  • Arts. 4 ff. of the Aliens Regulation

These requirements can be summarized as:

  • Possess a Visa when required.
  • Show documents justifying the purpose and conditions of the planned stay and have sufficient means to support themselves, both during the period of their planned stay and for their return to their country of origin or passage to a third State where their admittance is guaranteed, or they must be in conditions such that they can legally obtain such means.
  • Not be banned from entering into Spain or any other country in the Schengen Space.
  • Not represent a threat to Spain's public order, national security, or international relations, or to those of any other member country of the Schengen Space.
