Visas in the World

Visas in the World

A visa (from the Latin charta visa, meaning "paper that has been seen") is a conditional authorisation granted by a territory to a foreigner, allowing them to enter, remain within, or to leave that territory. Visas typically may include limits on the duration of the foreigner's stay, areas within the country they may enter, the dates they may enter, the number of permitted visits or an individual's right to work in the country in question. Visas are associated with the request for permission to enter a territory and thus are, in most countries, distinct from actual formal permission for an alien to enter and remain in the country. In each instance, a visa is subject to entry permission by an immigration official at the time of actual entry, and can be revoked at any time. A visa most commonly takes the form of a sticker endorsed in the applicant's passport or other travel document.

Visa applications in advance of arrival give countries a chance to consider the applicant's circumstances, such as financial security, reason for travel, and details of previous visits to the country. Visitors may also be required to undergo and pass security or health checks upon arrival at the port of entry. Some countries require that their citizens, as well as foreign travellers, obtain an "exit visa" to be allowed to leave the country.

History 

In western Europe in the late 19th century and early 20th century, passports and visas were not generally necessary for moving from one country to another. The relatively high speed and large movements of people travelling by train would have caused bottlenecks if regular passport controls had been used. Passports and visas became usually necessary as travel documents only after World War I. Long before that, in ancient times, passports and visas were usually the same type of travel documents. In the modern world, visas have become separate secondary travel documents, with passports acting as the primary travel documents.

Conditions of issue

Some visas can be granted on arrival or by prior application at the country's embassy or consulate, or through a private visa service specialist who is specialised in the issuance of international travel documents. These agencies are authorised by the foreign authority, embassy, or consulate to represent international travellers who are unable or unwilling to travel to the embassy and apply in person. Private visa and passport services collect an additional fee for verifying customer applications, supporting documents, and submitting them to the appropriate authority. If there is no embassy or consulate in one's home country, then one would have to travel to a third country (or apply by post) and try to get a visa issued there. Alternatively, in such cases visas may be pre-arranged for collection on arrival at the border. The need or absence of need of a visa generally depends on the citizenship of the applicant, the intended duration of the stay, and the activities that the applicant may wish to undertake in the country he visits; these may delineate different formal categories of visas, with different issue conditions. The issuing authority, usually a branch of the country's foreign ministry or department (e.g. U.S. State Department), and typically consular affairs officers, may request appropriate documentation from the applicant. This may include proof that the applicant is able to support himself in the host country (lodging, food), proof that the person hosting the applicant in his or her home really exists and has sufficient room for hosting the applicant, proof that the applicant has obtained health and evacuation insurance, etc. Some countries ask for proof of health status, especially for long-term visas; some countries deny such visas to persons with certain illnesses, such as AIDS. The exact conditions depend on the country and category of visa. Notable examples of countries requiring HIV tests of long-term residents are Russia and Uzbekistan. In Uzbekistan, however, the HIV test requirement is sometimes not strictly enforced. Other countries require a medical test that includes an HIV test, even for a short-term tourism visa. For example, Cuban citizens and international exchange students require such a test approved by a medical authority to enter Chilean territory. The issuing authority may also require applicants to attest that they have no criminal convictions, or that they not participate in certain activities (like prostitution or drug trafficking). Some countries will deny visas if travellers' passports show evidence of citizenship of, or travel to, a country that is considered hostile by that country. For example, some Arabic-oriented countries will not issue visas to nationals of Israel and those whose passports bear evidence of visiting Israel. Many countries frequently demand strong evidence of intent to return to the home country, if the visa is for a temporary stay, due to potential unwanted illegal immigration.

Types

Each country typically has a multitude of categories of visas with various names. The most common types and names of visas include:

By purpose

Transit visas

For passing through the country of issue to a destination outside that country. Validity of transit visas are usually limited by short terms such as several hours to ten days depending on the size of the country or the circumstances of a particular transit itinerary.
  • Airside transit visa, required by some countries for passing through their airports even without going through passport control.
  • Crew member, steward or driver visa, issued to persons employed or trained on aircraft, vessels, trains, trucks, buses and any other means of international transportation, or ships fishing in international waters.

Short-stay or visitor visas

For short visits to the visited country. Many countries differentiate between different reasons for these visits, such as:
  • Private visa, for private visits by invitation from residents of the visited country.
  • Tourist visa, for a limited period of leisure travel, no business activities allowed.
  • Visa for medical reasons, for undertaking diagnostics or a course of treatment in the visited country's hospitals or other medical facilities.
  • Business visa, for engaging in commerce in the country. These visas generally preclude permanent employment, for which a work visa would be required.
  • Working holiday visa, for individuals travelling between nations offering a working holiday program, allowing young people to undertake temporary work while travelling.
  • Athletic or artistic visa, issued to athletes and performing artists (and their supporting staff) performing at competitions, concerts, shows and other events.
    • Cultural exchange visa, usually issued to athletes and performing artists participating in a cultural exchange program.
  • Refugee visa, issued to persons fleeing the dangers of persecution, a war or a natural disaster.
  • Pilgrimage visa: this type of visa is mainly issued to those intending to visit religious destinations, as for example in Saudi Arabia or Iran, and to take part in particular religious ceremonies. Such visas can usually be obtained relatively quickly and at low cost; those using them are usually permitted to travel only as a group, however. The best example is Hajj visas for Saudi Arabia.
  • Digital nomad visa, for digital nomads who want to temporarily reside in a country while performing remote work. Thailand launched its SMART Visa, targeted at high expertise foreigners and entrepreneurs to stay a longer time in Thailand, with online applications for the visa being planned for late 2018. Estonia has also announced plans for a digital nomad visa, after the launch of its e-Residency program.

Long-stay visas

Visas valid for long term stays of a specific duration include:
  • Student visa (F-1 in the United States), which allows its holder to study at an institution of higher learning in the issuing country. The F-2 visa allows the student's dependents to accompany them in the United States.
    • Research visa, for students doing fieldwork in the host country.
  • Temporary worker visa, for approved employment in the host country. These are generally more difficult to obtain but valid for longer periods of time than a business visa. Examples of these are the United States' H-1B and L-1 visas. Depending on a particular country, the status of temporary worker may or may not evolve into the status of permanent resident or to naturalization.
    • Journalist visa, which some countries require of people in that occupation when travelling for their respective news organizations. Countries that insist on this include Cuba, China, Iran, Japan, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, the United States (I-visa) and Zimbabwe.
  • Residence visa, granted to people obtaining long-term residence in the host country. In some countries, such as New Zealand, long-term residence is a necessary step to obtain the status of a permanent resident.
  • Asylum visa, issued to people who have suffered or reasonably fear persecution in their own country due to their political activities or opinion, or features, or association with a social group; or were exiled from their own country.

Immigrant visas

Granted for those intending to settle permanently in the issuing country (obtain the status of a permanent resident with a prospect of possible naturalization in the future):
  • Spouse visa or partner visa, granted to the spouse, civil partner or de facto partner of a resident or citizen of a given country to enable the couple to settle in that country.
  • Marriage visa, granted for a limited period before intended marriage or civil partnership based on a proven relationship with a citizen of the destination country. For example, a German woman wishing to marry an American man would obtain a Fiancée Visa (also known as a K-1 visa) to allow her to enter the United States. A K1 Fiancée Visa is valid for four months from the date of its approval.
  • Pensioner visa (also known as retiree visa or retirement visa), issued by a limited number of countries (Australia, Argentina, Thailand, Panama, etc.), to those who can demonstrate a foreign source of income and who do not intend to work in the issuing country. Age limits apply in some cases.

Official visas

These are granted to officials doing jobs for their governments, or otherwise representing their countries in the host country, such as the personnel of diplomatic missions.
  • Diplomatic visas are normally only available to bearers of diplomatic passports.
  • Courtesy visas are issued to representatives of foreign governments or international organizations who do not qualify for diplomatic status but do merit expedited, courteous treatment – an example of this is Australia's special purpose visa.

By method of issue

Normally visa applications are made at and collected from a consulate, embassy or other diplomatic mission.

On-arrival visas

Also known as visas on arrival (VOA), they are granted at a port of entry. This is distinct from visa-free entry, where no visa is required, as the visitor must still obtain the visa on arrival before proceeding to immigration control.
  • Almost all countries will consider issuing a visa (or another document to the same effect) on arrival to a visitor arriving in unforeseen exceptional circumstances.
  • Some countries issue visas on arrival to special categories of travellers, such as seafarers or air crew.
  • Some countries issue them to regular visitors; there often are restrictions.

Electronic visas

An electronic visa (e-Visa or eVisa) is stored in a computer and is linked to the passport number so no label, sticker or stamp is placed in the passport before travel. The application is done over the internet, and the receipt acts as a visa, which can be printed or stored on a mobile device.

Entry and duration period

Visas can also be single-entry, which means the visa is cancelled as soon as the holder leaves the country; double-entry, or multiple-entry, which permits double or multiple entries into the country with the same visa. Countries may also issue re-entry permits that allow temporarily leaving the country without invalidating the visa. Even a business visa will normally not allow the holder to work in the host country without an additional work permit. Once issued, a visa will typically have to be used within a certain period of time. With some countries, the validity of a visa is not the same as the authorised period of stay. The visa validity then indicates the time period when entry is permitted into the country. For example, if a visa has been issued to begin on January 1 and to expire on March 30, and the typical authorised period of stay in a country is 90 days, then the 90-day authorised stay starts on the day the passenger enters the country (entrance has to be between 1 January and 30 March). Thus, the latest day the traveller could conceivably stay in the issuing country is 1 July (if the traveller entered on 30 March). This interpretation of visas is common in the Americas. With other countries, a person may not stay beyond the period of validity of their visa, which is usually set within the period of validity of their passport. The visa may also limit the total number of days the visitor may spend in the applicable territory within the period of validity. This interpretation of visa periods is common in Europe. Once in the country, the validity period of a visa or authorised stay can often be extended for a fee at the discretion of immigration authorities. Overstaying a period of authorised stay given by the immigration officers is considered illegal immigration even if the visa validity period isn't over (i.e., for multiple entry visas) and a form of being "out of status" and the offender may be fined, prosecuted, deported, or even blacklisted from entering the country again. Entering a country without a valid visa or visa exemption may result in detention and removal (deportation or exclusion) from the country. Undertaking activities that are not authorised by the status of entry (for example, working while possessing a non-worker tourist status) can result in the individual being deemed liable for deportation—commonly referred to as an illegal alien. Such violation is not a violation of a visa, despite the common misuse of the phrase, but a violation of status; hence the term "out of status". Even having a visa does not guarantee entry to the host country. The border crossing authorities make the final determination to allow entry, and may even cancel a visa at the border if the alien cannot demonstrate to their satisfaction that they will abide by the status their visa grants them. Some countries that do not require visas for short stays may require a long-stay visa for those who intend to apply for a residence permit. For example, the EU does not require a visa of citizens of many countries for stays under 90 days, but its member states require a long-stay visa of such citizens for longer stays.

Visa extensions

Many countries have a mechanism to allow the holder of a visa to apply to extend a visa. In Denmark, a visa holder can apply to the Danish Immigration Service for a Residence Permit after they have arrived in the country. In the United Kingdom, applications can be made to UK Visas and Immigration. In certain circumstances, it is not possible for the holder of the visa to do this, either because the country does not have a mechanism to prolong visas or, most likely, because the holder of the visa is using a short stay visa to live in a country.

Visa run

Some foreign visitors sometimes engage in what is known as a visa run: leaving a country—usually to a neighbouring country—for a short period just before the permitted length of stay expires, then returning to the first country to get a new entry stamp in order to extend their stay ("reset the clock"). Despite the name, a visa run is usually done with a passport that can be used for entry without a visa. Visa runs are frowned upon by immigration authorities as such acts may signify that the foreigner wishes to reside permanently and might also work in that country; purposes that visitors are prohibited from engaging in and usually require an immigrant visa or a work visa. Immigration officers may deny re-entry to visitors suspected of engaging in prohibited activities, especially when they have done repeated visa runs and have no evidence of spending reasonable time in their home countries or countries where they have the right to reside and work. To combat visa runs, some countries have limits on how long visitors can spend in the country without a visa, as well as how much time they have to stay out before "resetting the clock". For example, Schengen countries impose a maximum limit for visitors of 90 days in any 180-day period. Some countries do not "reset the clock" when a visitor comes back after visiting a neighbouring country. For example, the United States does not give visitors a new period of stay when they come back from visiting Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean; instead they are readmitted to the United States for the remaining days granted on their initial entry. Some other countries, e.g. Thailand, allow visitors who arrive by land from neighbouring countries a shorter length of stay than those who arrive by air. In some cases, a visa run is necessary to activate new visas or change the immigration status of a person. An example would be leaving a country and then returning immediately to activate a newly issued work visa before a person can legally work.

Visa refusal

In general, an applicant may be refused a visa if he or she does not meet the requirements for admission or entry under that country's immigration laws. More specifically, a visa may be denied or refused when the applicant:
  • has committed fraud, deception or misrepresentation in his or her current application as well as in a previous application
  • has obtained a criminal record, has been arrested, or has criminal charges pending
  • is considered to be a threat to national security
  • does not have a good moral character
  • has previous visa/immigration violations (even if the violations didn't happen in the country the applicant is seeking a visa for)
  • had their previous visa application(s) or application for immigration benefits refused and cannot prove that the reasons for the previous refusals no longer exist or are not applicable any more (even if the refusals didn't previously happen in the country the applicant is seeking a visa for)
  • cannot prove to have strong ties to their current country of nationality or residence (for those who are applying for temporary or non-immigrant visas)
  • intends to reside or work permanently in the country she/he will visit if not applying for an immigrant or work visa respectively
  • fails to demonstrate intent to return (for non-immigrants)
  • fails to provide sufficient evidence/documents to prove eligibility for the visa sought after
  • does not have a legitimate reason for the journey
  • does not have adequate means of financial support for themselves or family
  • does not have adequate medical insurance, especially if engaging in high risk activities (e.g. rock climbing, skiing, etc)
  • does not have travel arrangements (i.e. transport and lodging) in the destination country
  • does not have health/travel insurance valid for the destination and the duration of stay
  • is a citizen of a country to which the destination country is hostile or at war with
  • has previously visited, or intends to visit, a country to which the destination country is hostile
  • has a communicable disease, such as tuberculosis or ebola, or a sexually transmitted disease
  • has a passport that expires too soon
  • didn't use a previously issued visa at all without a valid reason (e.g., a trip cancellation due to a family emergency)
Even if a traveller does not need a visa, the aforementioned criteria can also be used by border control officials to refuse the traveller entry into the country in question.

Visa policies

The main reasons states impose visa restrictions on foreign nationals are to curb illegal immigration, security concerns, and reciprocity for visa restrictions imposed on their own nationals. Typically, nations impose visa restrictions on citizens of poorer countries, along with politically unstable and undemocratic ones, as it is considered more likely that people from these countries will seek to illegally immigrate. Visa restrictions may also be imposed when nationals of another country are perceived as likelier to be terrorists or criminals, or by autocratic regimes that perceive foreign influence to be a threat to their rule. According to Professor Eric Neumayer of the London School of Economics:
"The poorer, the less democratic and the more exposed to armed political conflict the target country is, the more likely that visa restrictions are in place against its passport holders. The same is true for countries whose nationals have been major perpetrators of terrorist acts in the past".
Some countries apply the principle of reciprocity in their visa policy. A country's visa policy is called 'reciprocal' if it imposes visa requirement against citizens of all the countries that impose visa requirements against its own citizens. The opposite is rarely true: a country rarely lifts visa requirements against citizens of all the countries that also lift visa requirements against its own citizens, unless a prior bilateral agreement has been made. A fee may be charged for issuing a visa; these are often also reciprocal—hence, if country A charges country B's citizens US$50 for a visa, country B will often also charge the same amount for country A's visitors. The fee charged may also be at the discretion of each embassy. A similar reciprocity often applies to the duration of the visa (the period in which one is permitted to request entry of the country) and the number of entries one can attempt with the visa. Other restrictions, such as requiring fingerprints and photographs, may also be reciprocated. Expedited processing of the visa application for some countries will generally incur additional charges. Government authorities usually impose administrative entry restrictions on foreign citizens in three ways - countries whose nationals may enter without a visa, countries whose nationals may obtain a visa on arrival and countries whose nationals require a visa in advance. Nationals who require a visa in advance are usually advised to obtain them at a diplomatic mission of their destination country. Several countries allow nationals of countries that require a visa to obtain them online. The following table lists visa policies of all countries by the number of foreign nationalities that may enter that country for tourism without a visa or by obtaining a visa on arrival with normal passport. It also notes countries that issue electronic visas to certain nationalities. Symbol "+" indicates a country that limits the visa-free regime negatively by only listing nationals who require a visa, thus the number represents the number of UN member states reduced by the number of nationals who require a visa and "+" stands for all possible non-UN member state nationals that might also not require a visa. "N/A" indicates countries that have contradictory information on its official websites or information supplied by the Government to IATA. Some countries that allow visa on arrival do so only at a limited number of entry points. Some countries such as the European Union member states have a qualitatively different visa regime between each other as it also includes freedom of movement.

Visa exemption agreements

Possession of a valid visa is a condition for entry into many countries, and exemption schemes exist. In some cases visa-free entry may be granted to holders of diplomatic passports even as visas are required by normal passport holders. Some countries have reciprocal agreements such that a visa is not needed under certain conditions, e.g., when the visit is for tourism and for a relatively short period. Such reciprocal agreements may stem from common membership in international organizations or a shared heritage:
  • All citizens of European Union (EU) and EFTA member countries can travel to and stay in all other EU and EFTA countries without a visa. See Four Freedoms (European Union) and Citizenship of the European Union.
  • The United States Visa Waiver Program allows citizens of 38 countries to travel to the United States without a visa (although a pre-trip entry permission, ESTA, is needed).
  • Any Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) citizen can enter and stay as long as required in any other GCC member state.
  • All citizens of members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), excluding those defined by law as undesirable aliens, may enter and stay without a visa in any member state for a maximum period of 90 days. The only requirement is a valid travel document and international vaccination certificates.
  • Nationals of the East African Community member states do not need visas for entry into any of the member states.
  • Some countries in the Commonwealth do not require tourist visas of citizens of other Commonwealth countries.
  • Citizens of member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations do not require tourist visas to visit another member state, with the exception of Myanmar. Until 2009, Burmese citizens were required to have visas to enter all other ASEAN countries. Following the implementation of visa exemption agreements with the other ASEAN countries, in 2016 Burmese citizens are only required to have visas to enter Malaysia and Singapore. Myanmar and Singapore had agreed on a visa exemption scheme set to be implemented on 1 December 2016. ASEAN citizens are entitled to use the Burmese visa on arrival facility.
  • Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) member states mutually allow their citizens to enter visa-free, at least for short stays. There are exceptions between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
  • Nepal and India allow their citizens to enter, live and work in each other's countries due to the Indo-Nepal friendship treaty of 1951. Indians do not require a visa or passport to travel to Bhutan and are only required to obtain passes at the border checkpoints, whilst Bhutan nationals holding a valid Bhutanese passport are authorised to enter India without a visa.
Other countries may unilaterally grant visa-free entry to nationals of certain countries to facilitate tourism, promote business, or even to cut expenses on maintaining consular posts abroad. Some of the considerations for a country to grant visa-free entry to another country include (but are not limited to):
  • being a low security risk for the country potentially granting visa-free entry
  • diplomatic relationship between two countries
  • conditions in the visitor's home country as compared to the host country
  • having a low risk of overstaying or violating visa terms in the country potentially granting visa-free entry
To have a smaller worldwide diplomatic staff, some countries rely on other country's (or countries') judgments when issuing visas. For example, Mexico allows citizens of all countries to enter without Mexican visas if they possess a valid American visa that has already been used. Costa Rica accepts valid visas of Schengen/EU countries, Canada, Japan, South Korea and the United States (if valid for at least 3 months on date of arrival). The ultimate example of such reliance is Andorra, which imposes no visa requirements of its own because it has no international airport and is inaccessible by land without passing through the territory of either France or Spain and is thus "protected" by the Schengen visa system. Visa-free travel between countries also occurs in all cases where passports (or passport-replacing documents such as laissez-passer) are not needed for such travel. As of 2019, the Henley & Partners passport index ranks the Japanese, Singaporean and South Korean passports as the ones with the most visa exemptions by other nations, allowing holders of those passports to visit 189 countries without obtaining a visa in advance of arrival. However, as of 6 June 2019, the Passport Index ranks the United Arab Emirates passport as the one with the most visa exemptions by other nations, allowing holders of this passport to visit 173 countries without obtaining a visa in advance of arrival.

Spain: The Power of the Spanish Passport

The Power of the Spanish Passport

As of June 2019, Spanish citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 186 (of 189 as the maximum) countries and territories, ranking the ordinary Spanish passport 4th in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley visa restrictions index.

Spain: Easy guide to Understanding the Lease Regulation

Understanding the Lease regulation in Spain

The regulation for renting a property may vary a great deal from country to country. My Lawyer Abroad International Lawyers Network offers you all of the expertise and experience required so that you, whether as a seller or buyer, can feel secure and satisfied throughout the entire process of your Spanish property transaction.

The Ministry of Development together with the Association of Property Registrars publish from time to time simple and brief explicative guides with the purpose to help individuals when buying or leasing a home in Spain.

The housing lease contract is regulated by Law 29/1994, of November 24, on Urban Leases (LAU), which means that such contract is intended to meet the need for permanent housing of the lessee, his spouse or his dependent children These contracts, in accordance with art. 4 are governed by the covenants, clauses and conditions voluntarily agreed by the parties, within the framework of what is established in said law and, additionally, by the Civil Code. However, there are some rules that are mandatory, such as those related to the scope of the Law (Title I), the bond and the formalization of the contract (Title IV). In addition, those clauses that, despite having been agreed by the parties, or in the absence of an agreement between them, harm the lessee or the sub-tenant, in the terms established by Title II, will be considered void and not considered. The LAU does not regulate the tourist housing contract, which is governed by its own regulations in this area (in general, autonomous). Recently, the Royal Decree-Law 7/2019, of March 1, on urgent measures regarding housing and rental has increased control of the community of neighbors over the operation of a building as a tourist home. Currently, the agreement of three fifths of the owners of a community of neighbors is enough to prevent a house from being used for tourist rental purposes and, in addition, the community can charge the apartment or apartment for tourist use until 20 percent of the annual expenses of the community, in parallel to the quota that corresponds to each owner, although this type of agreements will not have retroactive effects on those homes that are already destined for this activity, and have their respective authorizations administrative in force. To these limitations at the community level of owners, all those that exist by virtue of autonomous legislation or specific municipal ordinances are joined. Nor is the room rental agreement governed by the LAU, although the rules applicable to the sublease of a room of a rental apartment are contained therein. Subletting of rooms as a permanent residence is legal provided that the lessor has the prior consent. The lessee must make a contract with each sub-tenant specifying the rented areas and the required rules of living together. The sublet will have the same duration as the initial lease signed between the owner and the tenant and the price may not exceed the agreed for the lease. Finally, the LAU identifies as leases other than housing, and therefore with its own legal regime within it, those held by season (summer, for studies, or any other), and those whose purpose is to exercise an activity: industrial, commercial, artisanal, professional, recreational, welfare, cultural or educational, that is, traditional business premises and similar.

GUIDANCE CONTENT FOR THE PREPARATION OF A HOUSING LEASE AGREEMENT

Below are some basic clarifications to understand the clauses that usually appear in contracts and some examples thereof. Regardless of the contract model used, many of the questions that may arise could be resolved with the mention of the legal regulation provided in the following sections.

1.- THE CONTRACTING PARTIES They are the lessor and the tenant, who can act on their own behalf or through duly accredited representation. The landlord, colloquially known as "landlord" is the owner of a home that transfers its use to another in exchange for money. The lessee, also known colloquially as "tenant" is the person who has the right to use a property belonging to another paying a remuneration for it. Both the lessor and the lessee can be natural or legal persons. The two parties, lessor and tenant, must be perfectly identified in the contract and, especially in the case of the tenant, all members of the family unit that will live in the leased property. This will avoid problems of interpretation of the existence of possible subleases of rooms not expressly authorized and in writing by the lessor.

2.- OBJECT OF THE CONTRACT The rented home must be clearly identified (full address and surface) and its more specific characteristics, such as the annexes (garage, storage room, etc.), as well as making it clear whether or not these are included in the contract. The cadastral reference and the registration in the Property Registry must also be recorded. If the house is rented furnished, it is recommended to attach an inventory of the furniture to the contract. 3. RENTAL DURATION The duration will be that freely agreed by the parties according to their needs. If nothing is said in the contract, it will be understood that the duration is one year (art. 9.2 LAU). However, RDL 7/2019 has established that, if the term initially agreed was less than five years - when the lessee is a natural person - or seven - if it were a legal person - the contract will be automatically and obligatorily extended for annual terms until arriving at those 5 or 7 years, respectively. This extension will not occur if the tenant communicates to the lessor at least 30 days before the end of the agreed term or any of its annual extensions its intention not to renew. It is advisable to collect in the contract when the term begins: if from the day of the date of the contract (signature), or from the occupation of the house if it were later than that day. 4. FACULTY OF RECOVERING HOUSING BY THE LESSOR (The inclusion of this clause is optional). It will be included in the event that the lessor natural person foresees that he will need housing for himself or his relatives in the first degree for the next 5 years. 5. FACULTY OF WITHDRAWAL BY THE LESSEE (The inclusion of this clause is optional). The LAU recognizes the possibility of withdrawing from the contract, once at least six months have elapsed and provided that it is communicated to the lessor at least thirty days in advance. The parties may agree in the contract that in these cases the lessee indemnifies the lessor with an amount equivalent to a monthly payment of the rent in force for each year of the contract that remains to be fulfilled. Time periods of less than one year would result in the proportional part of the compensation (art. 11 LAU). The exercise of this action by the lessee shall not harm the spouse who lived with said lessee, if he had not expressed his agreement, so that the lease would continue to benefit the same (art. 12.1 LAU). The same rule applies in the case of separation, divorce or annulment of the tenant's marriage (art. 15 LAU). 6. TACIT EXTENSION Although the tacit extension is not expressly agreed upon, it will be applicable in the terms established by law, but it is advisable that it be included in the contract as a specific clause. 7. PAYMENT The rent will be freely stipulated by the parties and this may include certain expenses. In particular, it is important to specify whether the general expenses for the adequate maintenance of the property, its services, taxes, charges and responsibilities that are not susceptible to individualization and that correspond to the leased dwelling or its accessories, as well as who will correspond the community. During the first five years of the contract, these expenses may only be increased, by agreement of the parties, annually, and never by a percentage greater than double that in which the rent may be increased. In addition, and as a novel rule, RDL 7/2019 imposes on the landlord, when it is a legal entity, the costs of real estate management and formalization of the contract. As for the payment, it will be monthly, unless otherwise agreed and will be made on the first seven days of the month, in the place and by the procedure agreed by the parties or, failing that, in cash and in the leased dwelling. The lessor is obliged to deliver a payment receipt to the lessee, unless it has been agreed that it should be carried out through a procedure that allows proof of compliance with this obligation (for example, bank transfer) and may not require advance payment in any case of more than one monthly rent. As a special rule, the parties may agree that, during a certain period of time, the obligation to pay the rent can be totally or partially replaced by the tenant's commitment to reform or rehabilitate the property in the terms and conditions that both agree. (Art. 17 LAU). 8. PAYMENT UPDATE (The inclusion of this clause is optional) Unless there is an express agreement between the parties, the rent is not updated. However, it is usual for this clause to exist, and in this case, it should be remembered that: - During the term of the contract, the rent may only be updated by the lessor or the lessee, in the terms agreed by the parties, on the date on which each year of the contract is fulfilled. - The parties may agree on the methodology to update the rent. If they do not do so, the income for each annuity will be updated by reference to the annual variation of the Competitiveness Guarantee Index at the date of each update, taking as the reference month for it the one corresponding to the last index that was published on the update date of the contract. - The increase produced as a result of the annual update of the income may not exceed the result of applying the percentage variation experienced by the Consumer Price Index at the date of each update, taking as the reference month for it the one corresponding to the last index that was published on the contract update date. That is, this CPI has a maximum character, even if other methods have been established to update the rent. - The updated rent will be payable to the lessee from the month following that in which the interested party notifies the other party in writing, expressing the percentage of alteration applied and accompanying, if the lessee required, the timely certification of the National Institute of Statistics. The notification made by note on the receipt of the monthly payment of the previous payment will be valid (art. 18 LAU). 9. WORK OF THE LESSEE IN THE HOUSING The lessee cannot carry out works that modify the configuration of the dwelling or its accessories without the written consent of the lessor. In a special way there is a prohibition to carry out works that cause a decrease in the stability or security of the home. If works are carried out without the aforementioned consent, the lessor will have the right to terminate the contract, in addition to requiring the tenant to replace things to the previous state or to keep the modification made without it being able to claim compensation for the expenses incurred. If the works carried out cause a decrease in the stability of the building or the security of the house or its accessories, the lessor may immediately demand the replacement of the things to the previous state (art. 23 LAU). Special mention must be made to the works that tenants need to perform inside the home so that it can be used properly and according to disability or age over seventy years, by them or by their spouse, the person or relatives with whom you live permanently. Provided that such works do not affect common elements or services of the building or cause a decrease in its stability or security, it will be sufficient to notify such circumstance in writing to the lessor. But according to art. 24 LAU, in these cases, the lessee will be obliged to replace the home to the previous state, if required by the lessor, when the contract ends. All small repairs required by wear and tear for the ordinary use of the home will be the responsibility of the lessee (art. 21 LAU). The jurisprudence demonstrates the extent to which there are discrepancies between lessors and lessees in relation to this concept. However, there is usually a consensus that this article intends to cover the daily damages that are linked to the ordinary maintenance of a house, such as the clogging of a drain, the repair of a cistern, or the breaks caused by habitual use and permanent things, as would be the case of a breakdown in the blind collection system. 10. LESSOR'S WORKS The lessor is obliged to carry out, without the right to raise the rent, all the repairs that are necessary to keep the house in habitability conditions to serve the agreed use, except when the deterioration of the repair in question is attributable to the lessee (One would be talking about relevant material damages caused by the lessee, guilty or negligently, not mere repairs related to the ordinary maintenance of the house). For these purposes, the lessee will inform you, in the shortest possible time, the need for such repairs and may make those that are urgent to avoid imminent damage or serious discomfort, prior notification to the lessor. In this case, you may immediately request the amount (art. 21 LAU). The lessor's obligation to repair has its limit in the destruction of the home for cause not attributable to it. A special case is that of conservation works that cannot be reasonably deferred until the end of the lease. In such cases, the lessee is obliged to bear them, no matter how much they are annoying or even when they mean depriving him of a part of the house. In the latter case, if the works last more than twenty days, the rent must be reduced in proportion to the part of the house that the tenant cannot use. To carry out the works referred to in this paragraph, the lessor is obliged to notify the lessee in writing, at least three months in advance, the nature of these works, the start date, their duration and the foreseeable cost. During the period of one month from said notification, the lessee can withdraw from the contract and in such case the lease will be extinguished within two months from said withdrawal. During those two months the works cannot begin. The withdrawal has as limit that the works do not affect or irrelevantly affect the leased housing. Just as the lessee who supports the works is entitled to a reduction of the rent in proportion to the part of the house of which he is deprived because of them, he can also demand compensation for the expenses that the works require him to carry out (Art. 22 LAU). The realization by the lessor of improvement works, after five years of the contract, or seven years if the lessor were a legal entity, will give him the right, unless otherwise agreed, to raise the annual income in the amount resulting from apply to the capital invested in the improvement, the legal interest rate of the money at the time of completion of the works increased by three points, without exceeding the twenty percent increase in the current income at that time. For the calculation of the invested capital, the public subsidies obtained for the completion of the work must be discounted. The increase in income will occur from the month following the one in which, once the works are finished, the landlord notifies the tenant in writing of the amount of that, detailing the calculations that lead to its determination and providing copies of the documents that result The cost of the works carried out. 11. BOND Both the legal bond and, where appropriate, the supplementary guarantee, are established as a guarantee of the legal and contractual obligations of the lessee. The deposit is an amount equivalent to a monthly rent and must be paid to the conclusion of the contract, mandatory and in cash. During the first five years of the contract, or during the first seven years if the lessor were a legal entity, the bond will not be subject to updating. However, each time the lease is extended, the lessor may require that the bond be increased, or the lessee decreases, until it becomes equal to one or two monthly payments of the current rent, as appropriate, at the time of the extension. Other elements of interest related to the bond are the following: - The balance of the deposit in cash that must be returned to the lessee at the end of the lease accrues the legal interest after one month from the delivery of the keys without having made said refund effective (Art. 36 LAU). - The lessor is obliged to make the deposit of the legal bond according to the applicable regional regulations (Records of bonds of lease contracts where they exist), and will deliver a copy of the deposit of said deposit to the lessee, at the request of this. This action is very relevant for the lessee in the event that he wishes to benefit from tax incentive programs linked to rent, since the Autonomous Communities will require said deposit in legal form to recognize said incentives. 12. ADDITIONAL GUARANTEES OR COMPLEMENTARY TO THE BOND (The inclusion of this clause is optional) The additional or complementary guarantees to the deposit in cash can be agreed by the parties, but the value of this additional guarantee may not exceed two monthly rent in the housing lease contracts of up to five years, or up to seven years if the lessor were a legal entity (art. 36 LAU). This concept could include the so-called "rental insurance", which are products designed for owners and landlords to be covered in the event of default and which also usually include legal advice and / or coverage against damage due to vandalism and / or theft. Although they can be paid, both by the owner and by the tenant, it is important to remember that, in the event that the tenant pays for it, the regulations derived from RDL 7/2019 limit the maximum cost of additional guarantees per month to two monthly payments. of bail. This limit is also applicable to the “bank guarantee” that has been common in many leases. Through them there is a payment commitment acquired by a financial entity, in the event that the tenant does not meet the agreed monthly payment. 13. TERMINATION AND RESOLUTION OF THE CONTRACT The general rule is that the breach by any of the parties of the obligations resulting from the contract will entitle the party that has fulfilled theirs to demand compliance with the obligation or to promote the termination of the contract in accordance with the provided in article 1,124 of the Civil Code. However, there are also other causes, such as the two listed below: - When carrying out conservation works or works agreed by a competent authority that make the dwelling uninhabitable. In this case, the lessee has the right to suspend the contract or withdraw from it, without any compensation in favor of the lessor (art. 26 LAU) and - When the loss of the leased property occurs due to cause not attributable to the lessor or by the firm declaration of ruin agreed by the competent authority. The LAU also speaks of cases in which the contract can be resolved, which are also a form of disappearance or termination. In the case of the lessor, he has the right to terminate the contract in full by the following causes: a) Due to the lack of payment of the rent or, where appropriate, of any of the amounts whose payment has been assumed or corresponds to the lessee. b) Due to the lack of payment of the amount of the deposit or its update. c) For the sublease or the non-concession assignment. d) For the realization of damages caused maliciously in the farm or of works not consented by the lessor when the consent of this one is necessary. e) In cases where annoying, unhealthy, harmful, dangerous or illegal activities take place in the home. f) When the dwelling ceases to be primarily destined to satisfy the permanent need for housing of the lessee or of the person who actually occupied it. For its part, the lessee can also terminate the contract for the following reasons: a) The non-performance by the lessor of the repairs referred to in article 21. b) The de facto or right disturbance that the landlord makes in the use of the home.

OTHER MATTERS OF INTEREST

1.- THE SALE OR LOSS OF THE HOUSING BY THE LESSOR. CONSEQUENCES. If this occurs during the first five years of the contract, -or seven years if the lessor were a legal entity-, the lessee will have the right, in any case, to continue in the lease until they are fulfilled, without prejudice to the power of non-renewal provides for article 9.1. (art. 13 LAU). In the case of contracts of agreed duration of more than five years, or seven years if the lessor was a legal entity, if, after the first five years of the same, or the first seven years if the lessor was a legal person, the lease shall be extinguished, unless it is registered in the Property Registry. Therefore, the purchaser of a leased home will be subrogated in the rights and obligations of the lessor during the first five years of the contract, or seven years if the previous lessor was a legal entity, even if the requirements of article 34 of The Mortgage Law. And if the agreed duration is greater than five years, or seven years if the previous lessor were a legal entity, the acquirer will be subrogated for the entire duration agreed, unless the requirements of article 34 of the Mortgage Law concur in it. In this case, the acquirer must only bear the lease for the remainder of the period of five years, or seven years in the case of a legal person, and the seller must compensate the lessee with an amount equivalent to a monthly rent. in effect for each year of the contract that, exceeding the quoted term of five years, or seven years if the previous lessor was a legal entity, remains to be fulfilled. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when the parties have stipulated that the alienation of the dwelling will extinguish the lease, the acquirer must only bear the lease for the remainder of the term of five years, or seven years if the previous lessor was Legal person referred to above. 2.- SUBROGATION. In case of death of the lessee, they can be subrogated in the contract: a) The spouse of the tenant who lived with him at the time of death. b) The person who had been living with the tenant permanently in an analogous relationship of affection to that of the spouse, regardless of their sexual orientation, for at least the two years prior to the time of death, unless they had had descendants in common, in which case mere coexistence will suffice. c) The descendants of the lessee who at the time of his death were subject to their parental rights or guardianship, or who had habitually lived with him during the preceding two years. d) The ascendants of the tenant who had habitually lived with him during the two years preceding his death. e) The tenant's brothers in whom the circumstance provided in the previous letter concurs. f) Persons other than those mentioned in the previous letters who suffer a disability equal to or greater than 65%, provided they have a relationship of kinship up to the third collateral degree with the lessee and have lived with it during the two years prior to death. If at the time of the tenant's death there are none of these persons, the lease will be extinguished and if there are doubts between them, the order established above will apply. 3.- THE PROTECTION AGAINST THE EVICTIONS. RDL 7/2019 has established a protocol for action by the administration that gives greater protection to vulnerable people and families in situations of eviction. With respect to the landlord, the non-payment of the agreed monthly payment or of pending receipts entitle to claim the termination of the contract and the eviction of the delinquent tenant. The eviction process begins with the filing of a claim of default before the trial court. Once the claim is accepted, the court notifies the tenant of the start of the process, gives it ten days to respond and sets the date and time of the oral trial, and the launch. Between the interposition of the demand and the launch can take from three to six months. As regards vulnerable persons and families in eviction situations, the systematic notification of eviction procedures to the competent social services is established. In this way, they can analyze each case and provide housing solutions or alternatives to the launch. In addition, with the new regulations are processed by verbal trial - where the exercise of defense is cheaper than in ordinary trials - all those tenancy processes whose amount does not exceed € 6,000 and the evictions with an open date are terminated.

Secure Home Purchase in Spain

Secure Home Purchase in Spain

The process for buying and selling a property may vary a great deal from country to country. My Lawyer Abroad International Lawyers Network offers you all of the expertise and experience required so that you, whether as a seller or buyer, can feel secure and satisfied throughout the entire process of your Spanish property transaction. The sale of property is usually an (officially) unregulated activity in foreign countries, yet touches upon significant financial, tax, estate planning and other ownership issues. If you are at all unsure about how to navigate the many issues this presents then please do contact an independent lawyer.   Either you decide to Contact us, or search for a Lawyer outside our Network, please do ensure you use a truly independent lawyer to handle any purchase you make.

Secure Home Purchase in Spain

The Ministry of Development together with the Association of Property Registrars have prepared a simple and brief document with the different steps and recommendations that an individual must follow when buying a home in Spain. It is a guide with information of great interest, free access and available for any national or foreign buyer with the objective of contributing to make an appropriate decision. In the Spanish legal system there are a series of documents that certify the complete legality of a home. Make sure you have all of them before to buy.

Documents: * Works license and certification of the competent technician on the adequacy from the building to the license granted and to the project approved by the Town hall. * First occupancy license of the building, certificate of occupancy or other administrative authorizations that establish that according to the law housing is habitable. * Contracts subscribed with the companies providing the basic services (electricity, water, gas and telephone) * Registration in the Land Registry of the building (new construction), as well as the existence of the insurance provided by the Law against defects or defects hidden in construction. * Certificate of the Property Registry on the legal status of the living place. * Community Statutes (or inscription in the Land Registry of the new construction deed completed and horizontal division).

Likewise, we recommend: * In the case of new construction, demand a Certificate from the Commercial Registry from the developer to prove the existence of the company, its registration data, the administrators and / or proxies, the registered office, the NIF, if there is no inscription of bankruptcy proceedings, and a statement on the nonexistence of claims, litigation or any contingency that could affect the promotion. * In the case of used housing, ask for the receipt of the last annuity of the Real Estate Tax, a certification signed by the president from the community of owners with the approval of the building secretary that realizes that the house is up to date with all payments, as well as a formal manifestation and in a public document that they do not exist rental agreements constituted on housing. When buying your home, there are a number of steps that will allow you acquire it with full guarantees: 1. Review the legal status of the home by going to the Registry of the Property.  The Land Registry is a State agency and the Registrars are public officials, who will inform you verbally for free and who have ability to issue certificates on the situation of real estate. In the Property Registry you will obtain the following information regarding each dwelling: Description of the home, location of the home, surface, share of co-ownership in horizontal property, administrative regime that could affect you (e.g. if it is an official protection home); the mortgages of the that responds to the dwelling and the term until its expiration, and figure by capital, interests and costs; the embargoes to which it is subject; any situation of litigation that affects you, as well as if there is an ongoing procedure for urban irregularity. You can also get information, if requested expressly, on the statutory regime of horizontal property, the mortgage clauses, the price that was paid in previous transmissions or the acquisition title. The Land Registry can provide you with this information in the form of simple informative note, which has a purely informative value, or of certification of domain and charges, which has the character of a public document. You can also ask the Registrar to issue an explanatory report that describe the housing registration situation. In Spain, any Land Registry can provide you with those documents, regardless of the municipality in which the living place. In addition, you can request that information by fax, regular mail and electronic and through the website of the Registrar's Association www.registradores.org. To obtain these certificates, you will be asked to identify yourself and provide some type of document that allows identifying the dwelling on which request information: either registration data: registry property number, section, municipality; data of the holder: name, surname; the corporate name, NIF / CIF; or other simple data such as street and number. 2. Study the existing mortgage charges In addition to the legality requirements, it is important to pay attention to whether the home that you are going to acquire has a mortgage (in which case this will be recorded in the Registry of the Property). If so, we recommend that: Ask the seller for a bank certification with the outstanding amount of payment. Negotiate with the bank an improvement in the interest rate. Not required to assume the mortgage loan contracted by the seller in them conditions, but you can demand your cancellation or get a new loan in another entity. 3. Go to a notary to make the sale Notaries are also independent public officials who grant faith public and that they have the obligation to advise the parties at the time of the buying and selling, informing them about the law that applies to them. In addition, they take care of write the contract according to what the parties want by adjusting it to the law, and that adopts the form of public deed. The public deed is essential to register it in the Registry of the Ownership and benefit from the security it grants and that we explain in point 5. The Notary, before authorizing the sale, will request a Nota Simple to the Property Registry, so at that time you can recheck the legal status of the property. If in doubt, ask the Notary before signing, it is his function to advise you. The contract of sale, may have been previously formalized by both parties to a private document, but will not have all legal guarantees unless elevates to public deed. In Spain, the Notary intervenes at the time of the sale, but also can advise you beforehand, just like lawyers and Agents in your country of origin. 4. Be sure to pay the taxes corresponding to the sale The sale in Spain is associated with the payment of certain taxes: In the case of buying a new home, you must pay the seller the Value Added Tax. In the case of buying a used home, you must pay the Tax of Patrimonial Transmissions through one of the banking entities identified by the Administration. In both cases, if you buy through a mortgage you must satisfy the Tax of Documented Legal Acts in an account of the Public Treasury through any  collaborating banks. 5. Register as a homeowner in the Land Registry Once you have made the transaction and paid the taxes, go to the Registry of Property corresponding to the location of the house to register. The Registration is not mandatory, but if registered, the buyer will be fully protected as owner, because of the presumption of ownership. What is recorded in the Registry is presumed true and could only be modified by a judge. No one may claim against you a right with respect to housing that it is not already recorded in the Registry at the time of the sale and if someone you want to register a document you could only do it with your consent or by a judicial procedure in which he was a party. You will be protected against the creditors of the seller and against any load that could appear without being registered in the Registry. You would be protected even if a judge determined that the contract for  which who sold the house you acquired it is void for a cause that does not appear in the Registry. In addition, you should know that according to Spanish laws the seller is bound by the hidden defects at the time of the sale of the housing and appear later, even when unknown. This means that: If the house does not meet the quality objectives in the interior space habitable set by current legislation, the buyer has the right or either to give up the sale (paying the seller the expenses that paid) or a reduction in the price, established by official experts. It may demand responsibilities from both the developer, the builder and the technical management of the building due to structural construction defects that they could appear for a period of 10 years; for damages that affect the habitability of the building for a period of 3 years; and for damages caused in Finishing defects for a period of 1 year. The Spanish law requires the responsibles to have an insurance that ensures that, where the case, to collect the corresponding compensation.
