The Spanish student visa permits the visa holder to work temporarily during the course of the academic years. However, there are certain conditions that a student needs to keep in mind. The working hours should not surpass the limit of 20 hours per week and the part-time job should not meddle with the study schedule of the student. However, you can work full-time during holidays but not for more than 3 months.
There are a few more things to keep in mind:
● The employer has to acquire a work permit from the Foreign Nationals Office if he wants to give a student holder a job.
● The contract of employment should not surpass the total course duration of the study visa.
A point to note is that for the training and internships that are a part of the education program, the student does not need to obtain a work permit.
On average, the part-time job salary in Spain for international students is between €8 and €20.
