Short Stay Visas
3/8/2018

 

​Short stay visas (tourism, business, family visit) 
 
 

 

Persons seeking a short-term visa (less than 90 days) must justify the reason for their stay (tourism, family visit, business, etc...) and show sufficient financial means to address the various costs connected with their visit to Spain (or Sweden) (housing, food and maintenance etc.).
