Obtaining a non-lucrative visa

As a British citizen, you can obtain a non-lucrative visa for Spain by following these steps:

  1. Gather the required documents: You will need to provide a valid passport, a criminal record certificate, proof of financial means, and proof of medical insurance.
  2. Apply at the Spanish embassy or consulate in the UK: You will need to fill out the visa application form and submit it along with the required documents. The application fee must also be paid at this stage.
  3. Wait for processing: The processing time for non-lucrative visas can vary, but it usually takes a few weeks.
  4. Attend an interview: You may be required to attend an interview at the embassy or consulate as part of the application process.
  5. Receive your visa: If your application is approved, you will receive your non-lucrative visa, which will allow you to stay in Spain for up to 12 months.

It’s important to note that the non-lucrative visa is intended for individuals who do not intend to work or conduct business activities in Spain. If you plan to work or study in Spain, you will need to apply for a different type of visa.
