Types of RESIDENCE
INITIAL AUTHORIZATION OF TEMPORARY NON-PROFIT RESIDENCE
Non-resident foreigners who intend to enter Spanish territory in order to reside for more than three months but do not have the possibility of accessing a work authorization or do not wish to do so, may always request a non-profit residence visa at the Spanish Consulate that they have sufficient financial resources to reside in our country, thus, once they enter Spain, within a month we must request the foreigner identity card that reflects the initial authorization of temporary non-profit residence.
Before that year, work authorization would only be accepted when a need to work can be proven due to circumstances that have occurred since entering Spain to guarantee the survival of the foreign resident. However, the above does not prevent the foreigner from creating a company or making investments and receiving the benefits as an owner or investor, of course. In addition to investing in the businesses that interest you, it is also perfectly possible to study with this non-profit residence permit.
From GLC abogados we take care of all the management and processing, with the completion of applications, documents for the payment of fees, preparation of documents and all those documents publicly accessible from Spain, including the fact of making an appointment with the Spanish consulate for delivery of documentation or interview, as well as contracting private health insurance if he considers it appropriate, limiting the client to signing the necessary documents and authorizations that will be duly made available to him and providing us with his identification documents and original documents from the country of origin of the interested party. relationship with financial resources, criminal record, family ties … that are required.
This authorization will have the duration of one year that will be calculated from the same entry into Spain with the visa. This residence does not allow any official paid work. However, this non-profit residence could be changed to residence and self-employment by carrying out a business project of activity that proves hiring and economic development.
There is also the possibility of accessing the work residence as an employee (the job offer of any company in Spain without any geographical or activity limitation would suffice) but only after one year in residence status (requesting it two months before).
In addition to the applicant, this residence authorization could be extended with identical characteristics (duration, benefits …) to his spouse and his economically dependent children, it simply increases the economic amount that must be accredited for the granting of residence, as will be explained below.
The foreigner who wishes to renew his temporary non-profit residence authorization may request it in the province in which he resides during the sixty calendar days prior to the expiration date of the validity of his authorization. The presentation of the application within this period extends the validity of the previous authorization until
the resolution of the procedure.
