Hola, planning my pilgimage on Camino Frances for May-June 2008 and realized I will be there more than 30 days. Am a U.S. citizen that has travelled to Spain before but never for more than a week or two..Will I need a Visa?

Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

Here's a quote from the section on Spain and Andorra:

ENTRY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS: A passport is required for both countries. U.S. citizens can stay without a visa for a tourist/business stay of up to 90 days.

So, looks like you're OK (I was in Spain for over 40 days, and I was good to go without a Visa - although I'd recommend bringing a Visa credit card that you can use for cash advances...) :arrow:
