This article is directed at foreign nationals wishing to obtain an official work permit and a corresponding residence permit in Spain. We presume that you have already decided why you want to work in Spain and in what capacity you wish to do so.
The tricky moment about obtaining a work permit in Spain is the current economical situation in the country and the rest of Europe: the crisis forced the Spanish government to toughen the immigration policies concerning foreigners who want to find work in Spain without residence. At the same time, it has become slightly easier to receive residence permits for the purposes of opening or developing your own business in Spain.
In order to successfully finish the process of finding legal employment in Spain, it is necessary to clearly describe your current situation and your professional goals to the immigration professionals. How can you find them? It is not that difficult. These need to be law firms that are registered in Spain, headed by or employing licensed attorneys practicing immigration law.
It is not recommended to entrust your career to anonymous free advisers on the Internet or middleman firms. One meeting in person with a qualified lawyer in Spain will be enough to establish the relationship, which can be continued via e-mail and/or phone.
