The summer holidays have landed, and the FCDO has updated it’s travel advice for Spain. If you’re travelling to the country you may need to show border control three essential travel documents upon arrival:
This is broken down as a minimum of 100 euros each day plus an additional minimum of 900 euros. The Spanish Ministry del Interior, added: “Foreigners from third countries must prove if required to do so by the officials in charge of controlling the entry of people into Spanish territory, that they have economic resources for entering the country, through cash, traveller’s cheques, payment letters, or credit cards, which must also be proven to have sufficient funds available on them.”
Due to the UK’s departure from the EU, Brits also have additional requirements that they need to follow when entering a Schengen country.
Here are five other things to consider before you embark on your Spanish adventure:
Any visitor into Spain and the Schengen area need to ensure that their passport has been stamped on entry and exit. If these are missed, border guards will presume that you have overstayed your visa-free limit. You can show evidence of when and where you entered or exited the Schengen area, and ask the border guards to add this date and location in your passport. Acceptable evidence includes boarding passes and tickets – keep them in a safe place.
If you’re visiting a country within this area you can travel for up to 90days in any 180-day period without a visa. You need to ensure that your whole visit whether this is as a tourist, visiting family or friends, attend business meetings, cultural or sport events or for short term studies or training is within the 90-day limit. If you plan on visiting Spain for more than 90days you will be required to apply for a visa. Be aware any visit to a Schengen country within the previous 180 days before you travel counts towards your 90days.
If you’re aged 18 or over and instructed by airport staff, you can use the e-gates were in operation. Once you have passed through the e-gate, don’t forget to hand in your passport to the border officer for stamping.
Always check the FCDO advice before travelling.
