Passports and Visas

Most non-European citizens entering Spain must bring a valid passport. For European nationals a valid identity card suffices. Most foreign participants must also acquire an entry visa from the diplomatic mission that represents Spain in their home country. Plan well ahead of time, since issuing an entry visa may take weeks. In general, the applicant must apply in person.

More information can be found at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs website.


Participants are advised to take care of their own personal insurance. JEELS-2016 organizers will carry no responsibility in case of an accident, sickness, theft or other property damage.
