WARNINGS: Under the provisions of Directive 2004/38 / EC and Royal Decree 240/2007 of 16 February, family members of citizens of an EU / EEA country with valid residence permit in the United Kingdom do not require entry visas in Spain when they accompany or join the citizen of the Union. The residence permit must indicate that the holder is a relative of a citizen of an EU / EEA State. If not, you must travel with the corresponding visa.
 
Applications are not accepted without an appointment. The granting of an appointment is not a guarantee of obtaining the visa.
 
The visa application requires payment of the corresponding regulatory fee. This fee will not be refunded even if the requested visa is not granted or the application is not accepted due to incomplete documentation.
