September 10, 2022
We have been getting emails asking us if placements are still being given out. As you know, this is done in Spain and we are based in the US and Canada. To this end, the Ministry of Education of Spain has informed us that placements are still being given out. In addition, there have been withdrawals and these positions also need to be filled. If you receive a late placement, please know that schools in Spain will be accommodating concerning delays, as they are aware that you will have to apply for a visa. Just make sure to keep them updated with your situation.
Unfortunately, we are unable to inform everyone individually that they will not receive a placement due to the administrative complexity of the program with so many offices involved. Once we are officially informed that no more placements will be given out, we will post this information on our website.
We greatly appreciate your understanding and thank you for your interest in NALCAP.

Please remember that you have 3 days to either accept or decline the placement. You will ONLY be accepting or declining on the PROFEX platform following the instructions in section 2.6 of the Application Guidelines. This is the only way to do it. You do not have to send anyone an email.
You cannot apply for a visa until July 1 (3 months before your start date in Spain). You must also have received your Letter of Acceptance in order to apply.
However, in order to get the process rolling, once you have a PLAZA ACEPTADA status you can begin to gather the required paperwork for your visa application, especially the background check as it takes longer.
Kindly note that some of the Canadians offices that issue background checks may experience delays in issuing this document, as well as the subsequent official translation.
Typically, a background checks should not be over 3 months old once you hand it in with your visa application.
Check for specific requirements with your local Consulate General of Spain.
