If you are not participating in group processing you should secure your in-person visa appointment now if an appointment is required. NOTE: The Spanish consulate in NY no longer requires appointments. You can drop off an envelope with your complete application Monday through Friday from 8:30am until 2pm. Appointment slots fill up fast at consulates where appointments are required! Please see this list of jurisdictional consulates to see where you would need to apply. Remember even if your permanent address is not in New York you are eligible to apply in New York if you attend school in New York.
