Here are the steps on how to fill out the visa form called Application for National Visa if you are coming to Spain as an auxiliar de conversacion.
If you are hesitating to fill out the form because you don’t know what to write, then look no further. Well, actually, you can look further, in particular at the website of the Office of the Education Adviser, where this blog post is based on. This post is more specific, though, because some numbers have beed added and explained a little further. So, here you go!
The numbers correspond to the entry in the visa form. If the number is not listed here, it means you will leave it blank.
- Make sure to download the form with FIVE pages
- The Consulate accepts applications either handwritten or typewritten. Just don’t type your signature! Heh heh.
- You only need one passport-size photo with white background. Paste the photo on the original Page 1, fill it out, then photocopy it with the rest of the pages. You will have to produce two photocopies.
- The Consulate is not particular with the size of the paper, but I printed mine on A4 paper, which is the right size.
1 – Write your family name
2 – Your maiden last/family name (only if you are married)
3 – Your given/first name (as in the case of most Filipinos)
4 – Follow the European format of DD-MONTH-YEAR
5, 6, 7 – Fill out accordingly
8, 9 – Tick the appropriate box
12 – Tick “Ordinary Passport”
13 – The passport number
14 – Date of issue, using the European format
15 – Expiration date, using the European format
16 – Issuing DFA office
17 – First line: Permanent address – Second line: E-mail address where the Consulate will contact you regarding the status of your visa – Mobile number with country code
18 – Applicable only if you are currently living in another country and with a residence permit. Otherwise, leave this blank. Answer accordingly.
19 – If fresh grad, write “Fresh graduate”. Write your profession at the time of your appointment. Some people left this part blank and some were still asked about their employment history and their answers were written down on the form.
20 – Tick “Studies”
21 – You can generally enter after 15 September, unlike last year when you could only put any date within 10 days before the start of the program
22 – Tick “More than two” (but this does not really matter)
23 – You may leave this blank or put your school’s address
28 – School name, school address, phone number, and email address as written in the carta de nombramiento.
Intended starting date of study or research: 1 October 2019
Intended finishing date of study or research: either 31 May 2019 or 30 June 2019, depending on your region
27 – Place: Manila, Philippines.
Date: Your appointment date in European format
28 – Your signature as it appears on your passport
Easy peasy! You’re one step away from your dream to become an auxiliar de conversacion in Spain!
