How Long Can You Stay in Spain If You Own a Property?

Understanding Residency and Stay Limits

Dreaming of owning your very own piece of paradise in Spain? The allure of a holiday home in the sun is undoubtedly tempting, but before you pack your bags, it’s crucial to understand the regulations governing your stay. That’s where we come in! We will not only assist you in finding the perfect property for sale in Spain but can guide you through all of the rules governing how long you can stay in the country.

The 90-Day Rule

If you’re planning extended stays in your Spanish property, the 90-day rule is something that you need to consider. As per current regulations, property owners can spend up to 90 days in Spain during the summer and an additional 90 days over the winter. However, it’s important to note that these limits cover the entire Schengen area, including travel time through other countries if you’re driving to Spain. So, if you are making your way there through, say, France, you will need to bear this in mind.

Your Other Options

For those who wish to stay beyond the 90-day limit, there are other options that you can explore, such as the following types of visas:

  • Non-Lucrative Visa: This visa is suitable for individuals with sufficient financial means to support themselves, whether they own or rent a property in Spain. It allows for extended stays, offering a more flexible lifestyle for those who want to make Spain their home.
  • Golden Visa: If you invest at least €500,000 in a property in Spain, you become eligible for the Golden Visa. This provides residency rights in acknowledgement of your substantial investment in the country, allowing for longer stays.
  • Other Visa Types: Depending on your circumstances, visas for work, study, and self-employment are also available, providing additional avenues for those seeking an extended stay in Spain. We can talk you through these, so be sure to mention if these are options you want to explore.
