However, if you’re traveling from a country outside of the EU or EEA, you may need a visa. Be sure to check with the Spanish embassy or consulate in your country to confirm the specific requirements.
For example. a non-EU/EEA traveler will need to present several documents as follows: a valid passport, a visa, proof of accommodation, a round-trip ticket, documents that prove the purpose of entry.

Lastly, it’s important to have your flight or train tickets and any reservations you have made, such as hotel or tour reservations. This will help you to prove your itinerary and the length of your stay in the country.
By having all the necessary documents, you will be able to enjoy your trip to Spain without any interruption and make the most of your time there.
