Do I need a VISA to go to Spain?​
For Korean citizens, you can travel for 90 days at maximum as a tourist without a VISA which means that if the football activity you are inteterested in is held for less than 90 days in Spain, you do not need to worry about apply a VISA to go to Spain. However, if you would like a program of long period more than 90 days, you need to apply a VISA. In general, it’s for those who want to join a football academy (study and football) or club for a prolonged period. In this case, NAIS Football will advise you the visa process and procedure.

When does an academy start a program?​
An academic year in Spain starts in August or September and completes in the end of June. It is applied to both in schools and football clubs. It’d be optimal if you join the academy when they start a new academic year. However, if you wishes to start as soon as possible or at a specific date, you may do so as long as the academy is in operation.​

Which type of VISA do I need to stay in Spain for an academy (in case I stay more than 90 days?) ​
You need a student visa. Since you finished the enrollment, your academy sends you an admission letter to be submitted to the Spanish Embassy in your country, which certifies that you are going to study at their institution. NAISFootball will guide you through the VISA process. ​

Can I pay the tuition fees in installments? ​
Yes, the academies offer the possibility of the installment pay. ​

Will someone come to pick up the player when she/he arrives at the airport? ​
Yes. A staff from academy will be waiting for the player in the airport and take her/him to the residence. ​

Can my child play competition games of her/his academy? ​
It is a very sensitive issue and many parents want to know about this clearly. NAIS Football gives you an answer with correct information since it is a topic that has created a lot of controversy and doubts to the parents and the young players who want to play in Spain. ​

Few years ago the official FIFA organization decided to establish the rules that regulated the international transfer of minors. This regulation causes now that minors who moves to another country face to many difficulties in gaining a license that allows them to play federated matches (championship leagues regulated by the national and territorial football associations linked to UEFA and the FIFA in the European continent). ​

FIFA’s rules say players aged 18 or under can only be transferred abroad if one of three criteria are met: 1) if their parents emigrated for non-footballing reasons, 2) both clubs are in the EU or European Economic Area and the player is aged between 16 and 18, or 3)the player lives within 100km of the new club.​

As you can see these conditions make it almost impossible for the young players who move to the oversea academies to play. This is the reality and it’s important to know the truth. ​

The academies that work with NAIS Football cannot provide licenses to the players but organize friendly matches weekly so that the players continuously have rhythm of competition. The academies arrange matches against local teams in the area and against top-level teams. Apart from this, the academies participate in major tournaments organized by private organizations during different dates, offering players the chance to compete at a high level. ​

There are some academies whose players play in the federation leagues, but their participation and classification in these games are in many limited circumstances. For instance, the other team who was supposed to play with your team could call off the competition because your team technically violates the FIFA rule, even though it rarely happens. Frankly speaking, it is then okay that your child has an opportunity to play in the federation match, but if somebody reports it to the concerned federation, your children will be banned from their matches. Thus, it is important that parents should know this situation clearly from the beginning. Nevertheless, these academies prioritize the opportunities to play in the matches and satisfaction of their players who are eager to play matches as many as possible. The academies and clubs continue fighting against the present regulation on international transfer of minors.​

If you are told by someone that your children can go to an academy or club in another country and can play in the federation matches without any problem or condition, it is false and it means that they will surely seek to use this false information to attract clients for their own advantages. ​

What activities do you have on the weekends? ​
The players usually have football games on the weekends. When they don’t have any, they usually go to assist to football games, or they have some cultural and recreational activities outside the residence. Some academies provide optional individual training lesson with extra fees. ​

Will my child be promoted to a higher-level team? ​
Any player who joins our academies will be more likely to be recruited by a stronger team. With the systematic training by professionals and games against these teams, your child will understand the football much better in many aspects. His/her improved skill and performance will be seen by the recruiters of the great clubs. Just the fact that you are trained in a Spanish academy already gives you the great opportunities to be exposed to the scouters. ​

Is it easy to join the professional teams? ​
Of course not, it is not easy. ​
NAIS Football is not going to trick you by promising things that are very complicated. The level of the Professional club’s youth teams in the Spanish first division teams is VERY high. It is very difficult to be part of these teams if you do not have such a high level. As the young players from everywhere in the world come to Spain just like your child, the compatition is beyond your imigination. Very few manage to have a chance to enter these teams. However, it is true that being part of the academies NAIS Football introduce to you is going to help your child to improve his/her level of performance and skill, also physically and mentally.
