Bring your family to Seville with the Golden Visa Programme

The Spanish Golden Visa programme was established in September 2013, and it aims to encourage foreign investors outside the EU to invest in the country’s economic growth. Applicants not only have the opportunity to live and work in Spain, but also the opportunity to bring their families with them. The primary advantage of the Spanish Golden Visa scheme is that the government law does not demand a minimum period of residence and the application process is simple and straightforward. The initial residency card is issued for one year (or two years if you visit Spain), which can be extended after a five year period, and then extended for another five years. You may apply for permanent citizenship after you have lived in the country for a minimum of five years. 

At the same time as your own application for the Golden Visa Spain, your family members should either be:

  • Your spouse 
  • Your children under the age of 18 
  • Your dependent family members (you must prove that they are dependent or have a health condition that makes them unable to be independent).

If you wish to know more about the process, who may apply, the benefits and the steps you need to take, read also Golden Visa Spain and contact our team of experts here.
