Golden Visa of Spain

Invest €500k in Property and gain full family residency in Europe

About the Program

Spain is an European Union country in Southwestern Europe, with further territory across the strait of Gibraltar and the Atlantic Ocean. Its continental European territory is situated on the Iberian Peninsula.

Spain launched its golden visa programme in 2013. An investment of €500,000 in real estate allows the whole family to get Spanish residency.

The Spanish investor visa can be renewed every two years. After five years it is possible to gain permanent residency and, after ten years, citizenship. Living in Spain in order to retain and renew the residency visa permit is not obligatory.
