Foreigners coming to Spain with the purpose of studying, are required to read carefully the following information.
Nationals from the following countries can stay for up to 90 days in Spain without a Visa: Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, El Salvador, United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Malaysia, Macao, Mexico, Monaco, Nicaragua, Norway, New Zealand, Panama, Paraguay, Republic of Korea South, San Marino, Vatican, Singapore, Uruguay, Venezuela. If you are a citizen of one of these countries and wish to study for more than 90 days, you need a “Visado de Estudios”.
A Student Visa is mandatory for students from all other countries wishing to study in Spain for 3 months or more.
In Funcarele we can help you to obtain your student visa by sending you the formal invitation letter, but you must consult your local Spanish Embassy or Consulate about Spanish study visa requirements for your country, at least 120 days prior to departure. Normally you will be asked to choose the 20h/week intensive course, hold a valid passport, private health insurance, proof of sufficient financial means to study in Spain and the invitation letter from the school. You should pay 100% of your program in advance. If the request is denied, we will refund the full amount paid, minus administrative charges (bank transfers, postage expenses, fax, telephone calls, etc.).
