    Hello,

    Once you are based in Spain the only ways to make yourself legal would be through arraigo or through marriage to an EU citizen, as you correctly pointed out. There are no other ways unfortunately. Any other permit would require you having to apply from your country of origin or of residence.

    hello,

    Her problem was also my problem, and so as a lot of filipino here in spain. I arrived a month ago using my schengen visa from holland, since there was no chance to get a residency in holland i decided to go to spain.

    I still have a valid visa until the last of october. I already have an employer here, and i am currently working in them as an intern and they are willing to help me in any matter just to be legally working here. Is there a chance for me even though not to gain residency but for me not to be bothered when police check for my documents? will a working contract helps?

    I will really appreciate it if you could help me...

    Hello,

    As you correctly pointed out you are in the same situation as the person who wrote the previous post. Again, even though you are still within you legal stay in Spain (as a tourist), you would only be able to become legal in Spain ( as a resident) if you applied through arraigo or of course through marriage to a EU citizen. If you are illegal in Spain, you can at any time be approached by the police and be asked to leave the country.

    Hello Melo

    If you marry a Spanish citizen and you both reside in Spain, you will be able to obtain a residence card allowing you to live and work in Spain. If he lives our of Spain but is able to stay in Spain for at least 185 days per year and remains registered at the Town Hall, you should have no problems to renew the cars.

    He certainly needs to be residing in Spain at the time you apply for the initial residence card.
