For the attention of British tourists in Spain: the rules of residence have changed

Tourists planning a trip to Spain have been warned about new rules. From now on, Britons staying with friends or relatives may need an official letter of invitation from the host.

This is due to the tightening of control over the residence of travelers from outside the EU. This is not a handwritten note or message, but an official document, Express writes.

Non-EU passport holders must have proof of residence for the entire duration of their stay in a tourist country if they come to Spain as tourists for 90 days or less. An electronic confirmation of a hotel, hostel, or private rental accommodation will do.

However, when it comes to staying with friends or relatives, you will need to have a separate document - a "carta de invitación".

It can cost up to 68 pounds sterling to get an invitation letter. It will be valid for 90 days. You need to show the "carta de invitación" at customs.

Fines of up to £8,500 or more are imposed on the host for not having an invitation or for exceeding the 90-day stay limit.

The host must be responsible for their guests and have an EU passport.
