IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Spain has announced that beginning Oct. 1, Saturdays will be considered nonworking days for purposes of immigration processing.
What does the change mean? Processing will take longer than it previously did, as Saturdays will no longer be considered business days when calculating processing times.
BAL Analysis: Businesses should take note of the change and adjust timelines if necessary. Employers may want to consider filing time-sensitive applications earlier than normal due to the change in how processing times will be calculated.
