I cannot express enough how pleased we are with the exceptional service provided by this lawyer company in facilitating our residence visa for Spain. From the outset, their dedication to our case was evident, and the level of professionalism demonstrated throughout the entire process was truly commendable. One of the standout aspects of our experience was the excellent communication maintained by the team. They ensured that we were well-informed at every stage, promptly addressing any concerns or queries we had. This transparent and proactive approach not only instilled confidence but also made the entire journey stress-free. Special recognition goes to Mark and Maria. Their attention to detail and thorough understanding of the intricacies of the visa application process were crucial in achieving a successful outcome. Thanks for all your help and professionalism.

El gestor que me ayudo con el proceso se llama Darío. Desde el principio la comunicación fue muy buena, muy rápida, eficaz, conocimiento legal muy bueno y sin ningún tipo de contratiempo a la hora de agendar citas ni gestionar documentación. Casi todas mis experiencias con abogados no han sido buenas, pero esta vez quedé más que satisfecho con su gestión. Muy recomendado.

asked questions

Does this authorization allow me to change clubs or teams?

Yes, indeed. This authorization is not linked to a specific club or team, so you can modify it when your contractual situation changes.

Can I include my family?

No, your family should be included through other visa or residence modalities, or reunified later.

Do exits for national team duties or international competitions affect my stay in Spain?

No, formally, international commitments related to your professional activity do not affect the duration of your residence authorization.

Can I compete in European competitions with this authorization?

Yes, without restrictions. However, if you change clubs or teams and move to another EU country, you will need to process the relevant residence authorization there.
