Possibility

HELP WITH VISA
The Spanish Embassy in your country of residence will tell you exactly what documentation you need to supply for them to process your application. We advise that you contact them as soon as you’ve applied for Harbour.Space, so you have detailed information of what they need in advance. They will want proof of admission to an official educational institution in Spain, so you can only apply for your visa once your Harbour.Space application has been proved successful. Submit your visa application as soon as possible because processing times can be over 6 weeks.
