New student visas that can be requested in Spain

New student visas that can be requested in Spain



Students that are in Spain during the first 2 months of their tourist period can apply for a study visa without having to travel back to their country of origin to request and obtain the visa.


Another novelty of this study visa is that, it can be requested for up to a period of 2 years, when the study program is given in a recognized School and will lead to obtain a Higher University Degree.


The visa can be requested in Spain directly by the interested party, and it could be also requested by a proxy and by the School where the student will be enrolled.


Before this visa could only be requested at the Spanish Consulates in the countries of origin of the students and they were granted for a year only. This gives the new student visa an advantage over the old one.


Requirements are the same as those requested before the reform of August 31st. 2018.


In newtoMadrid we can do for you all the paperwork involve in obtaining the student visa.
