Non Lucrative Long Stay Visa Spain?
- Víctormanuel Paz
A Spanish non-Lucrative visa is a permit to enter Spain under the purpose of residence without working. It is categorized as a Spanish long-stay visa. The main requirement to get this visa is having sufficient financial means to support yourself without the need to get a job in Spain.
Once you are in Spain with a non-Lucrative visa, you should apply for your residence permit for non-Lucrative purposes, which is renewable. That is why in many places you may notice that the visa is referred to as the Spanish Non-Lucrative Residence Visa.
Following in this article you can learn anything that you need in order to apply for a Spanish non-Lucrative visa.
How long can I stay in Spain after my nie expires?
How long do I have to renew? – You have a maximum of 90 days to renew your NIE. However, it is very important to make an appointment for the renewal before it expires. If your NIE expires and you do not have an appointment, you will be committing a serious infraction, hence not being able to renew your residence permit or stay in Spain (most likely).
Therefore, it is crucial to get your appointment on time. It does not matter if your NIE expires then: you can then show the receipt of your appointment and it will act as a valid document. Finally, if your intention was to leave Spain and return to your home country, you will have those same 3 months to do so.
