Lawyer Raymundo Larraín highlights the main advantages of the Spanish Golden Visa.
Spain has experienced a spectacular real estate boom in the last 8 years, only marred by the Covid pandemic in 2020. In coastal areas and large cities, property prices have almost tripled since 2015.
During this time, the Spanish Government introduced two new immigration plans that have shaken the game board: Beckham’s Law in 2015 and the Digital nomad visa in 2023. Both mirror each other; the first is designed for EU nationals and the second for non-EU citizens. They introduce a series of attractive tax advantages with the aim of attracting foreign talent, both from the Union and outside the EU. More than 10,000 people benefit from the Beckham Law’s lenient tax breaks (which apply nationwide, regardless of where you settle in Spain).
We learned in a post-pandemic world that working remotely is not just a possibility, but downright a necessity for many. For those who can escape the harsh weather of their home countries and seek the warmth and light of milder climates year-round, along with ultra-low taxes, these new immigration plans prove to be a temptation too hard to resist. So why even fight temptation? It’s simply smarter to give in.
Starting a new life abroad is a compelling idea that lurks in the minds of millions of people every day. But in reality, only a handful have the courage to break out of the limitations of narrow traditional work molds that date back centuries. Work remotely from Malaga on your laptop in 21 degrees, paying little or no tax, is no longer an unattainable dream, it is a reality come true for thousands of people. Break the heavy chains of social conventions and create your own path in life, adopt a new lifestyle in line with the 21st century.street Century.
However, despite the great success of the two immigration schemes mentioned above, the undisputed king of all visa permits remains to this day the coveted, and often elusive, Golden Visa, introduced in 2013. It is the only visa in Spain that does not automatically make you a tax resident upon obtaining it. The incomparable freedom and choice it confers on its privileged applicants cannot be overemphasized. It is a blue ribbon visa that lays the red carpet at their feet and allows them unrestricted access to Spain and the Schengen area (27 countries). Since 2013, more than 5,000 golden visa permits have been issued, of which almost half were granted to Chinese citizens. The second nationality is Russians, with 20% of all applications.

“The only way to get rid of a temptation is to give in to it..” – Oscar Wilde
Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie wills wild (1854 – 1900). He was a prominent and brilliant Irish poet and playwright. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays, and his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, which features the ever-young and heartless Victorian aristocrat. My personal favorite is The Selfish Giant. He died young, imprisoned by narrow-minded social conventions, from which both figuratively and literally he could not escape. Simply unique.
