Applying for a Schengen Visa
​This visa enables the person to travel and stay in the Spanish territory and the rest of the Schengen States for a maximum of 90 days during any 180 days period.
Saudi nationals need a visa to enter and stay in Spain for a maximum of 90 days during any 180 days period. Moreover, it is necessary that they meet all the requirements to enter in the Schengen area.
