The self-employed work and residence permit is for those who wish to set up a business in Spain. The main requirements for this type of permit is that you can prove you have plenty of financial resources to support yourself (minimum of 60,000 ), you have a clean medical and police certificate and you are capable of carrying out the proposed activity.

Who is entitled

We can apply and assist in obtaining a work and residency permit for any person with sufficient financial means to open a business in Spain. The immigration authorities will take into account the following:

  1. The potential creation of new jobs, capital contribution, new technologies and improvement of production conditions.
  2. Proof of having enough financial means to carry out the project. 1
  3. Proof of having the professional capacity to carry out the project. 2
  4. The existence of a regime of reciprocity in the country of origin.
  5. Medical and criminal record clearance.

  1. Depending on the business or venture and number of investors, we recommend a minimum of 100,000 for a sole applicant. This rule is not fixed and it may vary between countries and type of investment. In any event this investment remains safely deposited in the name of the applicant. Although you can withdraw the funds as soon as the bank certificate for the sum deposited is issued, we recommend that this amount is held in this bank account during the entire application, in order to maximize the chances of approval.
  2. Some activities do not require a professional capacity or qualification, such as restaurants, hotels, retail shops,etc. We shall be happy to offer advice in greater detail as to favourable business projects for residency application purposes. We can also introduce our clients to reputable independent agencies specialising in the purchase of suitable and appropriate existing businesses.
In this way Lawbird Immigration Services will provide full end-to-end management of your work permit and residency application.

Hi Roberto. We have received confirmation that the euros have been received in the UK this afternoon. May we take this opportunity of thanking both you and Antonio for your very best attention to our problem. You have handled the situation with first class professionalism and we are very grateful. Everything moved so smoothly and with much less hassle than we had anticipated at the start of the year. Thanks again and may we take the opportunity to wish you both every success in the future. .

Thanks to Lawbird we recovered our money from the sale of our apartment in Spain. We sold our apartment in May 2008. We were told by the lawyer representing us during the sale that it would normally take 2-3 months to receive our money. This is rubbish and beware of any Spanish lawyers that sell you this line or jargon.

In January 2009 with still no money from the sale of our property and countless emails and phone calls later we decided to take further action. Thankfully Lawbird were nothing short of excellent in conducting a criminal procedure against our previous lawyer recovering our money in full in less than 4 months.

My advice is to stay clear of A. A. and let Lawbird take the stress and strain out of any Spanish law formality. Thanks Lawbird and keep up the outstanding work for your clients. .

In 2009 Raymundo Nesbitt handled a property conveyance for me. He was professional, knowledgeable, helpful and available at all times and in all aspects of the conveyance. At one point a question mark over an outstanding action by the community of owners against the property developer arose. Raymundo's advice in respect of the issue blended both legal and practical advice and was valuable in making a risk assessment on the purchase..
