Permanent Residency and Citizenship in Spain

It is possible to apply for permanent residency in Spain after living in the country for five years. Citizenship can be applied for after living full time for ten years. Although the temporary residency permit (the golden visa) can be easily renewed without living in the country, the route to both permanent residency and citizenship requires the investor and their family to reside in Spain. For this reason the Spanish Golden Visa programme is popular with those applicants who either wish to reside full time in Spain or simply maintain a second residency in Europe but without a path to citizenship. Investors looking for potential European citizenship are advised to consider the Portugal Golden Visa program.


Spanish Golden Visa through Property Investment

After reaching a low in 2015 Spanish property prices have been rising steadily from around €1450 sqm in 2015 to around €1700 sqm in 2022 achieving growth nationally of around 2% each year. However prices remain below the peak of €2101sqm reached in 2008 and at today’s prices real estate in Spain may offer value going forward. An investment of €500,000 is required to apply for a golden visa. Investors needing our services may wish to check our procedure or read more detail for the golden visa programme in Spain.
