Spanish residence for Entrepreneurs
If you develop an entrepreneurial activity, of an innovative nature, and you believe that it has a special economic interest for Spain, we can help you to benefit from the residence legal regime for entrepreneurs.
Depending on where the entrepreneur is, a one-year visa will be processed if he is outside Spain and needs to come here to carry out the necessary procedures to start the entrepreneurial activity, or a two-year authorization if the person is already in Spain to launch its project. In Sterna Abogados we can manage your tourist visa to help you to come to Spain and carry out the procedures when you are already here, opting for a more extensive residence permit and speeding up the procedures for granting it.
Both residence permits have the possibility of renovation, procedure that we can also help you to carry out.
