First… A Disclaimer
Family Move Abroad doesn’t represent the Spanish government or individual consulates in any way.
I track publicly available information and do a lot of research to whittle down the tiniest of details to successfully apply for the Spanish Non Lucrative Visa at each consulate.
It should go without saying, but if any of the information here conflicts with information you get from the consulate or any other official Spanish government body, their word is the final word.
I try to stay current, but information can be updated anytime. Family Move Abroad takes no responsibility for discrepancies with or changes to consulate requirements. The consulate’s word is the final word.
COVID-19 Update January 2022: In response to the pandemic, consulates are regularly updating both their visa instructions and their procedures by which you apply for the non lucrative visa. What might that mean to you? Changing procedures, limited appointments, and who knows what else. They don’t always post these updates and procedural changes to their website. Regularly check links once you are ready to get your visa application underway. Contact your consulate by email to confirm current proecudures.
Each Consulate Has Its Own Checklist
Every consulate has it’s own rules. Download only the checklist for the consulate where you need to apply. Trust me, you don’t need or want to know what other consulates require. It will just make you even more confused.
Each checklist contains nitty gritty details such as whether that consulate requires translation of Apostille and bank statements, or how old your child’s birth certificate can be before your appointment. It will also help you keep track of open, pending and completed items as you move along.
Adhering to these checklists does not guarantee you’ll get your visa. But, if followed properly, they should ensure you show up at your appointment with everything you’re expected to show up with, all nice and neatly organized the way the consulate wants to see it. Remember, the consulate always has the right to ask for additional information. In fact, it’s fairly common that they do. If so, they’ll tell you what you need to do, and give you a reasonable grace period to deliver it to them.
Each checklist has three pages:
- Primary Applicant
- Spouse Applicant
- Minor Child Applicant
If you’re going to Spain solo, print only the Primary Applicant page.
If you’re applying with your spouse, print the pages for Primary Applicant and Spouse Applicant.
Bringing kids along? Print one copy of the Minor Child Applicant page for each child on your application.
This way, you can track documentation for each person on a joint application individually. Neat, huh?
