Passports and visas

You don’t need a visa to travel to Spain, but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay.

Remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night. It could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.

You must provide photographic ID (your passport) with you at all times.

If you lose your passport, you’ll need to get an Emergency Travel Document from the British Consulate in Barcelona.

Getting to the stadium

The stadium is located about 20/30 minutes (by all forms of transport) from the centre of Barcelona; Metro Palau Reial station is the best way to get there.

At the match

Tottenham fans should enter through external gate, Access 21 where there will be an initial ticket check and searching; you should be at the stadium by 6.45 pm.

Wheelchair viewing areas will be available to Tottenham supporters on Level 1.

Visiting supporters will be kept behind for around 20 minutes after the match to allow the home fans to leave.


As in any other city beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre and when using public transport - only carry what you need and leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits.
