How can I get the permit?

If you are a relative (spouse, de facto partner, descendant or dependent ascendant) to an EU citizen living in Spain, you can benefit from the following advantages offered by the current legislation:

 To apply for and obtain a residence permit for 5 years, without having to renew your permit every year.

 To unlimitedly travel to all countries within the Schengen Area without the need to process a different visa for each one of them.

 To work and study in Spain.

You have several options.

Initial Residence permit for 5 years

You could apply for this permit if you are a relative (spouse, de facto partner, descendant or dependent ascendant) to a Spanish or any other EU-country citizen who is living in Spain.

In order to keep this permit during this 5 years period, it is mandatory to stay in Spain during at least 183 days.

The initial authorization of this kind of residence permit will be granted for 5 years.

After a period of 5 years, you could ask for the renewal and change your temporary permit into a permanent one
