Schengen, documents you need to apply

​You must have all these documents to apply for a Schengen visa.

1       A passport with at least two empty pages. The passport should have been issued within the last 10 years.  The passport must be valid for at least 3 months beyond the date on which you intend to leave the Schengen territory, or, in the case of multiple journeys, the date on which you intend to leave after the last stay. 
2       A visa application form [72 KB] completed and signed.

Any person appearing in your travel document must complete a separate application form. The visa application form for a child under 18 must be signed by a parent or guardian.
3       A recent identity photograph conform to ICAO standards [438 KB] .
4       A visa fee [462 KB] to be paid when you submit your application.
You can find the amount you must pay  here. Remember that fees must be paid in cash, certified cheque or money order payable to the Consulate General of Spain in Toronto when you come to your appointment.
5       A travel medical insurance covering emergency medical, hospitalisation and repatriation (including in case of death). The minimum cover should be of 30.000 EUR. This insurance must be valid for the entire Schengen area and throughout the duration of the stay.
6       Any document supporting your status in Canada (PR card, any other residence permit…). That document must give you righ to reenter in Canada at least 3 months after your departure from the Schengen zone.
Various documents relating to the purpose of your stay, evidence of means of support during your stay and your accommodation. These documents are:
7       Your detailed hotel reservation with the complete address for all Schengen countries. If you are part of a tour or cruise, include a letter from your travel agent stating a complete itinerary of cities and hotels. If you are going to stay with a friend or relative in Spain, he must obtain an Original Local Police invitation and send it to you. Tell her/him to contact a Comisaría de Policía in Spain.  
8       Proof of financial means: bank statements, letter from your bank, work contract, employment letter, title deeds or any proof of income. You must prove funds at least in the equivalent to 581 euros; If you are going to stay more than 9 days in Spain, increase that amount in the equivalent of 64 euros for each additional day.
9       Planned itinerary/printout of a roundtrip airline ticket: We highly recommend you not purchasing travel tickets until your visa has been approved.
 
10  Documentation proving the reason why you want to travel to Spain or the Schengen area. For instance, if you are going for business, an invitation from the enterprise that you are going to visit; if you are going to study, a letter of admission from an academic institution; if you are a sportman or an artist and you are going to perform in Spain, a document proving it; if you are going to lecture or make research, a letter from the institution you are going to visit. If you are a tourist o visiting friends or relatives and you have the other documents, you don´t need this letter.

 

 11  In case you want that we send you your passport by post once   the visa has been stamped, so that you don´t need to come again to the Consulate, an Express post Envelope.
