Is 70 too old to consider applying for a non lucrative Spain visa?


Need an honest opinion. Is 70 too old to consider applying for a non lucrative Spain visa?


These are the answers of some Facebook group members:

“I am seventy two and will be applying by september if things go right in selling my home in new mexico…. Go for it with all the gusto you can muster!!”

“Not at all, we are gonna do ot next year when my husband gets 70”

“Got mine a few months back at 71, and am now happily living in Spain. Go for it!”

“Nothing is too old ,my Mother came last year at 86. my Mother used NLV and S1 insurance from england ,everything went well”

“No not at all! I’m 77 and about to submit my application. Life is an adventure.”

“I just received mine – I’m 67!”

“Bloomin go for it!!! I’m 60 n hubby is 67, took me a looooooong time to realise it’s only a number! Enjoy n be happy.”

“Both over 70 and applying this year, easier than 65 as we access S1 instead of private insurance (This is only the case for retired British Nationals, other nationalities need to hire a private health insurance)”

“Hi Jean. I’m 70 and I’ve just got my NLV. Go for it.”

“Just to add – the process is fairly long and a bit stressful but once you have your visa everything is straightforward. We used immigration lawyers to guide us through it and they’ve been invaluable but it depends where in Spain you are planning to live.”

“My husband was 75 when we applied. Don’t let a number stop you.”

Based on the answers of Spainguru’s Facebook group members, it is clear that age should not be a deterrent in applying for a non lucrative Spain visa. Many individuals over the age of 70 have successfully obtained their NLV and are now living happily in Spain. It is important to note that the application process can be lengthy and stressful, but the end result is worth it. Seeking guidance from immigration lawyers can also be helpful. Ultimately, if you are considering applying for a non lucrative Spain visa and have the means to do so, age should not be a limiting factor.
