Work in Spain: requirements for foreign workers

Work in Spain: requirements for foreign workers 28 January, 2014Leave a comment

In order to work legally in Spain, foreign workers must comply with a series of requirements. In Spain there are different visas and work permits depending on your occupation, the economic contribution you will make to Spain and the time you will be there.

The legislation is different for EU citizens and non-EU citizens. Citizens of the European Union don’t need to obtain a work permit but they do need to follow a series of steps to be able to enjoy the same rights as other workers in Spain.

All the foreign workers that want to obtain a visa must go through a series of administrative procedures that start with the completion of the official application form EX-03.
