Webinar | Inglés

25Marzo 2020 de 18:00h a 19:00h

With the outbreak of coronavirus in Spain and the establishment of the Alarm State, the lives of foreigners living in Spain have been dramatically affected.

Throughout this webinar, we are set to solve how this unprecedented situation is affecting the different immigration procedures and how the legal status of those expats who are living in Spain will change.

Even though we will focus basically on the student status, we will also explore alternative paths that may be of interest to all of them in the near future.

We will speak as well about the Student Visa, Highly Qualified Workers Visa, Entrepreneurs, and other related matters.

The webinar will be hosted by Cristian Balcells, CEO of Balcells Group.
