We issue permanent residence in Spain, opportunities for Russians.
Because of the crisis, Russians are increasingly thinking about emigration. Of particular interest is the sunny and friendly Spain, which left many so pleasant impressions of tourist trips. However, resting is one thing, and getting permanent residence in Spain is quite another.
The standard of living in Spain, which has membership in the EU, is higher than the domestic one. In absolute terms, it looks like this:
According to UN estimates, in the list of states for the nominal value of GDP per person, Spain ranked 13th. For comparison: Australia – 12, Canada – 11, Russia – 8, France – 5. But it is not the amount of money in the country, but their distribution that is important. According to the IMF estimates, in the ranking of countries compiled on the basis of the purchasing power of the population, Spain was in 33 place in 2014, while Russia – by 45, France – by 25, Canada by 19, Australia by 13.
Prospects for employment.
sales and service personnel – 800 � per month; agrarians – 500-800; builders and working professions (men) – 800-1200; office workers – about 700; specialists after the university, IT managers – 1200-2000.
By the standards of Russia, the inhabitants of Spain earn little, and a high standard of living is explained by low prices. The mentality makes itself felt: unlike the workaholic Germans, the Spaniards do not like to overwork.
What is only the tradition of the afternoon siesta (a long break and an after-dinner sleep), with which the state and corporations are trying to fight. The indigenous population is looking not so much for the highly paid as for the light and comfortable work, leaving the opportunity to live for pleasure. The Spaniards themselves speak about quality, not about the standard of living.
Despite this, it is difficult to find work for natives of Russia in Spain. To officially employ a foreigner, the employer must obtain permission from the Ministry of Labor. This is possible only if the Spanish national does not claim to be in the field. There are also nuances: when employing foreigners, citizens of the EU prefer; if Romanians or Bulgarians pretend to take the place, they will prefer them, and not Russians; without the knowledge of Spanish or at least English, it is almost impossible to find a job; diplomas of Russia are not listed.
Given the unemployment rate in Spain (more than 20%), it is difficult to officially get unskilled jobs to Russian citizens. And if it works, you’ll have to work for a pittance. To formalize the employment relationship, the Spanish authorities are strictly enforced – the fine for illegals is up to 15 000 �. Therefore, even for seasonal work in agriculture, a contract and medical insurance are issued. Unofficial employment hampers legalization: there is often no way to justify the need for permanent residence in Spain.
