Spain Investment Immigration Visa

Property Residency Visa for SpainSpain has introduced legislation that awards a residency visa for any international investor spending €500,000 or more on a property or portfolio of properties in Spain.
The visa legislation has now been passed by the Spanish parliament. We will be publishing information here which we hope will be helpful for those considering residency in Spain.
This visa grants residency in Spain, can be renewed and if one resides in the country for more than six months a year for ten years, citizenship and a Spanish passport can be applied for.

I only wanted to deal with what I consider being the “Genuine” and single best Agent of the site; your company. The choice was brilliant. Andy has been tremendously helpful and available in Spain. Lucy proposed to reserve this unit; it proved to be the single best remaining unit available when we visited the place. Edwina was patient and helpful all along the process and communication was top. And, we were really astonished to find the contract in our mailbox last Friday at something close to midnight. To all of you thank you very much !!!!
