I was wondering if there are some people here who are living in Spain with a non-lucrative visa. My wife and I are really interested in living in Spain...more specifically in Barcelona, for a year and this seems the way to go. I have been on our local Spanish Consulate (San Francisco) website numerous times and have a checklist of everything we would need to present to the consulate for the visa. We dont plan on working at all and just want to enjoy our time in Barcelona.
For people that have tried and/or received a non-lucrative visa, I was wondering if you could tell me about the process. What were some of the difficulties you encountered, how long did it take, etc? Any advice or tips or just any helpful information would be great.
