Visa- and Entry- Requirements for Mallorca

The island of Mallorca belongs to Spain. It is, therefore, part of the European Union and the Schengen agreement. The visa and entry requirements for visitors to Mallorca depend on nationality and intended length of stay.

In addition to passport and visa requirements, you will also need to double-check that you have the right Covid documentation. Please see our Covid page for more information on this.

Passport- and Visa- Requirements for Non-EU / Non-Schengen Nationals

Passport validity

The following passport entry requirements apply to all nationals from non-EU / non-Schengen countries. Your passport needs to fulfil two criteria:

  • Valid for 3 months or more after the day you leave Mallorca/Spain. Please check the expiry date of your passport.
    AND
  • Less than 10 years old when you travel to Mallorca/Spain. This is calculated from the date of issue.

These entry requirements are based on the information provided by the European Union. However, some airlines are currently requesting passport validity of 6 months or more at the time of travel, so please double-check your airline’s requirements.

It is important that you check the validity of your passport in good time before you travel, to give you sufficient time to apply for a renewal, should this be necessary.

Visa requirements

Different visa requirements apply, depending on your nationality. Nationals of several countries do not require a visa for shorter trips and holidays, including

  • The United Kingdom
  • The United States
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Israel
  • Japan
  • and many others

Please see the European Union website for a full list of countries whose nationals are exempt from the visa requirement.

For the above nationals, the following rules apply for travel to Mallorca:

  • You can stay up to 90 days in any 180-day period.
  • However, if you are also visiting other EU countries, you will need to check that you do not spend more than 90 days in total across all the countries you visit, in any given 180-day period.
  • Different rules apply for business travel and longer stays.

A visa for travel to Mallorca is required if

  • You are planning to stay longer than the time period detailed above.
  • You are a national of another non-Schengen / non-EU country that is not listed in the above link.

If you do require a visa, you will need to apply for this at the Spanish embassy in your country of residence prior to travelling to Mallorca.

Additional requirements / documentation

If you are visiting Mallorca as a tourist from a non-EU / non-Schengen country, you will need to meet the following additional requirements:

  • Be in possession of a return ticket or ticket for onward travel
  • Have a proof of address for your stay in Mallorca
  • Have enough money to support yourself during your stay in Mallorca. Currently, this equals an amount of € 100 per day.

In practical terms, these requirements may not be routinely checked at the border control when you arrive in Mallorca.
