Travel visa

How much bureaucracy can there be in getting a visa you ask? Here’s a list of requirements to apply for a Schengen visa at the Spanish consulate, so you get a feel for how much our countries mire us in endless paperwork.

  • Schengen visa form
  • 2 3×4 photos
  • Bank statement for the last 4 months
  • Salary receipt for the last 4 months
  • Copy of home ownership contract
  • Copy of IT statement
  • Copy of country ID
  • Copy of country of residence ID
  • Confirmed travel tickets
  • Confirmed hotel reservation
  • Invitation letters
  • Letter from company with signature verified/authenticated
  • Travel insurance
  • Payment receipt for travel insurance
  • Copy of all the pages of the passport
  • Passport
  • Visa fees (BRL 160.75, about USD 92 or 67 Euros)

All that for a visa that will last exactly eleven (the duration of my travel) days.
