Spain is a member of the European Community; therefore, European nationals do not need a Visa or any other previous permission to get into the country. All the documentation needed to enter Spain is a valid passport proving the person’s nationality.
Nationals of non European countries may in general need a visa to enter Spain. There are different types of visa depending of the purpose and length of the person’s stay.
Tourist Visa: Is normally valid for 90 days and grants only visit and circulation rights being work forbidden.
Student Visa: Granted to students who travel to Spain to attend classes or exams at a Spanish Institution.
Working Visa: Is the only one that allows to work and incur in professional activities for the specified period of time.
There are certain countries which have a visa exemption agreement with Spain. Nationals of said countries do not need to request a visa to enter the country and stay for a maximum of 90 days, but may need to comply with certain specific requirements at the moment of entering the country. The most usual requests are round trip ticket with a return date prior to 90 days of the enter date and an invitation letter from a resident.
In any case, it is always advisable to check with the Spanish consulate in your country if you need a visa and which documentation is needed to request it and the entry requirements for visa exempted citizens. The length of this paperwork will depend on the current demand, so we recommend asking in advance before your trip.
