Bea Alonzo is now an official resident of Spain! In her recent vlog dated November 5, she revealed that she’ll finally get her residence card as she talked about her preparations for the upcoming 20-day Europe trip with her fiancé, Dominic Roque.
“Life update, makukuha ko na ‘yung residency card ko, so I will be an official resident of Spain,” she said.
The bride-to-be mentioned that they will visit Milan, Lake Como, Lugano, Florence, and Madrid. She also emphasized that this will be her first time living in her apartment in Madrid, which she purchased in 2022.
“It’s a really important trip for both Dom and I. Ito rin ‘yung unang beses na makakatira ako sa bahay ko sa Madrid. Sana magawa ko ang isang house tour.”
In November 2022, the actress became a legal resident of Spain after acquiring a Golden Visa, a residence permit issued to non-EU citizens who make a “significant investment” in Spain, including real estate.
The 36-year-old obtained Spanish residency through the Residency by Investment program, which grants residency in Spain to an individual who purchases a property over €500,000. She became eligible for this by purchasing a P30 million apartment in Madrid in May 2022.
With that, she can also travel visa-free to countries within the Schengen zone, such as Belgium, Austria, Denmark, France, Greece, and Germany.
Alonzo previously clarified that she will not apply for Spanish citizenship and will still stay in the Philippines.
