Work Visa from Equatorial Guinea to Spain

Work Visa from Equatorial Guinea to Spain Description

  • The Spanish work visa is issued to foreign citizens who intend to work as employees in Spain.
  • You must have secured employment in Spain before starting the process of getting a work visa. After you have secured a job, your employer must request a work permit on your behalf that will permit you to work legally in Spain.
  • The permit will only be granted if the job is listed as a Shortage Occupation or if the vacancy has been advertised and there are no suitable candidates from Spain or the EU to take the job.
  • Once you have been authorized to work in Spain, you will be issued a work permit. Only then can you begin your work visa application.
  • You should note that you cannot apply for your own work visa in Spain as the Spanish immigration law dictates that employers must submit the application on your behalf. It is thus important that you contact your employer early to get the process started.
  • However, you need to provide your employer with all the relevant documents needed to apply on your behalf.
  • The following documents are needed to process your work visa:
    • Your original passport with a minimum of six months validity.
    • A duly completed and signed visa application form.
    • Two passport-size photographs taken with a white background.
    • A police report showing no criminal record obtained within the latest 90 days.
    • Original copy of a medical certificate issued by a medical institution and signed by a doctor verifying that you are free from any contagious diseases and that you are free of any drug addictions and mental illnesses.
  • Processing your work permit can take up to eight months so you are advised to start your application well in time.
  • A work permit is valid for one year but it can be renewed as long as you still fulfil the requirements under which it was first issued.
