Spain Visa Requirements
If you travel to Spain for just a holiday you must produce a valid passport or other identifying material, depending on which country you are visiting from.
For permanent residents of countries including Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Switzerland and other EU countries it is ok to produce a national identification document, not necessarily a passport.
Consult your local tourist information bureau if you are unsure of what you will need.
For foreign nationals of other countries including China, Thailand, Indonesia and other Asian or Oceanic countries you may need to apply for a travel visa.
The best place to find information on the required travel documents is your country's Spanish embassy, if you have one, or the Spain Tourist Information Centre.
Permanent residents of the North American continent do not necessarily need a visa, if you are only going for a short holiday.
If you are looking to migrate to or work in Spain for more than three months, it is a good idea to consult a Spanish embassy or tourist information bureau.
For foreign nationals currently living in North America you must check in with your local immigration office so that they can determine what type of visa you may require, depending on your nationality and working/residential status.
