Visa-free entry requirements for Spain

Nevertheless, it’s crucial to understand that even if your country is exempt from the visa requirement, there are still specific prerequisites that need to be fulfilled in order to enter Spain. The followings are the required documents for all citizens of countries above to enter Spain without visa:

  • A valid passport or travel document is essential. It should remain valid for at least three months beyond the intended departure from the Schengen region and must have been issued within the last ten years prior to entry.
  • Depending on your nationality, a valid visa may be necessary. However, having a valid residence permit or a long-term visa from a Schengen State exempts you from needing a visa. The list of nationalities requiring a visa can be found in Annex I of Regulation (EU) 2018/1806.
  • To support the purpose and conditions of your planned stay, you may need to provide specific documents if requested by the authorities. These documents can include:
    • A round-trip or return ticket.
    • For business trips, an invitation from a company or authority for a meeting, documentation demonstrating a professional relationship, or access cards for trade fairs or congresses.
    • For tourist or private visits, proof of a confirmed reservation for an organized trip, evidence of accommodation, or a letter of invitation from a private individual (note that this letter only confirms accommodation availability and does not exempt the traveler from other entry requirements). The proof of accommodation may specify whether it covers the traveler’s living expenses.
    • For study trips, training programs, non-work internships, or volunteer work lasting less than three months, you may need to provide enrollment documents, proof of admission to an educational institution, an internship contract, or proof of participation in a volunteer program.
    • For other travel purposes, you may be required to present an invitation, reservation, program details, or a certificate of participation in related activities, as well as entrance cards/tickets or receipts.
  • Sufficient funds for your stay. In 2024, the minimum amount required is of $120 per person per day. In any case, and regardless of the length of stay, the traveller must have at least $1100 or its equivalent in foreign currency.

By fulfilling these requirements, you can enjoy visa-free entry to Spain and embark on a memorable journey in this captivating country.
