[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Let’s say that you are a Non-EU foreigner and you wish to be authorised to enter Spain. One of the requisites the authorities could ask you to fulfil is to declare your reasons for coming to the country – and one of the ways in which you may accredit this requirement is by presenting an invitation letter. In theory, it sounds simple but, as always, it’s not so simple as it sounds.
Here are some FAQs on the invitation letter to enter Spain:
Do I need an invitation letter to enter Spain?
First of all, we have to determine if you need a visa to enter the country. If you don’t need a visa then you won’t need an invitation but if you require a visa, it is possible that one of the visa requisites could be the accreditation of your reasons to visit the country. For this you will need to present an invitation letter.
Do I need to have family or friends in Spain? How do I get it otherwise?
Having family or friends in Spain would be the easiest way to obtain the letter.
But should you not be staying with anyone you know then you may also provide proof of your stay and accommodation in other ways, for example through a hotel reservation.
Where to get one of these letters?
Should you have friends or family, the Police Station near to their location would be the right place.
How much does it cost and how long does it last?
At the time of writing, the cost is of 72,12 € and it would last for maximum 90 days. Only the original copy will be accepted.
Who can request the invitation letter?
Since the idea is to obtain the invitation letter from within Spain (otherwise you would need an invitation letter to get the invitation letter!) it can only be requested by Spanish nationals, EU Citizens, and legal residents in general.
Does the invitation letter guarantee entry to Spain?
Since it is only one of the ways to tick-off one of the many requirements for the obtainment of the visa, it does not itself guarantee entry. However, it is a good start towards gaining entry. If an invitation is required then you will need one.
