All about your Visas
VFS has been appointed as an outsourced partner by the Embassy of Spain in Saudi Arabia, to facilitate short stay visa applications to Spain.

Visa applications will be accepted at the VFS office’s in Riyadh and Al khobar, in accordance with the respective place of residence of the applicant.

Foreign nationals who wish to travel to Spain must be in possession of a visa, unless they are nationals from countries which are not included in the list of countries with the obligation to carry a visa in order to cross external borders for stays in the Schengen Area of no more than three months (90 days) in a period of six months (180 days) from the date of entry into the Schengen Area.

In case the applicant intends to visit various Schengen countries the country responsible to issue the relevant visa for the entire duration of the trip, including for other Schengen countries will be determined in the following order:

1. The Embassy of the country in which the traveller is going to stay the longest.
2. If the traveller is to stay the same time in different Schengen countries, the Embassy of the country of first entry.

Please note
Granting a visa is the prerogative of the Embassy for each application. Submission of all the documents does not imply “right” to be granted a visa.
Applicants seeking student or residence visas are required to contact the Embassy of Spain, Riyadh directly.


Step 1
Applications for Spanish short term visa are accepted at the Visa Application Centre.

Step 2
Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how long it will take to process your application, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Embassy or Consulate.
