whether you can carry out your residency application from within Spain or not, depends upon from where you are a citizen.

  1. EU national citizens
    if you are an EU national citizen then your residency application can be made from within Spain. There are requirements which must be fulfilled and we recommend the appointment of a legal advisor for the preparation and completion of this residency.
  2. Non-EU national citizens (third-country nationals)
    if you are a citizen of a non-EU country, your application cannot be made from within Spain but can be made through the Spanish legal offices from within your country of nationality. These are technical applications and require legal guidance. We would be happy to assist.

Permanent residency is obtained after 5 years of Spanish Residency through Self-Empoyed Residency or Non-Lucrative Residency or Residency through Investment. This followed by 5 years as a permanent resident and means you can then obtain Spanish Citizenship with a Spanish Passport.
