The Spanish Consulate in Cordoba, Argentina.
Andrey and I are in the process of obtaining a Schengen Visa with Spain as our first port of entry. I was very happy to learn that there is a Spanish Consulate in Cordoba. This saves us a trip to Buenos Aires because you have to apply for the Schengen visa in person. We contacted the Spanish Consulate a couple of times prior to our visit to inquire about the process and documents that are required. A prompt response by the Consulate with all the information and a formal appointment to come and see them.
The Spanish Consulate is centrally located in Cordoba and very easy to find. The office of the Consulate is situated in a beautiful white colonial building in a tree-lined street close to the city centre.
The appointment was scheduled for 9 am and I was asked to stand in a row until it was my turn. The staff was very friendly and helpful and it took less than 20 minutes to have my documents checked and submitted. All my documents was in order before the time and I made copies of all the original documents.
