Student Visa & Documentation
Spain student visa: A student visa is required for all non-EU citizens who plan to study in Spain for a period long than 90 days. If you’re interested in long-term Spanish courses in Barcelona you should get in touch with us at Expanish so we can help you with the visa application process. Requirements and processing times may vary by country, so contact us for a personalized assessment and visa support. You can also find more information about the Spain student visa in our free guide.
Spain NIE and TIE: The NIE is your Foreigner Identification Number that you will need for most administrative procedures in Spain (e.g. open a bank account, rent an apartment, buy a car). You should automatically be assigned a NIE when you obtain a student visa. The TIE is your Foreigner Identification Card, your physical ID which proves that you are permitted to leave and re-enter the country for the duration of your studies. Non-EU students coming to Spain for more than 180 days will need to get a TIE and you must apply for it within 30 days of arriving in Spain. At Expanish we'll be happy to guide you through the application process once you get to Spain.
Work permit: If you have a student visa in Spain you have the right to work for up to a maximum of 30 hours per week. To do this you must have a valid job offer and apply for a work permit. Expanish can provide assistance with the application process, but note that obtaining a work permit can take some time so we recommend you don't rely on earnings from a job when you first arrive in Spain.

What our students say about us
We loved our classes at Expanish! It was one of the highlights of our trip to be able to refine our Spanish skills while being in Spain. I took private lessons with my 3 kids. The teachers and staff were all so kind. They were very understanding when we were running late too!
Very fun and friendly teachers, that create a very good learning atmosphere!
Absolutely satisfied. I did my course with Expanish, which is accepted as "Bildungsurlaub" in Germany. Everything was well organized. During the course, I
learned in short time a lot and received valuable recommendations.
Expanish is absolutely recommendable for everyone that wants to learn or improve their Spanish.
Stayed for 9 weeks, it was great. My friend and I were in a host family together and they were amazing. The school itself was really fun and my Spanish improved a lot. It's also a great social experience. Super easy to make friends from loads of different countries at the school.
Super recommended! I’ve been enrolled for the Evening course, 2 times per week, and I really enjoyed it. We had 2 different teachers, my fav one is Miguel - we had so much fun during our lectures and his way of teaching has always been very engaging and entertaining! The school itself is nice too, very pretty and well located. I’ll be back soon!
I really enjoyed my time learning. I found it provided me a good base but it is all about practice as well of course
Studying at Expanish has been an unforgettable experience. In just one week, my level of Spanish improved significantly thanks to the dynamic classes and great teachers. I would definitely recommend this school without any hesitation. Thanks again to the Expanish team!
I joined the intensive B1 course, where I had the chance to meet several great teachers with diverse attention to grammar, phonetics, speaking, writing etc. I can only recommend the school as everybody is very flexible and attentive.
The place is really cool, filled with young people and a great atmosphere to learn a new language! The teachers are very good and when you are in class you don't see time pass and don't get bored at all because you will do also group activities, play games, watch movies, all of this while learning and you would be surprised of the progress you make in a very short time!
Great place to learn Spanish.
