re-entering Spain as a tourist after being here as a student

Postby salud » Wed Apr 27, 2005 5:33 pm

Hi everybody. I have a quick question... I have spent the last two years in Spain studying, legally. First I had a six month visa, and then an extranjero residency card. My card is expiring in June, and within two weeks of that date, I am back on a plane to the United States. I already asked at the local comiseria here, and they said this isn't a problem (over staying my residency card two weeks). However, I will be returning to Spain at the end of July, and marrying my Spanish boyfriend in September.

Long story long, my question is this... Does the 90 day re-entrance waiting period apply to me, even if I was in Spain legally? I figured it didn't since now I am here as a student, and later I will re-enter as a tourist. I also know it is technically not legal to enter without a return ticket, but I'm hoping they will understand why I have not yet purchased it.. as I am not positive as to if we will go back to the States together or if I will apply for my residency card through my marriage.

Thank you for any light you can shed....

As you were not staying in Spain all along with the same kind of visa, I do not think it is really a problem. However I strongly advise you to go to the Spanish consulate and ask advice, especially regarding your ticket, as you do not want to have any problem delaying your marriage for sure.
