Hi Hussam

For the most part, non-EU citizens will need to secure a job offer before applying for a Spanish work permit. This can become quite a complicated bureaucratic process, so you should apply well in advance and seriously consider hiring a local expert to help you with the paperwork. Try having a look at the Expat Arrivals guide to applying for a work permit for Spain if you need some more detailed information. 

Have you already found a job in Spain?
