Required Travel Documents

International Travelers: Citizens of certain countries may require special documentation or travel visas to enter Spain. Please check with your nearest consulate to arrange any special travel documents required for this trip. Note: If your passport expires within six months of your travel dates, you must renew your passport prior to your trip. Again, please check with your nearest consulate.

If you will be visiting multiple countries during your trip, please check with the consulate of each country listed on your flight itinerary to make sure you have all the necessary travel documents. Country-specific travel documents may be required when connecting through countries other than your final destination.

If you are a citizen of a United States Visa Waiver Program (VWP) country, and your flight itinerary will take you on a connecting flight through the United States, you are required to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization or ESTA at least 72 hours prior to travel in order to transit through the U.S. For additional information regarding the requirements and to apply, visit the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Once you have obtained your ESTA travel authorization, it will be valid for two years or the duration of your passport validity, whichever is shorter. The ESTA requires the same information as the paper I-94W form that VWP travelers formerly filled out en route to the U.S. Should you have questions or require assistance, contact your nearest U.S. Embassy. Note: You will still need to provide your airline or carrier with details of your passport, country of residence and the address of your first night's accommodation.

U.S. Citizens: You must have a valid passport to travel to Spain. Without a valid passport that matches the name on your airline reservation, you will not be permitted to board your flight. Note: The government of Spain only requires passports for U.S. citizens to be valid three months beyond your travel dates. However, if you will be extending your trip or visiting any other country – even on connecting flights – your passport should be valid at least six months beyond your travel dates, as validity requirements vary by country. If your passport will expire within three months of your travel dates (or within six months of your travel dates, depending on your plans and/or flight itinerary), you must renew your passport prior to your trip.

Passport Copies: It is recommended that you make several photocopies of your passport prior to traveling. Please leave copies at home with family members and carry copies in your carry-on luggage. If your passport is lost or stolen, this will make the reissuance of your passport much easier.
