Visas for Spain

What is a Visa?

A visa is an endorsement placed in your passport that indicates that you are able to enter, exit and stay in a country (in this case, Spain) for a specific period of time. Although tourists from many countries may enter Spain without a visa, the length of their stay is limited to 90 of every 180 days.

Prospective SLU-Madrid students who are not legal residents of the European Union must apply for a visa to enter Spain and study at the Madrid Campus for a semester or academic year. A visa cannot be obtained once in Spain; please leave enough time to apply for and be mailed your visa. SLU-Madrid does not reimburse visa costs, even in the case that a visa is not granted.

SLU-Madrid requires students to provide evidence of their legal residency in Spain. Failure to present the appropriate student visa upon arrival or to maintain legal residency as a student will result in immediate withdrawal from classes and expulsion from university housing; refunds will be issued according to the refund policy.
