This visa does allow you to:

  • Reside in Spain for one year: The visa is then renewable for a further 2 years and a further 2 years after that. After five years, there exists the option to apply for permanent residency and eventually Spanish citizenship.
  • Alternatively: After 12 months, you can apply for another kind of visa such as a work visa or the Spanish Golden Visa.
  • Bring your family with you: Unlike other visas that require you to have already lived in Spain for a specific period, provided you can demonstrate sufficient funds (as shown above) this visa enables your spouse and children to reside in Spain with you.
  • Invest in funds to generate an income.

This visa does not allow you to:

  • Carry out any type of economic or professional activity in Spain.
  • Work in Spain for a Spanish company or open a branch of your own business in Spain. You cannot work for companies that are located outside of Spanish territory ie. travel between Spain and another country to carry out your work.

“ Lisa gave us great information on the NLV process. Her e-book was well worth the money it’s a step-by-step guide to the process with all the links to relevant forms and websites you need. We also had the initial consultation with her which made sense of all the questions we had. The best thing we did was to contact Lisa..”

“ Lisa helped me and my family through the NLV. We are now enjoying our new, amazing life. I have talked to people here in Spain who have tried to manage this on their own (guessing they believe they are saving a little bit of money) but have been caught out on simple things whilst applying. Experience is everything and Lisa has bags of it and is a pleasure to work with.”

“I don’t think I would have received my NLV if I hadn’t contacted Lisa for the eBook and consultation. Worth every penny (cent) – 5 stars and I cannot recommend highly enough!”

“We have just heard the news that our non-lucrative Spanish visas are ready for collection. It was a very long and complicated process to ensure all the correct forms and documents met all of the consulate requirements. We would not have been successful without the purchase of the non-lucrative visa book, it told us in detail everything we needed to do and complete. What was even more helpful was the regular email updates we received with any changes the consulate had put in place which meant we were ahead of the game of others.

Purchasing the book is worth every penny and compared to the cost of a solicitor incredible value for money..”
