Spain visa from Dubai

A Spain Schengen visa is a mandatory document to carry when you are a UAE resident and travelling to any of the Schengen countries. This visa lets you stay for a maximum of 90 days and also allows you to travel to other Schengen countries too. Depending on the purpose of your travel, you can apply for different visas accordingly.

And, note that the UAE citizens don’t need one as long as they are holding a valid UAE passport.

Spain visa for UAE citizens

If you are a UAE citizen and holding a UAE passport, you will not need a visa to enter Spain as it is among the Schengen-free countries and lets UAE citizens enter Spain without a visa. Though a visa is not needed, you should still submit a few documents on your arrival and only if they are found valid, you would be permitted. The list of documents that you should carry is mentioned below.

  • UAE passport with validity for at least 3 months from the date of arrival.
  • Financial proof and how you are going to manage expenses in Spain.
  • Purpose of visit.
  • Recent photographs with a white background.
