Golden Visa Scheme for Spain by Premium Spain Invest

What is a Golden Visa ?

In Spain, a Golden Visa is a permanent residency visa that is issued to persons who invest in the country.

The most common method for obtaining a golden visa is through the purchase of real estate with a minimum value which, in Spain is set at 500,000 €

Freedom of movement, tax advantages and access to the EU single market, the legal system and social services are some of the main incentives for EU member states’ programs.

Once granted, the investor is valid to work and reside throughout the national territory and so are his or her family members if they meet the age requirements stipulated by labor regulations.

Can family members accompany the investor?

Yes, at any time family members may request – jointly or successively – the authorisation and/or the Golden visa:

  • Spouse or de facto partner.
  • Children under age or those who are older but depend economically on the visa applicant.
  • Ascendants in care.


No additional investment is required for each member of the family.

What’s the application process like for a Golden Visa?

Investors are granted an Investors Residency Visa (temporary residence permit) for one year.

This can be extended to a two-year residency permit, renewable for additional two year durations. In order to hold and renew the residence visa, the investor must maintain his or her investment in Spain, and s/he is required to conduct a visit during the residence period. After 5 years of residency, investors can then apply for a permanent residence visa, and after 10 years of residency, citizenship can be requested.

The applicant is required to issue a NIE (identification number for foreigners) 

This number also serves as a tax identification number for individuals.
