PRE-ARRIVAL PROCEDURES

European Union citizens need to be in possession of a valid European Union Identification Card or Passport; there is no additional visa requirement.

A student visa is mandatory for non-European Union citizens wishing to study in Spain for three months or longer. A student visa must be processed in your country of residence prior to your departure. Due to the overwhelming demand for student visas, it is important that you start your process early to allow enough time for the consulate to process your request.

Please contact your nearest Spanish consulate or embassy for more information on how to apply for a student visa.

After arriving in Madrid, students have 30 days to apply for a Student Residence Permit. This must be renewed yearly.

 

POST-ARRIVAL PROCEDURES (ALL STUDENTS)

Residence Permit and Number
All students who are not Spanish citizens must apply for a residence number called a Número de Identidad de Extranjero (NIE).

The Teach & Learn in Spain program will provide details and help with these procedures at orientation for accepted students in September.
