Golden Visa Spain

Golden Visa Spain is a residency by investment program launched in 2013 which offers investors residency in Spain in return for an investment. It’s not a direct route to citizenship. However, if you get your Golden Visa and decide to live in Spain, you might be eligible for citizenship after 10 years. As of 2021, the Spanish government had approved over 13,000 Golden Visa Spain, according to data from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Golden Visa Spain scheme is available through real estate purchase, capital transfer, or business set up in the country. The minimum investment amount is €500,000 and the stay requirement is only for one day in a year. The other options in terms of capital are: to make a capital transfer of €1 million to a spanish bank account, or to invest a minimum of €1 million in a Spanish Business, or to invest a minimum of €2 million in Spanish Government Bonds.

It takes on avergae six months to obtain Spain Golden Visa after investing. The programme gives residency permits and access to European Union’s borderless travel zone in exchange for investment. Golden visas offer the opportunity to essentially ‘buy’ the right to residency in a country.
