    Hi Pete,

    Permanent residency can only be applied for once you have been a legal resident in Spain for 5 years.

    Please let me know what is your nationality as there are different rules for non EU citizens.

    Thanks patricia,

    Nationality is Australian. So Im guessing that If I am coming and going out of the country, this would effect gaining residency after the 5 years?

    Hello Pete,

    My apologies for this late reply.

    Yes, it would certainly have an effect if you spent more than 185 days per year out of Spain. The first step is to apply for a residence permit, either salaried ( if you worked for a Spanish company ), self-employed ( registering as a sole trader in Spain having your own business ), or Non Lucrative, that I do not recommend you in case you are a salaried worker out of Spain, as this type of residency is aimed to businessmen/women, wealthy individuals and leisure travelers than can prove solid, regular and high income.

    An initial residence permit is granted for one year, that is them renewed for two additional years. As you mention the nature of your job is related to the engineering sector in worldwide projects, the 185 days rule may not apply as you could prove your work demanded long periods abroad.

    I suggest you contact me by email so we can study in detail your profile and then decide on the best route to follow in your case.

    Hello Kadir,

    Once you decide to settle in Spain with your wife, you are granted three months to apply for your Tarjeta de Residencia de Familiar Comunitario. Among other documents, you will have to submit your marriage certificate and Town Hall registration ( empadronamiento ). After about 3-4 months you will be granted the residence card that will allow you to live and work in Spain during 5 years.

    After those 5 years you will be entitled to apply for permanent residency, called Tarjeta de Residencia de Larga Duracion, regimen comunitario,as you are married to an EU citizen ( of course, if you still keep the same family circumstances ).
