Entry requirements into Spain

January 2021 - New filter for British passengers who do not need a visa

Alicante-Elche Airport has enabled a special filter in the arrivals hall to cater for all the movement of passengers arriving every year in Alicante from Britain.   UK passports will be 'stamped' showing entry & exit dates.

  • British citizens will be able to come visa-free to Spain, as well as to any country in the Schengen zone, for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.  Check your holidays fall within these restrictions by using the Schengen Visa Calculator here.

British residents in the EU are illegally having their passports stamped by border patrol on entry. If you are a resident your passport should NOT be stamped. 

The main issue is that a passport stamp means, in theory at least, that the person has entered the Schengen area as a visitor not as a resident, so setting off the 90 day clock, so there could be issues down the line, in April, when they get to the end of the permitted period for visitors.
