BENEFITS OF THE GOLDEN VISA IN SPAIN

Also, the residence visa from the Golden Visa allows free transit through the other 26 European countries of the Schengen area.. This freedom of movement is emphasised as one of the main reasons for applying for a visa. In addition, the Golden Visa makes it easier to obtain visas not only for the person making the investment but also for his or her spouse and children under 18 years of age, and for admission to public schools.
