The student visa in Spain is a temporary residence permit to live and study in Spain for more than 3 months. Despite this, there are a couple of things that you should consider about the validity of the student visa for Spain, since it varies depending on the duration of your course.


If your course lasts less than 6 months, your student visa in Spain will be valid during that time.


If your study program exceeds 6 months, your study visa in Spain will be valid for 3 months because you will have to process your Foreign Identity Card (TIE - tarjeta de identidad de extranjero), which can be up to 1 year.

In the second case, processing your Foreign Identity Card (TIE) implies that the first month after your arrival in Spain, you must process this card that will identify you as a foreigner and resident of Spain, with a maximum duration of 1 year.


With your TIE, you can live in Spain until the end of your course as long as you renew it annually.


On the other hand, the study visa in Spain allows you to work! In the country, you can process a permit to work 20 hours a week -no more!- if your job is compatible with your course or you are taking an internship agreement.


Of course there are other conditions:

The money you earn should not be used to cover your stay in Spain.
The company that hires you must be registered in the Social Security system regime.
The contract must be formalized in writing and the document must specify that it is a part-time job.
In some cases, the contract may be full time. However, it cannot last more than 3 months or interfere with the completion of your studies.
