Your personal Spain residency or citizenship plan in 30 minutes


Take the stress out of immigration

Are you thinking of Moving to Spain?

Does any of this resonate with you?

  • You have read a lot of information online, but government advice is confusing, and websites contradict each other. 
  • The advice online does not exactly fit your personal situation.  
  • Your Spanish isn’t fluent, and you’ll need it for your application and appointments.
  • You simply don’t have the time and energy to deal with immigration red tape. 
Alastair and Alison in Spain

Hi, this is Alastair and Alison,

In 2014, we were in your shoes. We wanted to move to Spain, but we had no idea what we needed to do to make it happen. What visa or residency permit was best, and how did we even start the application process? We had a million things to do, and we did not need this uncertainty.

We wanted nothing more than to move to Barcelona, so we searched for an immigration lawyer.

 It did not end well.

From the start, communication was sporadic. Pricing was unclear. We had unnecessary 7am trips to Barcelona police stations and mix-ups with appointments.

And what happened next was nothing short of heartbreaking.

Our son’s application was rejected.

After MONTHS of preparation, we had to start the entire process from scratch.   All the time standing in immigration queues like cattle was to no avail.

There HAD to be an easier way!

We made it our mission to find the best Spanish immigration help for people like us.


We have found Barcelona partners who deliver everything we would have loved to have had when we moved to Spain.

  • You will speak to an experienced, qualified Spanish immigration lawyer in English. It won't be the intern looking to upsell you, and you won't need Google to translate.
  • They will listen to your specific requirements and recommend the best option for you and your family. Choosing between a non-lucrative visa and a Golden visa should depend on your needs, not the commission earned.
  • They'll be honest with you about each opportunity. There's no point in aiming to get Spanish citizenship by naturalization if you can't give up your current nationality.
  • They know Spain's immigration law inside out and know the best way to get through the red tape. For example, a change in the way remote work is viewed may mean avoiding the autonomo work permit and choosing a non-lucrative visa instead.
  • They will get you the right appointment with the right office and accompany you to the interview if you need help. And they'll tell you the right time to be there!
  • They'll offer transparent, open, and competitive pricing. You'll have no nasty surprises, and your quote will cover the services you choose.

My situation was complicated and I was confused. I was moving between the UK and Spain over the next five years and had no idea which visa or residency card I needed. During my consultation with the lawyer, they listened to me and then identified a straightforward solution saving me a lot of time and two thousand euros by not applying for the wrong visa. I highly recommend them.

How does Where Can I Live find the best immigration partners?

We have an 8-point assessment to find the best in the business.

All Where Can I Live Trusted Partners must:

  • Be legally qualified to practice immigration law in their jurisdiction.
  • Be local immigration law SMEs that are up to date with the latest options and opportunities.
  • Have excellent press and outstanding reviews for customer service.
  • Show transparent and fair pricing.
  • Have sound privacy policies and procedures to ensure the safety of your data.
  • Put their customer’s interests first and not push unsuitable programs and schemes for their own profit.
  • Be a customer-focused, boutique law firm, and not a sausage factory. We want people who care about clients, not billing.
  • Communicate clearly with customers in English.

Our 8-point assessment is just the beginning.

Once we have selected our partners, we monitor their performance with every single client.

If you use a Where Can I Live partner, we’ll ask you how it went – and we do with every single client. We also do in-depth interviews with some clients where we want more information. And, we consistently monitor other review sites and press for any red flags.

If a partner doesn’t meet our standard, we terminate the collaboration. And, yes, we have fired partners when their standards have slipped. We will not accept poor service for our clients.

Do we trust our selection and assessment process?

Yes, 100%. That is why we offer a 100% guarantee of satisfaction. If you are unhappy with your initial consultation, just tell us what went wrong, and we’ll refund you immediately. Our long-term business counts on the performance of our partners.

Raquel was very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone. She was very clear in explaining the process and requirements. I was thrilled at the end of the meeting to know that I had a good chance of being accepted. I have signed up with them to help me with the whole visa process.

It went very well. The lawyer was very pleasant and helpful. I was also pleased to see how much they can help and the cost of the services. I am just starting the process of a non-lucrative visa for Spain and have engaged them to help me.

We've got A's for your Q's

What will the lawyer cost?

Every application varies, and so very few lawyers publish a price list. However, your lawyer should be able to give you an accurate quote once you have had your initial consultation and agreed on the required services. Don’t proceed without a clear quote for the complete service.  If a lawyer has prices quoted on their website, check to make sure it covers all parts of the service and there are no surprise add-ons and exclusions. And, does your fee cover an administrative appeal if your application is rejected?  

If I do use a lawyer, what services will they offer?

Lawyers in Spain offer a massive range of services. The firm you engage with should match your requirements. Some people opt for the full valet service, others just want their application checked prior to submission. Some firms only focus on specific areas of immigration law or a specific area of Spain.  

Why should I pay for a consultation?

Many reputable immigration firms in Europe charge for a consultation. This allows them to take enough time to understand your situation and to give you an honest assessment of your situation. And it means you’ll meet with a qualified immigration lawyer and not the intern or admin. Free consultations are sometimes just a marketing strategy to push a standard sales pitch.

Why should I use the Where Can I Live Spain partner?

We have a detailed selection process for all our partners. We are so confident of the quality of their service and value that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. We’ll only ask why you were unhappy to improve our service, you’ll get your money back immediately no matter the answer.  

Will my application be accepted?

There is no guarantee. Each consulate has slightly different processes. And the requirements change over time. However, a good partner will understand those details and ensure you don’t submit an application before it has the best possible chance of being approved.

Does your Spain Partner speak English?

Yes, they speak fluent English.  

Has COVID impacted being able to move to Spain?

Yes, the pandemic has impacted processing times and logistics. And, given the continuously changing circumstances, it is hard to be definitive. What we do know is that applications are still being accepted and processed, but with some delays. And, as the vaccine rollout accelerates in Spain and around the world the situation will improve.
