Formalities after Entry into Spain
Once a visa has been issued, there are certain formalities which must necessarily be carried out in Spain.

Renewal of short-term visas
It is possible to extend a short term visa when the stay authorized is shorter than 90 days. These formalities are carried out in the corresponding Foreigners Offices and Police Stations.

 
Foreigner Identity Cards

Foreigners who are granted a visa to stay in Spain for a period exceeding six months must apply for a foreigner identity card at the corresponding Provincial Brigade of Immigration and Borders dependent on the Ministry of the Interior, within one month from the date of arrival. Foreigner identity cards are not required to holders of visas issued to carry out seasonal work.
