Student visa beyond 180 days up to 1 year

D CATEGORY

This type of visa allows you to study continuously for more than 6 months in Spain and to extend your stay in Spain.

The first step we recommend is to visit the website of the Spanish Consulate in your country and find out information about this type of visa. On the website you will also find information on how to make an appointment to submit your documents and how to legalise them.

Each consulate has its own rules for making an appointment, in some cases you need to make an online application and in other consulates documents are submitted on a first come first served basis.

General
requirements

You can apply for a visa no earlier than three months and no later than one month before the start of the course
Long-term visa applications are processed within a month, but we recommend that you make an appointment a couple of months before the start of your studies, as the Consulate may not have an appointment, in which case you will have to move your start date.
Some sources refer to this type of visa as "student residence", but it does not have residency status, as the main reason for staying in the country is study and it is a temporary stay (estancia).
