Law on support of the Entrepreneurship and its Internationalization
New fast-track residence & work visas
17/02/2017
The Law on Support of the Entrepreneurship and its Internationalization (September, 27th 2013) introduces a new specific framework to encourage the arrival to Spain of investment and talent in order to foster economic growth and create jobs. This new immigration framework is based on an agile and specialized system for visa and residence authorizations in Spain.
 
Who can apply for these visas?
These visas can be requested by foreigners who are Non-EU citizens and fall under the following categories:
General requirements and documentation that must be attached to the visa application (original and a copy):
  • Have not been resided illegally in Spain.
  • Be over 18 years old, except for family members accompanying the main applicant.
  • A valid passport with a minimum validity of 1 year at the time when the application is submitted.
  • If the applicant is not a Belgian citizen, he/she must provide documentation proving his/her residence status in Belgium (permanent residence permit, working permit, study permit, etc.)
  • If you over 18 years old, a negative criminal record, authenticated and translated, issued by the authorities of the country or countries where you have resided in the past 5 years.
  • A public or private medical insurance with an insurance company authorized to operate in Spain.
  • A foreigner identity number (NIE). If you do not have one, you must request one simultaneously with your visa application.
  • Sufficient economic means at the time of the visa application, or proof of a source of regular income for you and your family, where applicable, in the following amounts:

A monthly amount of 2,130 Euros for 2014 or its equivalent in a foreign currency to support yourself.

A monthly amount of 532.51 Euros for 2014 or its equivalent in a foreign currency for the support of each dependent. This amount is additional to the one mention in the previous point

  • A completed and signed visa application form with one (1) recent full-face photograph attached to its right top corner. The photograph should be a Canadian passport size picture, in color, on a light, plain and uniform background, without dark glasses or any garment that may prevent identification of the applicant.
