Congress in Spain approved legislation for the Golden Visa (or "Property Visa") on September 27, 2013. The golden 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.
Strong Abogados offers a combined golden visa service to perform all the legal work involved in the property purchase ("conveyancing") as well as the work to obtain residency in Spain. We have longstanding expertise in both fields: since the year 2000, Strong Abogados has performed the legal work for 500 property transactions and helped 350 families obtain residency. The director of our Barcelona office specializes in hunting for properties that will yield the highest return on investment -- please see our property investment page.
In 2015, the golden visa experienced an easing in the criteria for its concession and renewal. This has helped overcome the bureaucratic hurdles that characterized the prior procedure. The government has also expanded the beneficiaries to include unmarried couples (parejas de hecho) and children of the buyers who are over 18.
