Spain Visa Information for

South African Residents

Spain is part of the borderless region known as the Schengen Area and South African passport holders require a Schengen visa in order to enter Spain. A passport valid for at least three months from your departure is required and a visa will only be issued if blank pages are available. Requirements for the procurement of a visa are subject to change but application requirements include round-trip travel itinerary specifying entry and exit dates from the Schengen state and proof of funds to support yourself during your stay (approximately $50 USD per day).

BLS International is the authorized service provider to The Embassy/Consulate of Spain in South Africa, providing services to help people apply for a visa to enter Spain. BLS have a visa application Centre in Cape Town and Pretoria.
