Please take the following into consideration if you are going to be requesting that we open a bank account for you ahead of your arrival, so that you can take care of living, tuition and other expenses:
- If you have a Spanish passport (dual-nationality) then you will also need to provide either a copy of your DNI/NIE card or a letter from your local Spanish Embassy specifying that you live and work outside of Spain, and therefore do not pay taxes in Spain.
- As an alternative, use your other passport as proof that you are a national of another country where you are presumably a tax paying national.
In either case, for Financial Aid to open your Caja Madrid bank account ahead of arrival to Madrid, we need you to send a copy of the photo page of your passport and a copy of your admissions letter.
Non-Spanish nationals who have 1 or more nationalities which are not Spanish do not need to worry about this post, as any of your passports will suffice.
The special restriction for students with Spanish dual-nationality is due to taxation laws in Spain.
