There two main requirements you will need to consider in order to get your work permit in Spain as a worker for a company are the following:

  • You cannot be inside Spain in order to apply for this visa, and it will be your employer the one initiating the application procedure
  • Not every single job offer will be valid. The concrete job position must be inside a shortage list that respects the national situation of unemployment in Spain.

If the project you are willing to start is not innovative or does not use a high-enough level of technology, then the regular work permit as a freelance is for you. What should you consider?

  • You must carefully prepare and present your business plan to one of the 5 institutions in Spain that are in charge of accepting them
  • You must have the educational qualifications required to realize the specific tasks that your company requires
