Process for applying for the Spanish Tourist Visa

You need to start the process with the application form and providing the required documents for further process. 3 particular documents have been found to be creating issues for most of the cases. The documents are Travel insurance, flight reservations, and accommodation proof.


The Appointment

In order to get your visa for Spain, you will need to appear in an interview at the embassy and for the interview you must get an appointment. You will not be allowed to pursue the application without an appointment.


Online Submission of Data

The Spanish embassy transfers the verified data of the applicants to its online database. Once you have submitted all the information, and it is verified and entered in the database, you will be given a hard form of the information and you will be required to sign and approve the data to be true. After you approve the data through your signature, you will need to pay the fee for the Spanish tourist visa and you will receive a receipt for the payment.


Biometric Data Collection

Once the application form is submitted by the applicant, he is required to submit his biometric data as well. The applicant’s documents are mostly sent ahead for further processing before asking for the biometric data. This is the last step for the process.

You need to be careful while sending the documents for the visa process so that no mismanagement or error of data is faced. If there is any discrepancy in the data, the issuance of a visa may be rejected.


Obtaining Hotel and Flight reservations for Spanish Tourist Visa

The process of Spanish visa attainment is pretty simple yet some tourists face confusion when it comes to hotel and flight reservations required for the visa process. You are not required to submit the ticket details, rather than the details of your itinerary will work fine. The reason is that the flight schedules change and also there is a possibility that your visa might be rejected. So in order to save your money, the itinerary is required.

The itinerary proves that you will be leaving Spain after your stay according to your visa and ticket dates. It is also required to be tallied with the information provided in the application form for verification.
