The best way to obtain a residence visa for the creation of a business activity in Spain is not to actually apply for this type of visa in the first instance, i.e., initially we must apply for a non-profit residence visa, which is applied for quickly and then after 10 months we renew it, once renewed we can make the change from Spain and telematically, modifying the type of non-profit residence to a lucrative one.
Why should we first apply for a non-profit residence visa? Because, from experience with many other cases, it is usually very complicated to obtain a residence visa for the creation of a business activity, while a non-profit residence visa is much easier to obtain at a consulate.
In addition, it is not advisable to initially apply for a residence visa for the creation of a business activity due to the high bureaucracy regarding the documentation involved in the process of applying for this type of visa.
