Study & Intern in Toledo — Visa

Passport

You must obtain a passport to enter Spain. Your passport must be valid for at least seven months after your return to the US. US citizens spending fewer than 90 days in Europe will only need a passport. A Spanish tourist visa, which is valid for 90 days, is automatically issued to all US citizens who enter Spain. If you have not already obtained your passport, see Passports for more information.

Visa

US citizens participating on the Sutdy & Intern in Toledo, Study & Intern in Madrid, or Psychology & Research in Madrid programs for a semester or year, or US citizens staying in Spain for more than 90 days, must obtain a student visa. US citizens participating in May or Summer session do not need a visa. Non-US citizens should check with the Spanish embassy to determine any special regulations pertaining entry into Spain at any time.

Remember to read all information that you receive regarding student visas carefully. Requirements could change at any time and can vary from consulate to consulate.

University of Minnesota Visa Service

The Spanish consulate in Chicago has graciously granted the University of Minnesota the ability to both drop off Spanish student visa applications and pick up the completed student visas on behalf of students studying abroad in Toledo and Madrid. 

This is an optional service, and is only available to students on the Toledo and Madrid programs. Each student MUST inform the Learning Abroad Center of his or her plans for obtaining the student visa whether they chose to use this service or not.
