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 Madrid 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.

Housing in Madrid

We offer a range of housing and student apartments in Madrid to suit different needs and preferences. Whatever you choose, we’ll help you feel at home during your study abroad experience.

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.
