On our last post on the Spanish investor’s visa we had briefly touched on the subject of citizenship. It is worth noting that there is a draft law in the works that will render a minimum knowledge of Spanish compulsory.
Another important issue regards the need for a visa or not to enter Spain. EEE countries plus Andorra just need their ID cards. The following countries need a passport valid for 3 months after the end of the traveller’s stay (maximum stay is 90 days):
Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermudas, Bolivia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Egypt, El Salvador, Ecuador, Georgia, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Saint Christopher and Nevis, Senegal, Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United States, Uruguay, Vatican, Venezuela, Vietnam, as well as Hong Kong and Macao. (This list may be subject to changes)
On a final note, reunification is possible and the following family members are eligible for reunification: spouse or de facto partner; children under legal age (18); sponsor’s parents (if they are over 65 years old) and spouse’s parents (if they depend economically on the sponsor): minors and disabled under the sponsor’s custody.
As regards the reunification of the spouse’s parents, evidence must be produced to prove that the parents do not have the financial resources to support themselves.
