Visa for close relatives of spanish citizens or other EU members Legally residing in spain

There are two applicable laws regarding visas solicited by Ukrainian relatives of Spanish citizens or other EU members legally residing in Spain, both are relevant to the right for free movement of relatives of EU members stipulated in the article 21 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

These are two different procedures for relatives of EU members for soliciting visa with the following characteristics:

1. Agreement between the European Community and Ukraine on the facilitation of the issuance of visas.
Visas for Ukrainian citizens intending to visit a Spanish relative or other EU member legally residing in Spain are subject to the Agreement between the European Community and Ukraine on the facilitation of the issuance of visas.

This procedure allows a visa with the validity from 2 to 5 years and a 90 days duration of stay in semester (180 days), during the period of visa validity (date “valid from” – date “valid until”), this procedure is considered to be facilitated.

It is possible to submit your visa application in any of the Visa Application Centers of Spain available in Ukraine by scheduling an appointment or Directly in the Consular Section of the Embassy of Spain in Kiev, by telephone appointment.

Warning: this visa type is not valid for initiating the process of obtaining residence with a Spanish citizen, or other EU member legally residing in Spain. In case you intend to solicit a residence permit, see the requirements for relatives of EU members stipulated in RealDecreto 240/2007.

2. RealDecreto 240/2007, relatives of EU members and extended family.
Visas for relatives of Spanish citizens or other EU members legally residing in Spain that subject to RealDecreto 240/2007 also called "visa for relatives of EU members and extended family".

This visa can be solicited by Ukrainian/other nationals relatives of EU members.

This procedure allows a visa with remarks “relative of EU member” with a 90 days duration of stay in semester and its validity can be up to 90 days without possibility to obtain a visa with longer period of validity. Since this visa allows to apply for residence permit, the requirements to it may differ.

Warning: In case you intend to initiate the process of obtaining residence, this visa is required for Ukrainian citizens for initiating the process of obtaining residence in Spain.

You can submit your visa application directly to the Consular Section of the Embassy of Spain in Kyiv, please schedule your appointment by calling to the call center: +38 044-390-76-90

However, if the main purpose of the trip is a visit to relatives rather than moving to Spain, we advise you to solicit a visa according to the Agreement between the European Community and Ukraine on the facilitation of the issuance of visas as the duration of the visa will be much longer.
