Children and grandchildren of Spaniards in Argentina can obtain a work visa in Spain
24 April, 2019Erika
If you have a Spanish grandparent, or your parents emigrated to Buenos Aires years ago and you want to work in Spain, don’t miss the opportunity offered by the Ministry of Labour, which will create a pilot programme for children and grandchildren of Spaniards who do not have dual nationality .
Who is the programme for?
If you are between 18 and 45 years old, you can apply to the programme.
How can I apply?
A pre-registration form will be available on the website of the Consejería Trabajo, Migraciones y Seguridad Social en Argentina.
When will I be able to complete the form?
The timeframe to complete and submit the form begins on April 1 and ends on May 31.
And what do I do after completing the application?
If you are one of those selected, you must apply for a visa at the Spain Consulates in Argentina. From there, you can start the job search process because you will have access to the online database that the Public Employment Service will make available.
How long does the visa last?
This special permit will last for three months, during which you must find employment, “preferably of high professional qualification”.
And what about my family?
If you have obtained the special permit and a contract of employment, your family can apply for Spanish citizenship. And no, you do not have to go back to Argentina to complete this process. Of course, you must declare your status as a child or grandchild of Spanish of origin at the Immigration Office.
Could I be the right person?
No doubt you have many skills, that your Spanish grandparents bequeathed you their knowledge of the old country, and that you are more than qualified in your field, but you should know that at the labour market level they are looking for personnel in the computer engineering sector, information technology, science, finance and marketing.
The labour market will certainly need a migratory supplement, an input of job profiles in sectors such as technology and IT that cannot be filled by the people here
