What is the GOLDEN VISA?
It is a Residence visa for the Acquisition of Real Estate in Spain that authorizes residence for a period of 365 days if the sale has already been formalized or a residency for 6 months if the sale has not been formalized, but there is a pre-contract with a guarantee of its compliance by deposit or other formal means in public deed (for example “contrato de arras”).
This visa allows you to reside and work throughout the national territory.

The applicant must be 18 years old or older and not be illegally present in the Spanish territory or be listed as rejectable in the territory of countries with which Spain has signed an agreement to that effect.
