What is Citizenship by Investment in Spain?

Citizenship by investment in Spain is also known as the Golden Visa program. It is a residency permit that grants non-EU citizens the right to live and work in Spain in exchange for a significant investment in the country. This program was introduced in 2013 to attract foreign investment and stimulate the Spanish economy, and is a great way for those looking to invest in property to also gain some residency rights.

What Kind of Investment Do I Need to Make?

There’s so much information out there on how to get citizenship by investment in Spain, and there are a number of different options available to those pursuing it. Investing in businesses, government bonds, or depositing money into a Spanish bank are all viable options – but we’re here to talk about property. If you want to obtain a Golden Visa, then you need to invest a minimum of €500,000 in Spanish property. This could be anything from an apartment to a commercial premises.

Spanish Citizenship by Investment Criteria?

In addition to being able to invest €500,000 or more in Spanish property, there are some other criteria you will need to meet if you want to secure citizenship by investment. You will need to have:

  • A clean criminal record
  • Enough funds and adequate healthcare to cover your stay
  • No previous Schengen visa refusals

What are the Benefits of the Spanish Golden Visa?

When it comes to citizenship by investment, Spain is a leading choice for a number of reasons. You’ll benefit from full family residency for your spouse, dependent children and dependent parents. You do not have to prove your Spanish proficiency at any level – perfect if you are planning to pick up the language at a later date.

In terms of permanent residency, this is a great pathway to obtaining that. You and your family can gain permanent residence status after five years of continuous residence in the country and may gain Spanish citizenship thereafter. If you don’t want to become a Spanish citizen and just want a European bolthole, then it’s great in that regard too. You don’t have to live in the country, just visit every two years at a minimum to renew the visa. So, it offers plenty of flexibility!
