Visa

UN Officials travelling to Spain, up to 90 days, on training or TDY, regardless of their nationality, will not be required to obtain a visa prior to their departure, provided that they hold a UNLP valid for at least 6 months along with a supporting document indicating the travel purpose and duration as well as a valid national passport.

  • UN personnel not holding a valid UNLP must obtain a visa prior to undertaking travel. All travellers are responsible for securing their own visas.
  • Visas may only be obtained in the country of residence or of origin of the applicant, from Spanish Consulates or, in their absence, in other Consulates representing the interests of the Schengen countries. Please note: Spanish visas cannot be requested in Spain nor can their validity be extended in Spain.
  • Since there have been instances whereby participants had to delay their departure, it is strongly recommended that all missions and duty stations extend the duration of the requested visa (if required) an extra week to give the staff members flexibility during their trips.
  • Should you require any assistance with your visa please contact the UNSB-V point of contact in Spain Mr. Lino Puertas - email: puertas@un.org cc: embleton@un.org
