01:32 - Brexit: British Nationals Refused Entry in Spain proof of residency required

A group of British nationals who arrived in Spain without the needed documentation were sent back to the United Kingdom as they failed to present proof of residency.

British nationals not covered by the Withdrawal Agreement are considered third-country nationals by EU member states.

Under the current rules, if an individual is not a resident of Spain, you will be required to apply for permission in order to remain there for more than 90 days.

Under the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, all British nationals residing in Spain would have their rights to stay in Spain secured.

However, authorities in Spain have implemented the obligation of obtaining a residency document known as the TIE (Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjero). TIE is a biometric card with the details of foreigners who live in Spain.

02:37 - Coronavirus Response

Last December, Spain’s government imposed entry bans and other restrictions for third-country nationals in order to halt the further spread of the deadly virus.

It also limited entry to all individuals, besides residents of Spain and individuals who could prove their journey is essential under one of the permitted reasons to enter Spain.

British nationals heading to Spain claimed that when they reached the terminal on 29 March, they saw a sign which stated, “No TIE card, no entry.”

Security staff at Spain’s airports were required to demand proof of residency from all travellers wishing to enter the country from the United Kingdom.

03:37 - Alternate Documents

British nationals who have not yet applied for a residence document and wish to travel back to Spain should carry evidence that demonstrates you are resident in Spain.

This could include a tenancy agreement or a utility bill in your name, dating from 2020.

If you cannot show that you are resident in Spain, you may be asked additional questions at the border to enter the Schengen area, and your passport may be stamped on entry and exit. This will not affect your rights in Spain.

Currently, entry to Spain is only permitted for passengers who can demonstrate their journey is 'essential' as well as those legally resident in the country, the embassy added.
