Student Visa

Expert legal advice on obtaining a student visa for foreign students seeking residence in Spain.

What is the Spanish Student Visa?

The student visa is the residence authorization that allows non-EU citizens to stay in Spain while they take studies in public or private educational centers, conduct research in the country, or undertake some kind of training.

We can apply for two types of study visas, those for linguistic purposes or language learning, or those of a higher category. More specifically, individuals intending to take up a vocational training course, a master’s or postgraduate program, a Ph.D., or an undergraduate degree in Spain will discover that this permit suits their needs.

It’s crucial to point out that this visa targets non-European Union citizens. Moreover, this is not a standard residence permit. The student visa merely grants permission to reside in Spain during your studies. Therefore, in the calculation of the years needed to qualify for permanent residency or Spanish citizenship, the time spent on a student visa is not included.

Nonetheless, with the changes in Immigration Law, it has emerged as an excellent opportunity for non-EU nationals. It permits you to work up to 30 hours per week automatically, and after finishing your studies (regardless of their length), you can effortlessly change to a work permit.

El gestor que me ayudo con el proceso se llama Darío. Desde el principio la comunicación fue muy buena, muy rápida, eficaz, conocimiento legal muy bueno y sin ningún tipo de contratiempo a la hora de agendar citas ni gestionar documentación. Casi todas mis experiencias con abogados no han sido buenas, pero esta vez quedé más que satisfecho con su gestión. Muy recomendado.
