Spanish Student Visa

Our English speaking Immigration lawyers can help you obtain your Spanish student visa for your studies in Spain.

Student Visa in Spain

The Spanish student visa is a stay authorization that allows non-EU citizens to live legally while they are studying in Spain at a public or private institution.

It is only an authorization to live in Spain while the applicant is studying in Spain, not a residency permit.
There are two types of Student visas:

  1. Short term student visa for studies between 3 and 6 months.
  2. Long term student visa for studies more than 6 months.

If the study time is less than 3 months, you do not need to apply for a student visa as your tourist visa will be more than sufficient.
