One of the easiest options for living in Spain is Spain's non-lucrative visa. The non-lucrative visa allows a non-EU citizen to live in Spain, but not work locally - this makes it attractive for retirees, vagabonds, and even some types of digital nomads. Unfortunately the requirements are difficult to understand, the representatives at the Spanish consulates are usually non-responsive, and the process is fraught with frustration.
This 65-page guide contains over 100 hours of research, and includes a detailed description of the individual requirements for the non-lucrative visa. You'll also receive a step-by-step guide for completing each of the steps, as well as a comprehensive checklist for a three-week timeline to acquire and submit your documents.
In addition, we've included important information for what needs to occur when you actually arrive in Spain, including how to document your arrival properly, register with the local town hall, and obtain your official residency card.
You'll typically pay upwards of $1,000 to obtain the visa, and an additional $1,000 to obtain health insurance as one of the requirements, so make sure the process is successful by following our guide and making sure your application is perfect so you don't lose your investment.
Moving to Spain may be one of the most important decisions of your life, and this guide will save you many hours of headache, indecision, and frustration. Not only that, but it will likely save you many times what this book costs in terms of wasted time or money when mistakes are made. Don't trust your dream of moving to Spain to chance: grab this guide and make sure you have all the knowledge you need to apply for the non-lucrative visa and eventually move to Spain.
