In September 2013, the Spanish government released law 14/2013 to facilitate non-European investors and talents to get their residency and work permit in Spain. The law has a wide range of target audience including investors, entrepreneurs, highly-skill professionals and researchers.
Ever since its release, much attention was paid to the investor part. There has been very little attention paid to the highly-skill candidates. It is the case when you visit a lawyer, they might not have even heard of this law and they would insist that if you haven’t resided in Spain for more than 3 years, there’s no way you would get a work permit. But this is not the case!
