When you need a student visa: AuPair & Study Program
Non EU citizens do not need a visa for stays no longer than 3 months ( if their country is exempted from this obligation as Spain is a Schengen country) and they do not need to be enrolled in a Spanish Language course either.
For more than 3 months stays, au pairs need a student visa, enrolment in Spanish classes or other educational courses, having guaranteed the necessary economical resources to defray the expenses of their studies, as well as the costs of living and the return to their country; and a medical insurance. Au Pair In Spain team will help you to obtain documentation required if you come from an English speaking country (USA, Canada, Australia…). Another option is to obtain non lucrative residence visa. Call your Spanish consulate and get the necessary information.
Rules and regulations for Student Visas are constantly changing. We highly suggest that you contact your nearest Consulate immediately to ensure that you have all of the necessary paperwork and that you will have enough time to submit your application. We will help you with this. You should contact the Consulate at lest 60 days before your departure.
In Madrid we currently can offer you the Au Pair & Study program in schools accredited by Instituto Cervantes.
