Spanish student visa apply from Spain

Apply for your student visa from Spain

As we all know, the classic way to apply for a student visa is through the Spanish consulate of your country of origin.

However, there has been a modification to the law that many of you may already be aware of.

The Real Decreto - Ley 11/2018, de 31 de agosto, states that from now on the person who wants to obtain a student visa can apply from within Spain, as long as some requirements are met.

The main requirements, probably the most important one as well, is that the person who is applying to obtain the student visa from Spain is here legally, so if you are here ilegally you cannot apply.

Another important thing to remember is that you must apply during the first 60 days of your stay or 30 days before your stay expires. So, if you are in Spain as a tourist for example, you must apply in the first 60 days of your visit or 30 days before your time as a tourist expires.
