Visas

9/20/2017
The Visa Section of the Consulate General of Spain in San Francisco will consider visa applications in person and by appointment only for all types of visas. Please note that each visa applicant must have their own appointment. If you are travelling as a group or family, please request the corresponding number of appointments, including for minors.
 
Please read the visa guidelines for your requested visa type carefully, we cannot accept incomplete applications. You must bring all required documents and photocopies where necessary with you to your visa appointment.
 
Due to the current high demand for visa services processed at this visa consular office, we cannot accept walk in applications. You will be asked to present proof of your appointment when you arrive. All appointments must be made online via the Bookitit system.
 
Please note that although the Bookitit system occasionally shows that there no appointment available within your required timeframe, many applicants cancel their appointments at short notice and their time becomes available. So please be persistent.
 
We recommend that visa applicants schedule their appointment with sufficient time for planned travel to Spain, and the Schengen area. You can find out how long your visa will take in the visa guidelines below, times vary for different visa types.
