Non Lucrative Visa
What is the Non Lucrative Visa?
The Non Lucrative Visa(NLV) is designed for non-EU/EEA and non-Swiss foreigners who wish to live full time in Spain, but without working there or making a large investment in the country (such as for the Spain Golden Visa).
(NLV) allows foreigners to get residency based on proof of sufficient economic means, originating from a source outside Spain, €28,800 being the required amount for the 1st Person, Iprem amount for 2nd and Subsequent €7,200.
*Iprem will change soon.
These amounts can be made up of passive income (state pension, occupational pensions), savings (including investments and pension pots) or a combination of the two.
*€28,800 for information is 4 X IPREM (Indicador Público de Renta de Efectos Múltiples).
The IPREM is announced by the Spanish authorities annually in January, it can increase so you need to be aware that financial requirements can also increase.
We do accept unmarried Partners, and have had many approved without any problems.
Whats Next After Approval?
Once you have the Approval, you will be asked to pick up the Visa in your passport, if they have allowed this, or it will be delivered with the Visa inside.
The Visa is a Schengen visa that lasts for 90 days, this allows the time to come into spain to get organised, you can ask for multiple entries to avoid the TIE starting if you are not ready, most are at this point!
Once here, we can give you links and advice on obtaining the padron but it does differ in all areas, so we cannot attend and do not charge for this, it is needed for the TIE appointment.
Once you have the Padron we do however get you appointments for your TIE, supply all paperwork and instructions, we don't attend as we think keeping our prices low is better and it's such a simple process that they do every day at the immigrations so it's not a reason to worry, the 30 days from entry to obtain the TIE on consulate paperwork, is a little out of date as they are aware of appointments being hard to get in some areas, so please do not let this worry you.
We will eventually get you an appointment in any area of Spain with Expay.
