Brits could be asked to prove they can spend "€100 a day" to holiday in Ibiza

British tourists heading to Ibiza and other parts of Spain could be asked to prove that they can afford to spend €100 (£85) per day while on holiday.

In line with new restrictions set out by the Spanish government, Brits could also be asked to show proof of a return or onward flight, and provide details of accommodation while staying in the Balearics or Spain this summer.

“At Spanish border control, you may need to show a return or onward ticket; show you have enough money for your stay; show proof of accommodation for your stay,” the UK Foreign Office stated.

“For example, a hotel booking confirmation, proof of address if visiting your own property (e.g second home), or an invitation from your host or proof of their address if staying with a third party, friends or family."

Holidaymakers will need to prove that they have a minimum of €900 (£765) before heading to the White Isle or other parts of Spain, according to the Express. This could be in cheques, cash, or bank statements.

The Spanish Ministry del Interior also added that those from third countries (countries that are non-EU/non-shengen but have permission to travel freely within Spain) must prove that they have the “economic resources” for entering the country “which must also be proven to have sufficient funds available on them”.

Since leaving the EU, the UK now comes under the “third country” category and so must comply with new restrictions.

Travel firms and companies have argued against this decision, stating that the UK hugely benefits Spain’s tourism and contributes to a large part of its sector.
