British fans who want to attend music festivals in Spain may have to prove that they can spend €100 a day during their visit to the neighboring country. It is one of the new measures brought about by Brexit, adopted by the Spanish government.
According to “Mixmag”, those traveling from the UK may be required to show their return ticket, as well as provide details of their accommodation, when they arrive in Spain.
Additionally, you will have to prove that you can pay for your stay, by presenting checks, cash or bank statements. In addition to the 100 euros mentioned, the British will have to prove that they have an additional minimum of 900 euros.
The Spanish Ministry of the Interior justified this decision on the basis that citizens of “third countries” (extra-European Union) have a duty to prove that they have “economic resources” to enter the country.
British travel agencies have already criticized these measures, arguing that British citizens significantly boost tourism in Spain.
Travel companies have called against tightening policies, arguing that Britons significantly boost Spain’s tourism sector.
Every year, festivals such as Mad Cool (Madrid), BBK (Bilbao) and Primavera Sound (Barcelona) welcome thousands of fans from the UK.
