    Default Dominican Visa Requirements for Spain

    Does anyone know the visa requirements for Dominicans to go to Spain (for a vacation)? I am pretty sure it is not one of those countries where Dominicans can just get on a plane and go there for a vacation without a tourist visa, etc. for entrance. My question applies to a Dominican who is already a permanent resident of Canada and wants to visit Spain (originating from Canada - not the DR). I have tried to find this information on the internet under Spain's website but I have had no luck in tracking down the right information. In addition to giving feedback, if anyone has the web link to Spain's website on this, I would much appreciate it. As a last resort, I can call the Spanish Embassy in Canada but I thought I would try here first since someone usually has the answer. Thanks.

    National DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (DO)
    Residence CANADA (CA) /Destination SPAIN (ES)


    SPAIN (ES)



    Passport required (must be valid at least 3 months beyond
    expiry date of visa).

    Visa required.

    Visitor must hold:
    - visible means of support during stay; and
    - onward or return ticket and documents required for next

    destination.


    Non-compliance with the entry regulations may result

    in fines between EUR 6,025.- and EUR 60,240.-.

    Minors travelling accompanied by parent or legal guardian:
    - up to/incl. 15 years old can be included in a parent's
    passport but must be accompanied by that passport holder;
    - all minors from 16 up to 18 years of age must hold their own
    passport or National Identity Card.


    Minors up to 18 years of age (from all countries) and
    travelling unaccompanied must hold:
    1. Passport; or
    2. National Identity Card, and

    exit form from country of origin certified by the parent(s)

    or legal guardian. This certified exit form must be

    legalized by their local authorities, e.g. police,

    immigration authorities, etc.


    For travel within the Schengen area: travel documents are not
    generally required for travel within the Schengen area for
    immigration purposes, however, it is strongly recommended that

    the minor be in possession of the exit form, as passengers may
    be subject to random checks.

    Thank you for that information. Where it says a passport is required for entry is that a Dominican passport because if a person is a permanent resident of Canada and not a citizen they will not have a Canadian passport.

    They need their DR passport since that is all they have and a tourist visa from Spain in advance of boarding. That part may be tough.

    Default Visa requierements

    Yes a Dominican Citizen living in Canada will need a visa to enter Spain,but the easier isnt that hard to obtain..definatly much easier than for a dominican living in DR

    my friend recently went to get her spanish visa in Newyork (which Im sure it has the same requierements as in Canada)

    and they asked for

    a Roundtrip ticket
    Her resident card
    Passport

    Hotel reservation
    and a Bank statement proving she had fund in the bank
    or if she didnt have a bank account she could bring it in form of travelors checks

    she wanted a visa for 10 days..and they gave her one for 60 days

    No major problems...Most dominicans already living in Canada/USA wont go to spain to live illegally when they could have a better life where they reside
    if you have any questions feel free to send me a message

    Default Lots of paperwork and proof needed

    Kim,

    Im sorry to say that the visa requirements for Spain are as stringent as any other country in the EEC. If he doesnt have a Canadian passport, the requirements are the same as a Dominican travelling to any part of Europe, USA, Canada. etc., Good luck.
