Honorary Vice Consulates of Spain are not allowed to issue visas.
 
For these purposes, “sailor” means any person who is employed or who works in any position aboard a maritime navigation vessel or a vessel sailing in international inland waters.
 
 You can apply for a visa at this Consulate General if you are going to start transit through a border in Spain and you are a legal resident in Florida, Georgia or South Carolina. Due to the quantity of applications received by this office, it is recommended that you plan your trip to the Schengen area with sufficient time to apply for an appointment and to process your visa application. Holders of a B1/B2 visa must apply for a Schengen visa in their country of origin or permanent residence.
 
To find out if, because of your nationality, you need a visa for transit purposes, you can check the following lists of countries. In cases where it is enforceable, it allows one, two or, exceptionally, several times to transit.
 
The Schengen visa application (official model) must be submitted personally, not more than nine months before your trip and at least fifteen calendar days before it. Visa applications will not be accepted more than 270 days before the planned travel date.
