Obtain your arraigo or temporary residence due to exceptional circumstances

This type of permit is aimed at all those foreigners who are living in Spain illegally or irregularly, but with sufficient family, social or work roots so that it can be considered that their life is linked to Spain. Through this process they can regularise their migratory situation in our country.

  • Social arraigo.
  • Employment arraigo.
  • Family arraigo.
