The Spanish Golden Visa

(or "Property Visa") grants automatic residency in Spain when you purchase property for 500,000€ or more. This can be any type of property: home, commercial, land, or a combination of properties. As opposed to the wealth visa, the golden visa does not require you to be in Spain 183 days of the year.

The steps to getting a golden visa:

  • You come to Spain with your travel visa and look for a property.
  • Once the pre-agreement (contrato de arras) is signed and corresponding funds are deposited, you can apply for the golden visa. If needed, the authorities can grant you a permit for six months so you can complete the process of buying your property.
  • If your golden visa application is accepted, you will receive a visa for one year. As opposed to other visas, the golden visa application can be presented while you are in Spain.
  • After receiving your golden visa, you can keep renewing the visa, as long as you do not sell your property.

Please see our property guide to understand the steps to buying a property.
