Another option to get a residency visa that could allow you to work in Spain is provided by the Entrepreneur´s visa, under Law 14/2013.
This is a residence permit created for those non-EU citizens who want to open a start-up business in Spanish territory.
Upon compliance with the requirements set-out in the relevant legislation, Spanish immigration law will grant you residency as a result of your business idea.
However, bear in mind that business must be truly innovative and the project is required to be aligned with the interests of Spain. In order to be accepted, your project must fulfil the following conditions:
- It has to create employment for the country, at least in the long-run, and be a positive stimulus for the general Spanish economy and good investment opportunities
- The business must involve a high level of technology and enhance the socio-economic development of Spain.
