The residence visa issued under this Act is sufficient to reside in Spain for a year, without having to process the foreign identity card title.
The residence permit allows residence in Spain for two years and can be applied by those who, being holders of a visa investor, have travelled at least once to Spain, within the period of validity.
The renewal of the residence permit can be performed even if the investor has been absent of the country for more than six months a year.
