I'm a Non-EU student studying in the UK.

Is it possible to apply for the Spain visa with a bank statement less than 3 months? Mine is only 2 and a half months because that's how long I've been in the UK.

I think this is a valid Travel question. Why is the close votes? – Heidel Ber Gensis Dec 10 '12 at 11:50
This question is confusing. Is it possible to apply for what? – Nate Eldredge Dec 10 '12 at 14:24
@NateEldredge Spain (schengen) visa, the title says it.. – Heidel Ber Gensis Dec 10 '12 at 15:33
@HaLaBi sorry but the title doesnt say it. It's not really clear what is asked here – Dirty-flow Dec 10 '12 at 16:00
It's still quite hard to understand what you're asking. I realise English is possibly not your first language, but let me try and work this out. You're saying you want a Spanish Schengen visa? And you need to provide 3 months worth of Bank statements, but only have 2.5? – Mark Mayo Dec 10 '12 at 17:48

The simple answer is no. It's a requirement from the embassy to provide bank statements for the last three months, and if you haven't had a bank account that long your Schengen visa application is very likely to be rejected.
