The Spanish Law defines residence permit as a
document that allows you to stay in Spain and that
it can be renewed on the request of the party concerned,
if the conditions prevail under which it was granted.
Residence permit is independent from the N.I.E. which
we will refer to in a different section.
There are several circumstances in which residence
can be obtained, but we basically consider residence
to be that of a person who is a national of an EU
country who has acquired a property and intends to
live permanently in Spain.
The applicant will have to prove that he/she has
the means to live during the period of the residence,
or that they have a regular income, and have guaranteed
medical insurance or reciprocal medical care.
