Apply for a Visa at the Consulate General of Spain in Melbourne

Check the list of Schengen Members States, in case you require more than one entry. Schengen visas are also valid for Andorra.


1.- Australian and New Zealand Passport Holders:


a) DO NOT require a visa for entry into the Schengen Space for tourism/ business purposes.


b) Are permitted to stay a maximum of 90 days per semester (period of 180 days) with multiple entries.


Please note: Immigration and border control may require that you present:

- a return ticket or confirmed flight

- sufficient available funds

- current valid passport with a validity of at least 6 months.

Period of 90 days: will take effect from the first date of entry into a Schengen country.


Passport: validity of 3 months left at the end of your planned journey.


2.- Other nationalities resident in Australia

Check here if you need a visa to enter the Schengen Space.




Submitting a visa application does not guarantee automatic issuance of a valid visa. The visa holder may be refused entry by border immigration at any given time.


An appointment will be made once application has been received and assessed. Please make sure you provide a contact detail.


Please take care in allowing sufficient time as Consulate could hold the application for decision during 4 weeks period (usually processed within 2 weeks), so plan your applications in advance in order to avoid disappointment.


Please note that there is no express visa service.


All visas must be applied for and collected within your country/ place of residence and collected prior to travel.


For visits involving remunerated activity, whatever the duration, Australian and New Zealand citizens must obtain visas prior to entry.


Information and requirements about the different types of visas available are detailed below.
