AUTHORIZATION OF RESIDENCE IN SPAIN FOR REAL ESTATE INVESTORS

On the 28th of September 2013 Law 14/2013 of the 27th September, regarding support for entrepreneurs and their internalization, took effect, which introduces a new framework (Title V Section 2a International Mobility) for qualified immigration which favours the international mobility of professionals and executives and attracts foreign investment.

The program is based on the establishment of a flexible system and specific to the granting of visas or residency authorizations, preserving those guarantees that become essential for the security of our society and the conservation of our public services, with the following objectives:
 To promote enterprising culture and create favourable surroundings for economic
activity.
 Facilitate the influx of investment and talent with a view to favour economic increase and the creation of jobs.
In particular, this type of Residency could be applied for investors who undertake a significant investment in Spain that, in the case of real estate, must be equal or more than 500,000€ for each applicant and free of charges, that means, without MORTGAGE.
The first step would be request the “VISADO DE RESIDENCIA PARA INVESORES” (Residence Visa for Investors). This visa should be requested at the Spanish Consulate in the country of your origin and gives the rights to live and work in Spain for 1 year.
For the investors that wish to reside in Spain for longer than one year will the law establish the option to apply for “AUTHORISATION OF RESIDENCY FOR INVESTORS”, which will be valid in all national territory and permit work and live in Spain for two years.
The Law allows that the investor may request, at the same time as, or following their application, a Residency visa or Authorization of Residence for their spouse and/ or children under 18 years of age (or children of age who: a) has economic dependence of the investor and doesn’t have their own family; b) are not objectively able to provide for their own needs due to their health).
However, the Law has been changed by the Law 25/2015 of 28th of July. As more important change, it establishes the new option to apply directly for the Spanish Residency Authorization, in the event that you have another kind of Spanish visa (different of Investor Visa), for example, a Tourist Visa; so it is not necessary that you have the Residency Visa as an Investor to apply for the Investor Residency Authorization.
To apply for this kind of authorization of residence in this way you must be in Spain at the moment of the application and you cannot be in Spain more than 90 days in the period of time of 180 days (since the last entry into Spain).
