Spain streamlines passport processing for Brits
Some positive news for British holidaymakers
British travellers can now use the Automated Border Control eGates at certain Spanish Airports
Due to Brexiit, travellers previously had to use the manual non-EU lanes to enter and exit Spain.
This has now been reversed to cut huge queues at terminals.
It is applicable at Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Girona, Gran Canaria, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Madrid, Málaga, Mallorca, Menorca, Valencia, Fuerteventura, Sevilla, and Tenerife Sur.
The Foreign Office warned Brits to ensure they have their passports stamped by border officers upon entry.
“If there is no record of entry a person could be accused of overstaying and face possible penalties,”The UK Foreign Office wrote
“On arrival or departure, check you are eligible to use the e-gates and that you are in the right queue.”
