FAQs about Spain


Despite Spain's relatively high unemployment rate, many European citizens come to live and work in the country. In 2005 the rate stood at about 10.4 % (the highest percentage being found in Southern Spain). To find employment it is essential to speak at least a little Spanish and have a good understanding of the language.

Even though there is an overall stagnation across the continent and Spain's taxes, labour and operational costs are not the lowest in Europe and Spain's economy is still growing.

EU citizens can come to Spain to work and only need an NIE number. Again, the chances of getting a job in are much higher if you speak Spanish! Citizens from other countries need a visa and work permit. For those who want to start their own business a "tarjeta comunitaria" and a "licencia fiscal" is necessary.
