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.
It is also mandatory to have a Uniform Schengen visa for those nationals of third countries included on the list of countries whose nationals must be in possession of a visa when crossing the EU's external borders.
If you are a national of one of these countries, you are residing in Saudi Arabia and Spain is the only Schengen State you want to visit or it is the most important destination of the journey throughout several Schengen States or it is the first stop of your journey around the Schengen area, please proceed as follows:
SUBMISSION OF THE APPLICATION: Please note that when the applicant is a minor the application can be submitted by the parents or legal representative. Applications must be submitted within the three months prior to the departure and it is advisable to do it at least 15 days in advance.
