Located along the northeast coast of Spain, Barcelona combines ancient history with modern splendor.  The Romans settled here 2000 years ago and laid the  foundations of a cosmopolitan, coastal metropolis.  Today Barcelona's natural beauty is complemented by the modernist architecture of Antoni Gaudi including the famous Sagrada Familia and Park Guell.  This economic hub of Spain enchants visitors with its unique art, sports, Mediterranean cuisine, local festivals, and beaches.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department’s passport page for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.
