The main paper upon which the Consulate issues a business visa to Spain is the official invitation of the host party, written in Spanish or English. This document confirms the authenticity of the entrepreneurial intentions and gives an idea of the applicant's occupation. It is drawn up on the organization's letterhead and contains the following key points:
- contact details of the Spanish company;
- personal information about the person entering: name, surname, date of birth, passport number and nationality;
- exact date of travel;
- purpose of travel;
- details of the specific host staff member in the organization.
Transparency in the description of travel expenses and the willingness of the inviting company to take over the financial support of the partner's stay are recommended.
