Spain is a country of opportunities. That is why the interest on the part of foreign businessmen to invest in the Iberian Peninsula has not stopped growing in recent years, with special attention to the Costa del Sol, the Costa Brava, and the Costa Blanca, in the province of Alicante. Spain stands out for having a competitive economy that facilitates access to the global market, an attribute that foreign citizens, especially Russians, value when investing.
In addition, foreign investors have access to the Golden Visa, which allows them to access a permanent residence permit if they invest a minimum of half a million euros in a property. This type of residence permit is an added attraction for the investor, with Chinese and Russian citizens the most opting for this fast track of settlement.
