There is more than one way to acquire a Golden Visa.
Depending on your risk appetite, you may choose from the following
Real estate is the safest and most conservative investment option to acquire residency in Spain. Invest a minimum of €500,000 in one or more real estate assets.
The real estate economy in Spain is thriving. In 2021, the Central Bank of Spain released statistics showing return on real estate investment is at +7,9%.
To be eligible for a Golden Visa, you must make a deposit in a Spanish bank or purchase stocks in a Spanish company for at least €1,000,000.

Treasury bonds are government securities with a long-term maturity period of 10 to 30 years. Interest payments are often done twice a year up to the point of maturity.
Once the investment has reached its maturity, you will receive the face value of the bond you’ve invested.
Another investment option to acquire a Golden Visa is by creating a business in Spain that generates jobs, contribute to science and technology, or has a socio-economic impact on the region or locality where the business is located.
