I am an Indian. I am doing my research in the USA(Saint Louis). I will be going back to India and then will be going to Europe for academic conference( Spain 20th to 25th of May, then Hungary 26th May to 1st June and then Italy from 2nd June to 7th of June) from India this summer. I am completely blind after calling the Spain consulate here in Saint Louis. My concern is for the European short term visa So,
- Can I apply for a visa from the USA although I will leaving for Spain from India?
- Do I have to apply for a student visa there or tourist visa as the available dates in Spanish consulate for a tourist visa is 7th of May(that is impossible for me) and for student visa there are many dates?
- Then will applying for the visa in one consulate be enough as this will be Schengen visa as per my knowledge?
