Advocacy Alert: U.S. Student Visas for Spain

On August 9th, The Forum on Education Abroad, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, and the Association of North American Programs in Spain (APUNE) issued another joint letter to the Spanish Embassy to address the ongoing challenges in getting student visas processed by Spanish consulates. As demand from U.S. students to study in Spain in the spring and summer of 2023 is poised to exceed pre-pandemic levels and overwhelm understaffed consulates, The Forum reassures our Members that this issue remains front and center in our efforts to advocate on their behalf. We thank NAFSA and APUNE for their continued collaboration in the effort to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.
