Residence Visa for non-profit purposes







Foreigners who wish to reside in Spain without carrying out work or professional activities can apply for a non-profit residence visa.


The Consulate General of Spain in Miami has jurisdiction over the following states: Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.


The non-profit residence visa application will be submitted personally in official form, from Monday to Friday between 8:30  and 1:30  (NO APPOINTMENTS). If you do not reside in Miami-Dade County and reasons that impede your travel are proven, such as distance, transportation difficulties, or illness or physical condition that hinders mobility, the presentation of the visa application by a duly accredited representative will be accepted.


In the case of minors, the application must be submitted personally by their parents or guardians duly accredited, accompanying the minor.


B1 / B2 visa holders must apply for a visa in the country of legal residence.

Applications will not be accepted more than 90 days before the expected date of travel to Spain.
The processing period for this type of visa can take approximately 4 to 6 weeks. This Consulate General recommends that air tickets are not purchased until the visa is granted.
