My wife and I hope to take our two minor children for a school year in Asturias, Spain. The kids seemingly need to obtain student visas for minors, but two parts of the puzzle may be in conflict.
The visa application calls for "An acceptance letter from public or private school in Spain you will be attending, confirming your status as a full time student in Spain." Meanwhile, we have not been able to take part in the normal school enrollment process, which depends on being resident in Spain. I contacted several primary schools and they pointed me towards a quick process of "extraordinary matriculation" which we can begin once we have an address in Spain. Of course, now applying for our visas and identification numbers, we have not yet been able to arrive and rent an apartment.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
