Detailed Spain visa application centre re-opening information

Spain uses a commercial partner, BLS International, around the world to operate its visa application centres. 

BLS International is working with the Spanish government to determine where and when it’s safe to resume operations. Visa application centres will therefore open in a phased manner – which will be subject to change if circumstances require – and not all visa application centres within a given country will open all at once.
