Student Visa Requirement in Spain, Process, Fees & Application
Applying for Spain student visa? Here’s help!
Students from the EU and the EEA do not need a student visa to study in Spain. If your stay in Spain will be longer than 90 days, it is mandatory that you apply for a residence permit or Foreigner Identity Card (TIE) within 30 days of arrival. This is done at your local Foreigner’s Office.
Make sure to bring a national identity card or passport, as well as a valid European Health Insurance Card with you in order to be officially added to the population register.
- A valid passport.
- Medical insurance that will cover any costs for the duration of your studying in Spain. Having student medical insurance is very important in case of a sudden illness or accidents.
- Proof that you have the financial resources and accommodation for the period for which you are requesting the visa, and where applicable, the funds to guarantee your return to your country.
- Bank statement that is proof you can support yourself during your studies
- Visa applications for a spouse, domestic partner, a child, or children (under the age of eighteen or with a disability) are allowed alongside an application for a study visa. This means they can enter and live legally with you during the duration of your studies in Spain.
