Moving your effects abroad
If you move to Spain as an EU citizen (or a national of Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, or Switzerland), you only need a valid passport or national identity card. An application for a NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjeros). If you are contemplating buying or renting property, opening a bank account and working, you will need an NIE. To apply for the NIE , you need to go either to the national police department or to the Oficina de Extranjeros (Department of Foreigners) http://cas.umkc.edu/foreignlanguages/spanish/ in your city of residence. The application process, which needs to be completed by both EU nationals and non-EU citizens, may take from one up to five weeks until you finally receive your NIE.
Non-EU citizens whose home country has a special agreement with Spain may move to Spain and live there without applying for a visa for up to 90 days. It is important to note that visas are never issued within Spain; so be sure to apply for a visa in your home country before moving to Spain if you are planning on staying longer than three months.
There are several different types of visas for Spain . Here is a brief overview for you to determine which one applies to you:
- Visa de reagrupación familiar: This visa applies to people who are married or related (sibling, child under 18, parent) to a Spanish citizen.
- Work visa: Please contact your employer when applying for a working visa, as you will need to supply an employment contract to the authorities.
- Student visa: You must be enrolled in a school or a university, or in an exchange program in order to obtain a student visa. Students’ stays may exceed 90 days. If you apply for a student visa, you may simultaneously apply for visas for your spouse and children under 18.
- Tourist visa: Non-EU citizens and foreign nationals whose country of origin does not have a special agreement with the Schengen countries need to apply for this visa if they intend to enter Spain. It is valid only up to 90 days.

Spain is one of the most well known holiday destinations in Europe and every summer millions of tourists flock to it in order to revel in its amazing historical sites, but also taste the passionate lifestyle the country is so well known for.
The Spanish Lifestyle
If you never been to Spain and plan on visiting it soon, you’ll be overjoyed when realizing that Spanish people are fun, loving and very open minded people are very sociable and always intent on enjoying the outdoors and the sun. Meeting someone on the street and spending a few minutes for some friendly chat is a regular site here. The people here also value spending a lot of time with their family and not doing so would seem very unnatural to them.
Compared to the rest of Europe, the Spanish way of life is a bit slower, especially if we’re talking about the Southern part of the Peninsula. Working hard is very important for Spanish people and they take this very seriously. Even though in the province you will still see the shops closed after lunch time, just for a few hours, in the bigger cities they are open all day long.
The Spanish culture is influenced by the Phoenician, Roman, North African, Greek and Muslim cultures and that is why it’s very mysterious, colorful and rich. Generally Spanish culture is known for the amazing beaches you can find here, bullfights, Flamenco music, dance and lots of sunshine. However, the country has way more to offer than this. It is for thousands of years one of the cultural centers of the European continent.
Spain’s National Cuisine
Even though many would expect Spain to have a national cuisine, there is no official food they welcome foreigners with. The country’s food tradition has a diverse ancestry, yet most of the dishes here have humble origins. However, Spain has a very diverse cuisine and pork is a very important dish in the Spanish menu. The locals don’t waste anything and it’s not rare that you will eat not one, but a few types of meat from the same dish.
On the other hand, Spanish ham is the most sought after food product which is not only consumed as tapas in bars, but it can also be present in many other dishes. Vegetables also play a vital role in Spanish food and they are present in many dishes.
The Geography of Spain
The country can be found in the S-W Europe on the Iberian Peninsula to the S of Andorra and France and to the E of Portugal. It has coastlines on the Mediterranean Sea and the Bay of Biscay. Spain’s capital is Madrid, a city spanning 604 square miles and inhabited by around 3,3 million people.
The Spanish Climate
There are 3 climatic zones which can be distinguished in Spain, numbering the Mediterranean climate which is characterized by wet and cool winters and warm and dry summers. Next, the oceanic climate is found in the N part of the country, especially in regions like Galicia, Cantabria, Asturias and Basque Country. Lastly, the semi-arid climate can be found in the S-E part of Spain, especially in the Ebro Valley and Murcia.
Boasting a lot of natural beauty, historical sites, but also a prosperous culture and friendly people, Spain is certainly one of the favorite destinations of many who want to experience what living in the heart of Europe really feels like.
