Entry to Spain Will Cost €7 for Non-EU Travelers

Starting in 2025, British and other non-EU visitors will be required to pay a €7 fee to enter Spain, as part of new European regulations.

This fee applies to travelers from the UK, US, Brazil, Japan, and 53 other countries visiting Spain and other EU nations.

The fee is part of the European Travel Information and Authorisation Scheme (ETIAS), which mandates a €7 charge for non-EU citizens aged between 18 and 70. This scheme aims to streamline entry processes and enhance security across the EU.

The system was supposed to come into effect in November 2023 but was delayed due to concerns from EU member states.

The ETIAS system, set to be implemented in 2025, will require travelers to obtain authorization before entering any EU country. This small fee will cover the cost of processing the necessary travel authorizations.

Spain, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, has seen a steady growth in tourism over the years. The introduction of this fee might impact travel decisions, but it is also seen as a way to manage tourism growth sustainably.
