The official website of the government of Spain said on Thursday that it will soon open a new application for a visa to work in the country, bringing the total number of approved work visas to 8,400.
The government will open the new application to applicants for the first time in October, the Spanish Government said in a statement.
Work visas are a key piece of immigration reform that was brought in after a series of deadly terrorist attacks in France last year.
They allow immigrants who arrive legally to work temporarily and then get a permanent visa to continue working after their work permits expire.
The official website said the new program will allow immigrants to work without the risk of deportation if they have not committed any crimes, commit no major crimes, and have completed at least two years of training or experience.
