The Spain Golden Visa program was established in 2013 as a means to attract foreign investment into the country. The program allows non-European Union (EU) citizens to obtain a Spanish residency permit by investing in Spanish property. The benefits of the program include the right to live, work, and study in Spain, visa-free travel throughout the EU, and the option to apply for permanent residency after 5 years and citizenship after 10 years. Participants in the program also enjoy access to the country’s strong healthcare system, education system, and high standard of living.

The basic eligibility criteria require the applicant to make a minimum investment in real estate or in the Spanish public debt. Additionally, the Spanish Golden Visa program has a relatively fast processing time and a low rejection rate, making it an attractive option for those looking to invest in Europe.
