Travel Documentation

You’ll need a passport in hand approximately three months before you depart for Spain. Right now it can take as long as six weeks to receive a passport, so apply right away. You can find all the application information you need at the U.S. State Department’s website.

If you already have a passport, make sure it won’t expire before you return from Spain. It must be valid for at least six months beyond the end of the term.

If you’ll be attending SIS during the fall or spring semesters, you’ll also need a student visa issued by the Spanish Consulate. We’ll help you through the process of applying for the visa. It can take as long as six weeks to receive your visa, so it’s very important to have your passport available at least three months prior to your departure for Seville since a passport is needed for the student visa application.

You won’t need a visa for the summer term if you’re a U.S. or EU citizen
