Permanent SPANISH resident.

Colombian Citizen.

Wants to apply for tourist visa to visit and be a tourist for the summer ;)

College student who has never had a job in their lives.

Has never left Spain since arrived 15 years ago.

is in process of becoming a Spanish Citizen (has been for a year now)

also has entire family in Spain. Has the Carnet de Familia Numerosa.

Is a university student... (what info does he need? A student ID?)

funny enough, he can't just "register" for next semester until September. (ugh spain and their ways) but he does have a form that says he needs to retake some exams in September.

Also, parents would show their bank info since they are supporting the trip.

Is 3 months a long time to stay? Would this be a cause for denial?

Any tips? Advice? Has anyone gone through the embassy at Madrid for a tourist visa?

I know it's a long shot, but might as well have a try.

If he's a student all he has to do is to provide proof of status as a student from the university. Usually a 'status letter' provided by the university addressed to the embassy on behalf of the student for purpose of the B1/B2 visa. That's all he has going for him since he doesn't work or own property. Proof of funds would also be beneficial.

3 months is fine, since they give up to I think 6 months on entry.

No harm in your boyfriend trying.

Your boyfriend can always apply and see what happens. He does not seem too have overwhelming ties but I've seen people approved with less.

Good luck
