Would you like to proceed to apply for a residency permit in Spain?

We can evaluate your circumstances and legally advise on how to proceed.

Permanent residency is obtained after 5 years of Spanish Residency through Self-Employed 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.
