Spain National Visa Processing Time The Consulate in charge of processing your visas in your country of residence is obliged to process your national visa appliion within one month. In some specific situations, this period can be extended.
· One of the most common ways to start the process is in a branch of your chosen bank in Spain. Make sure you make an appointment in advance and request an English speaker (or bring a friend as a translator). If everything's in order, your new account will usually be open and ready to use in as little as 15 days.⁴
