Spain tightens schengen border checks for third world country national

Yesterday only British Passport holders with a Red Gibraltar ID Card were being allowed into Spain through the Gibraltar border.

Hard luck on British passport holders who had booked a holiday or were visiting their second home in Spain using the Gibraltar airport due to it's proximity

The joys of being a third country national eh?

Love the Freudian slip by the way.

Is that really a thing, flying to Gib to cross the border? The flights are more expensive, the car hire is more expensive and you know there's often a problem at the border. By the time you've crossed the border you could have driven from Seville or Malaga.

You'd be surprised by the amount of people who fly into Gib everyday with EasyJet and British Airways then walk into Spain, if you are going west to Tarifa or East to La Duquesa, possibly Estepona its still a lot faster than going to Malaga and flights are cheap enough most of the time to Gib.

Obviously if Spain plays games at the boarder or the weathers really bad that benefit is soon wiped out.

It seems Spain has also started to enforce their (maybe EU) law on 3rd world travelers requiring itineraries and access to cash to gain access. Good for them. Will help keep out the rif raft.

Hopefully this will include "tourists" who are staying with resident family members to have to show a "locator form" available from the mayor @ a pretty hefty cost to the host.

YESTERDAY
A plaque recognising the efforts of workers involved in the transformation of the SS Uganda has been unveiled. The ship was turned into a hospital vessel for use during the Falklands Conflict from an educational cruise in the space of 65 hours, in 1982. On Tuesday day is 40 years to the day that the SS Uganda set sail from Gibraltar to the Falklands. Several plaques marking the conflict are being unveiled in the UK. This one, located at Ragged Staff Gates, specifically recognises the civilian and naval dockyard workers that turned the vessel around in such a short space of time. The event was put together by the Gibraltar Heritage Trust and the UK based Friends of Gibraltar Heritage Society.


Do you remember your adopted country Spain's support for the attack on British Citizens?

Hopefully a fall in the tourist revenue for Spain

The irony is that you are trolling the Spanish sub forum of an expat site to spout your Spanish hatred.
