Obtaining residence in Spain. The Temporary Non-lucrative visa. Right to reside without working.

Residency in Spain without the right to work. (Non-Profit)

Concept

It is a type of Visa or residency aimed at non-European citizens (not from the European Economic Area nor Switzerland). It authorises them to reside temporarily in Spain, without carrying out any work activity. That is, it is a residency without working and is regulated in Law 4/2000, and Regulation 557/2011.

In addition, it is a temporary residency authorisation; therefore, it must be renewed. Likewise, and unlike the residence for investors, or Golden Visa, it is not necessary to make an investment.

  1. Hello,

    Would the non-lucrative visa be granted to a native British citizen on a British passport who has resided in the Netherlands for a number of years?

    1. Thank you for your messagel.
      In Spain, it is necessary that the applicant is not living in irregular way in Spain. So, if you are living in Netherlands, and you apply for the Spanish Non Lucrative Visa, and you match with the conditions, you could apply for it.
