Do you need to apostille your FBI background check for Spain?
Are you planning to work in Spain or continue your education in this country? You will be asked to obtain an apostille on your FBI background check. It’s one of the documents the Consulate will request from you for your Visa application.
If you are planning to Study in Spain and need a Student Study Visa for more than 180 days, you will be required to obtain an apostille on your FBI background check.
A Work Visa for Spain will also require for you to obtain an FBI background check. Please consulate with the local Spanish Consulate for instructions and a list of documents you will need to provide.
The first step is to contact an approved FBI Channeler to assist you in obtaining your FBI background check. We can provide you a recommend list of FBI channelers.
If the FBI Channeler is unable to help, please contact the FBI directly. More information here: https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks
