24 November, 2022duguech
The Extension of stay for studies is the renewal of the initial permit that allows the holder of this authorization to carry out a training activity, a university degree, an exchange for studies, research projects or to provide a volunteer service.
- It can be done personally or through a legal representative.
- The application for the Extension of Stay for studies is submitted at any Immigration Office in the province where the student is going to continue his studies.
- It must be submitted within 60 calendar days prior to the expiration date of the initial authorization, or within 90 calendar days thereafter.
- The resolution will be given during the three months following the date of submission of the application. Once this period has expired, if there is no response, it is understood that the application has not been admitted.
- If the result is favorable, the student has 30 days to request a new appointment at the Immigration Office to process the Alien Identity Card (TIE).
