Job Seekers Visa In Spain

Are you finishing your studies in Spain and wish to stay in the country?

This visa could be the best option for students to get a Residency Permit after completing their studies in Spain.

This visa is also known as a Job Seeking Visa or Employment Seeking Residency Permit in Spain.

The Entrepreneurial Support Act of 27 September 2013 (Ley de Emprendedores 14/2013) was modified on 4 September 2018 to include the instructions of the European Directive 2016/801 EU.

The main goal of this type of residence permit is to take advantage of the arrival of qualified students and encourage them to stay in Spain.

This permit allows students to obtain a Spanish residency authorization for 12 months in order to search for a job or to set up their own business, after they have completed their studies in Spain.

After completing my studies, I really wanted to continue living in Spain. Maryem and her assistant helped me to obtain my job seeker’s residence permit. She was very fast replying my emails, and she was always very human to me. Thank you very much for being clear with me from the begining.
