Golden Visa Marbella
A Golden Visa is one of the most attractive ways to obtain Spanish residence. However, not everyone is eligible to obtain one. It is a type of residence visa whose goal is to attract foreign investment, providing a series of advantages to those who are willing to bring their capital to Spain.
A Golden Visa is attainable for a willing investor who fulfills certain requirements, which in this case have nothing to do with an investor’s links to Spain, but with the investment’s quantity and type.
Therefore, a foreign investor who wishes to obtain Spanish residence and, consequently, the chance to move freely between all countries in the Schengen area, can do so by making property investments equal to or more than 500,000 euros (not including mortgage, or of a net price of at least 500,000 euros after deducting mortgage financing), or investments in business projects taking place there.
In addition to this, investors who wish to invoke a Golden Visa have other options to do so, such as through the purchase of a minimum of 2 million euros of Spanish public debt, by depositing at least one million to a national banking institution, or by investing the equivalent in a Spanish company’s shares.

A particularly appealing aspect of the Golden Visa is that it does not imply the obligation to reside in Spain, it only requires that the visa owner travel to Spanish territory at least once a year.
Therefore, if the Golden Visa holder does not want to change their country of residence, but wishes to be able to move freely through the Schengen area during long periods of time without having to depend on tourist visas, this is a great option.
On the contrary, if your intention is to reside in Spain, a Golden visa may also be interesting, since the olden Visa holder can apply for residence for his/her closest relatives – underage children and spouse – so the integration process in your new host country is shortened, in comparison with the time it would take to arrange a family reunion procedures through other routes.
Taking into account that the acquisition of a Golden Visa implies investing large amounts of money in a foreign country, some investors are reluctant to seize the opportunity, fearful of making a mistake that could cause them a considerable loss of capital.
Because of this, it is highly recommended to seek the advice of a law firm with deep knowledge of foreign affairs and regulations concerning the Golden Visa in Malaga or Marbella.
