RENEWALS for the NON LUCRATIVE VISA
Updated: Nov 20
Although for many other Non Eu members this is not New, it is to the United Kingdom residents. At the beginning it was requested that the monetary requisites were in years 2/3 and 4/5 being asked for 800%, however from the 24th February, the Spanish Immigration announced that for the renewal years 2 & 3 the Iprem is just to show the Monetary allowance for the same amount as the initial application and only for the 1 year Iprem x 400%, *this is due to the non working status of the visa As this changes on the 1st January every year, I will supply details on request. The original need was to show double the amount, but this has been ruled no longer needed, this will make it easier for people to manage as some have savings and pensions that will only come to mature after the 2nd year appointment, and it helps to also have the property portfolio if you have on on hand to show as this is taken into consideration too.
It will be time soon for some of you to start thinking about renewing your NLV, you can start to do this from 60 days before and 90 days after, it is always better to start getting a list together and organizing what you need for the Renewal. What is needed for the Renewal? Fortunately you do not need to go back to the country you first applied from, this time it is all done here in Spain. This is also the time to consider if you want to swap to a Self employed visa or if you have had a job offer and can get a sponsor for a work visa, maybe this time you can jump on to a family reunification visa, hopefully you have taken the time to research what is needed for either of these, in this article we will look at just at the renewal of the Non Lucrative, so again it will be no work allowed. First Stage Monetary Funds As with the initial Application you will need to show the immigration that you can still support you and your family if you are applying for them too. Monetary support, this time they will want to see 400% of the Iprem, this does change yearly but for this year it is €579.02 monthly and yearly €6,948.24 at 100% so this will equal to €27792.92 a year, for the 400% for one person and as i have been told by various immigration officials , if you are able to support your self with the savings, or a monthly pension as you know these are accepted, what they do say now that for the 3rd year if you have a pension or policy that is maturing or you are selling an asset and the funds will be available for the 3rd year, along with properties and other assets you hold these are also taken into consideration. If you are receiving a pension and it matches the Iprem or over and is a guaranteed amount then this will be accepted too as it was for the first application. Of course on the day it is at the discretion of the immigration if they decided to accept or not, so the more attractive your income looks, the better! http://www.iprem.com.es/ Healthcare If you haven´t been able to apply with the S1 at the first stage, you can for sure do it this time around, get this sorted now and ready for the submission. After a year of being in Spain you can apply for the convenio-especial, if you wish to go on the Spanish healthcare of course and the cost will be available on request of this at the local Tgss office or a quick look online at the moment it is €60 for under 65 and €157 for over, the link is an example for Valencia https://www.gva.es/es/inicio/procedimientos?id_proc=17044 Or as in the first year, your preferred healthcare provider, My Go to Person is Linden @https://www.gospain.co.uk/ please ask to be put in touch.. Police Report This time around you will not need the Police report but please be aware any cautions or reports against you will be on record and will be looked into. Medical Certificate No need for the Medical Certificate this time either!
Other Necessary Documents This time you will need to prove that you have indeed been in the country for more than 183 days, so it may be necessary to show a Tax return, invoices to show payments relating to your previous 6 months, such as utility payments, rents paid, bank statements with movements, not forgetting your residence starts from your TIE so you could have 2 split years. I would suggest filing a tax return for the first year, please speak with me first to discuss as this can be beneficial to the approval of subsequent years,
