I've been reading some posts related but I'm still not quite sure, so I'll just throw my question.
I have dual nationality (Peruvian and Spanish). I have been living in Spain for 6 years and have a good job (this mean that I can afford 2 persons).
My question is, How can I effectively bring my girlfriend from Perú permanently with a work permit?
She has already been here for 6 months doing an Erasmus (with Student visa) and we lived together during that time. Now that she is back in Perú, after she finishes her last year of university, we decided that she would come and look for a job here, but we are not really sure what would be our best options.
My thoughts so far were making myself self-employed (autónomo) together with my already paid employment (I know this is possible) so I could send her a job offer, then she could come and arrange all the necessary paperwork to stay and look for another (real) job.
As I know that this will cost me an important amount of money, I also thought about the possibility that she could start looking for a job through internet and doing online interviews. I'm just a bit worried that this is highly difficult, not because of her skills but because of the lack of support from companies here that will need to do a lot of paperwork. (I forgot to mention that she will be looking for a job related to her career, graphic design).
We are not feeling ready to get married just to get her the residence, but if helps we were thinking of becoming officially partners (pareja de hecho), but I'm afraid that we cannot prove it the way the law requires (the proof we lived together for at least 12 months).
