Receiving your regional placement

Once you have an ADMITIDA status, you have to wait until you receive a regional placement. Please see our timeline for a general idea. We appreciate your patience.

You will receive the following message from this email address

Ha sido adjudicada la plaza en <DESC_ZONA_GEOGRAFICA> - <DESC_PAIS> a su solicitud <NUMERO_SOLICITUD> del programa de Auxiliares de Conversación en España.\n\n Si desea ACEPTAR, hágalo en la aplicación Profex en el plazo de TRES (3) días naturales a partir de la recepción de este mensaje

DESC_ZONA_GEOGRAFICA will be substituted by the name of the region of Spain.

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.

Plaza aceptada status and starting to request your background checks

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 both the background check and its corresponding legalization (the Apostille) are handled by American offices and that these processes may take many weeks at certain locations. In most cases, you will also have to translate the background check.

Background checks cannot be over 5 months old once you hand it in with your visa application.

Check for specific requirements with your local Consulate General of Spain.

Breaking news

Background checks now have a validity of 5 months.

They must also be FBI background checks.

Please request a background check as soon as you accept your regional placement and your status on PROFEX is PLAZA ACEPTADA.
