In case of travel to multiple Schengen countries, please apply to the Embassy of the country where you will be staying for the maximum number of days. If the number of days to be spent in multiple countries is the same, you must apply to the embassy of the country which will be your first point of entry.

Please note that all decisions regarding the issuance of, duration and number of entries regarding the visa are at the sole discretion of the Spanish Consulate.
