Is visa required for South African passport holder, residing in germany with german wife to visit Canary Island as tourist for 2 weeks. If not, how to apply for a Carta de Invitacion?

    Hi, I recently visited spain with a S.African passport. My wife has a British passport so I'm seen as a spouse of an EU Citizen. What you'll need is a schengen visa, but they arent as strict and there are less requirements due to your EU spouse. Best is to check with the Spanish embassy in Germany

    Do we need visas ?
