As Spain is a member of the European Union (EU) and a signatory to the Schengen Agreement, entry into the country is very simple.

- Unaccompanied minors must be in possession of a valid identity document, parental authorisation to leave the country and a photocopy of the identification of the responsible parent(s).
- For nationals of non-member countries: for a stay of less than 3 months, many countries do not require a visa. Only a valid passport is required.

Transfer from airport to Barcelona
Close to the city centre (barely 15 kilometres), Barcelona-El Prat International Airport (BCN) has the benefit of being easily accessible by road or rail. In addition to taking a taxi, Aerobus and the metro are all good alternatives for a quick and affordable transfer to Plaça d'Espanya or Plaça de Catalunya, whereas the train is ideal for reaching Barcelona’s two main stations for a small price: Barcelona Sants and Passeig de Gracia.
- Taxi: stations are situated in front of the exits to Terminals 1 and 2. Count between 20 and 30 minutes to reach the city centre.
