Spain is home to millions of foreigners at the moment. There are numerous explanations for why ex-pats choose it as their home country. There are several benefits, including warm weather all year round, delectable food, and an advanced healthcare system.

There can be no doubt. It is one of the most unique and spectacular countries in Western Europe. Located south of France and west of Italy, life in Spain is like no other. The country is offering some of the most important and desirable lifestyle changes that ex-pats are searching for. The things which we hold dear, the crucial things such as healthcare, quality of life, and culture are all aspects of living that are, undeniably, of excellent quality.


To live in Spain continues to be one of those romanticized ideas and sought-after dreams. And for good reason. This country is steeped in rich culture and traditions that have become iconic worldwide. More and more people are setting out to make it their home. If you’re thinking about moving to another country, here are some great reasons why to live in.


Spain is a very sunny country with a warm year-round climate that draws not only millions of tourists to these shores but also the many thousands who look to emigrate here. The yearly weather in Spain is glorious with those who live here enjoying around 3,000 hours of sunshine each year! There are of course seasonal variations and the weather you get will very much depend on the time of the year and the region of the country you are in.



Spain performs well in a number of well-being dimensions relative to other countries in the Better Life Index. Spain outperforms the average in work-life balance, health, social connections and safety. It underperforms average in jobs, education, and life satisfaction. Spain was considered to be the fifth best country to live in, one of the best countries in the world for expats to relocate to and it is one of the world’s favorite retirement destinations.



With a robust network of hospitals and medical centres, Spain’s high quality health care system caters for a variety of needs, including wellness checks, surgeries, emergencies & much more. In 2009, Spain was ranked 7th best in the world by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The average life expectancy in Spain is an amazing 92.8 years, which is the first highest average living age in the world.



The cost of living in Spain is quite different than the cost of living elsewhere. The country is more affordable than many western European countries, making it favorable to expatriates. In general, Spanish cities have much lower costs than you’d expect for a major EU country. In terms of overall costs, it’s a cheaper country to live in than the UK. The further south you travel (by city, not region), the cheaper the prices are.



Spain is one of the safest countries in the world according to the Global Peace Index 2020, it ranks among the top 40 countries with the highest level of peacefulness in the world, following close behind Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Switzerland and Sweden. In addition, it’s the fourth country in the European Union where the fewest crimes are committed, coming in behind Greece, Portugal and Italy.



Spain is one of the most popular destinations on the planet. Every year, millions of people visit the country for magnificent experiences.

Despite its popularity, it remains a country that one should fully explore to get the complete picture. Although Spain may conjure up images of sun, sand, etc, there’s beautiful green spaces, mountain villages, and architecturally beautiful cities as well. It’s the perfect destination for a summer.



Spanish are also very generous, warm and welcoming. They love socialising, great communicators and they are very accepting in terms of opening up friendship groups to “outsiders”, which is great if you’re looking to find your feet in a new country. Not only that, they’re known to be generous and also love a good time!

The Spanish came in above European counterparts as being more content with life.



The Spanish economy has steadily surpassed that of its European counterparts over the last five years, in

pre-pandemic circumstances. Spain is one of the countries in the world with the least restrictive regulations for international investment. It has the largest network of highways and freeways in the EU, two of Europe’s busiest airports, the world’s third most extensive high-speed rail network and home to three of Europe’s most important ports in container terminal moves.



As one of the most popular destinations for expats and retirees settling in Europe, Spain has long been at the top of many people’s lists when looking to move to the continent. With a textured and colorful history of accepting expats from across the globe, Spain has quickly become a haven for those rebuilding a home away from home on the Iberian peninsula. Expats in Spain not only come for the booming expat culture but for the endless rewards that a Spanish life can provide.



Spain is a large country and with much of it boasting a year-round warm climate, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing somewhere to live. The wide choice of property in Spain is impressive; from neat and affordable apartments to sprawling, rural retreats and everything in between, you’re sure to find the perfect home for your new life in Spain for every style and budget from traditional Fincas with land to contemporary new build villas and apartments – you’ll be amazed at how far your budget.




In order to move to Spain, you will need to follow the following steps:

  • Decide which is the right residence permit or visa for you.
  • Then, you must check the specific requirements for that permit.
  • Understand if you can apply directly from Spain while being a tourist, or you need to submit your documents from your home
  • Prepare the documentation and send it to the competent institution.
  • Get your visa and travel to Spain.

Immigration to Spain can be a difficult task for many. But with the right advice, it shouldn’t be that way. Because in order to enjoy all the wonders of the country, you will for sure need to enjoy legal status. And that implies obtaining a residence and work authorization.

As you may not know where to start or still have tons of doubts, we have gathered the main tips that will make this whole process much easier for you and your family.



In Spain, there is no restriction on property ownership and if the investment is higher than

€ 500.000 you can even get residency and be granted the investor residence permit, called golden visa.



The Golden Visa is the residence permit for Spain with the most benefits and the simplest procedure. With this visa, you and your family can work in Spain straight away.

To do so, you must invest:

• At least €500,000, net of taxes or charges in real estate,

• Deposit €1 million in a Spanish bank account,

• Or purchase €1 million in stocks of Spanish companies.

How to obtain a Golden Visa?

There are two ways to apply for a Golden Visa. You can do it from your country of legal residence with the local Consulate. They will grant a one-year residence visa and you can extend this after arriving in Spain.

You can also apply during a 90-day stay as a tourist. In this case, you can apply directly for the residence permit and receive a two-year investor visa.

Real Estate Investment

For this approach, you must invest at least €500,000 in one or more properties. The investment cannot include taxes, fees or a mortgage.
