Proof of funds to enter Spain: What is really means

Thursday, 28 Jul, 2022 0

The Spanish Tourist Office in the UK has spoken out in a bid to counter misleading headlines.

Headlines stating Spain and the EU are ‘punishing’ British holidaymakers for leaving the EU is untrue, says Manuel Butler, Spanish Tourist Office director.

Tabloids have started retracting

Random checks regarding non-EU holidaymakers have always been in place.

“This is not a new rule. It’s not exclusive for UK travellers and it’s not a Spain-only requirement,”   Butler said.

The requirement for UK travellers to be able to illustrate sufficient means for the duration of their stay and the return is established in the Schengen Borders Code and is not a Spain-specific requirement.”

This is not a new requirement and has been in place for some time for visitors from outside of the European Union or Schengen area.”

€100 (£85) per day has-been quoted as reasonable funds.

“When entering Spain, these checks are not systematically carried out for every traveller.”

Likewise, travellers coming to the UK are also required to show that they have specific means to support themselves and any dependents for the duration of the trip.”
