Obtaining a work and residence permit for Researchers in Spain

Residence and work permit for researchers who are going to carry out a research activity in a university, company, R+D+i center or in a research organization established in Spain. We obtain your visa and authorization valid to work in all the Spanish territory, being able to incorporate the researcher in less than a month.

From: 320,00


This permit is valid for researchers who have a firm offer of work for research in Spain or for universities, companies and R+D+i centers whose work center is in Spanish territory and want to incorporate a non-EU researcher to their work teams or laboratories.

It is important to highlight that, within the framework of this residence and work permit for research, we can apply jointly or successively for the residence permit for companions of the holder, that is to say, we can apply for the permit for spouses and children at the same time of applying for it for the researcher or at a later time. If the researcher is accompanied by a dependent ascendant, i.e. his or her father or mother, we can also process the residence and work permit for them since they can be authorized through this permit.

Once we receive the formal request for this service, we will assign you a Campsussing assistant who will coordinate the immigration process with the hiring Institution and with the researcher to be hired, working with both of them to carry out all the procedures and formalities to be done in time, both in origin and already in Spain. The Campsussing assistant will be responsible for indicating at all times all the steps to be followed, organizing all the necessary documentation so that the application and formalities can be carried out successfully in the shortest possible time.

This service includes the assistance and accompaniment from the moment of the permit application until the reception of the resolution to the application. All the incidences suffered in the process, such as the updating of documentation, response to requests from the Ministry of Migration, requirements of the Administration or others are included. In addition, once the residence and work permit is granted, it is included that your Campussing assistant helps and assists you with the processing of your visa in your country of origin and with the processing of the application and obtaining of your foreigner identification card (TIE) once in Spain. Both for initial applications and for renewals of contracted services. What are you waiting for? Contract it and live a smart mobility!


If you are a University, business entity, R+D+i center or research organization, you can benefit from a regime that allows you to hire a researcher in record time and the selected researcher or worker to reside in Spain legally for a period of up to two years, renewable.

We can help you obtain the permit whether the researcher to be hired is abroad or in Spain, in the latter case as long as he/she is in a legal situation. The processes to be followed are different depending on whether the candidate is in Spain or not, but we process both with agility so that they can be incorporated in a timely manner. We can carry out this process with obtaining authorizations and incorporation of the researcher in up to one month. In addition, we will provide full support throughout the entire process to the researcher by centralizing the entire immigration process and related incidents so that your team does not have to devote resources to the process. We cover the entire process, from the time the new employee is selected until he/she joins the job.
