*ADDITIONAL VISA INFORMATION
As soon as you confirm your attendance, you should contact the Spanish consulate or embassy that pertains to your place of residence (temporary and/or permanent) to find out what the application requirements are for a student visa. These requirements vary from one consulate to another, but you may be required to submit a health assessment form from your doctor, police report on absence of criminal record and/or official translation of certain documents, all of which take time to prepare.
U.S. citizens applying for a long-stay visa, please keep in mind that the FBI background check can take up to 15 weeks to process and is one of the required documents to apply for the student visa.
