Do citizens of the UK need a Schengen Visa or ETIAS for Spain?
UK citizens are not required to obtain a Schengen visa for travel to Spain. However, starting in 2025, they must acquire the ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) for such travels. This new travel authorization will give you access to 30 European countries and four microstates.
The ETIAS is a multiple-entry document that is valid for three years and permits a stay of up to 90 days within 180 days each time.
