The Type C visa is for applicants who are required to perform or work in Spain for no more than 5 consecutive days or 20 performance days (rehearsals do not count in this) within a period of 6 months.

Supporting documents:

  • Letter of invitation from the company in Spain written in Spanish in which it states clearly: business relation that justifies your trip, purpose of the trip and duration of your stay in Spain.
  • Proof of sufficient financial guarantees: up to date original bank statements for the last 3 months, certified by bank, which clearly state periodic income (salary transfer, yield, etc.).
  • This Consular Section will not accept bank statements from on-line banking.
  • Proof of sufficient financial availability for the period of stay requested: £84 per day of stay, with a minimum of £760 per person regardless of the intended duration of the stay.
  • Confirmation of accommodation and return/onward travel.
