My wife and I are planning on walking the Camino Portugues from Porto to Santiago in July of this year. I am a U.S. Citizen. She is Chinese and has a Green Card. Last time we walked (2013) we were both living in China and she did not have her Green Card yet and she had to get a Shengen Visa. Now we live in Hawaii I understand that is easier to get a Shengen Visa with a Green card. It looks like there are lots of companies that will help her apply, but it also looks like "buyer beware." Any suggestions of agencies to use? Also, does anyone know where to get the Shengen Application Form. It says it is available on the Spanish Consulate site, but I can't find it.

I STRONGLY recommend you contact the nearest Spanish Consulate. Also check their US Embassy / Consulate web pages, at:

http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Embajadas/WASHINGTON/en/Pages/inicio2.aspx

I know the rules for US Citizens. I do not know the rules with someone holding underlying citizenship from a third-party country. Logically, it should be easy. But, with immigration rules, one never knows.

I advise against taking chances or making assumptions.

Hope this helps.

You apply for a Schengen visa based on country of citizenship, not residence. You should be able to work out of either of the consular offices in San Francisco or Los Angeles.
