The client, in this case, is a non-EU citizen who was offered a job as an IT developer. Prior to this, our law firm had assisted in obtaining a Spanish work permit, but these visas often require specialized knowledge, and the requirements may differ from case to case. Lexidy advised that based on his professional experience and qualification, the best option would be to apply for a residence and work permit as a highly qualified professional from Law 14/2013.

It turns out that the company that offered him the job had obtained a favourable report from the Directorate General for International Trade and Investment on the consideration of the activity carried out by the company as a strategic sector.

This report is not something that all companies can apply for, but if it is a small or medium-sized company that can be considered of national interest, obtaining such a report makes it much easier to hire non-EU foreigners as highly qualified professionals (work permit).

Of course, the person must fulfil the requirements to apply for a residence and work permit as a highly qualified professional. Still, we have certainly seen that such a report has made it easier to obtain a permit, and on top of that, in record time.

Here, the client had the professional qualification and experience for the job position. Authorities granted the permit in three working by showing his academic certificates and letters from previous employers alongside the favourable report from the administration.
