We help you obtain your residence permit with an investment of 500,000 euros or more in real estate in Spain

If you are not a citizen of the European Union and are looking to invest in real estate in Spain, you can now benefit from the law passed by the Spanish Government, commonly known as the “Golden Visa”. This law allows you to obtain Spanish residency as long as you invest 500,000 Euros or more in the real estate sector within the country’s borders.


Residency in Spain will also be granted to your immediate family members and dependents, that is to say to your spouse, your underage children and your adult children who are dependent on you.


The Golden Visa Spain, in addition to allowing you to reside in national territory, will give you access to a large number of benefits that only Spanish residents can enjoy.
