Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long are you travelling for?


We are travelling for one week

Ben Jones :

OK that should be no problem. Gran Canaria is part of Spain so the same travel requirements as there would apply. You can check on the Government's advice site that it states: "Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required."

However, in addition you need to check the specific requirements of your airline because even if the country's entry requirements cover you, there may be more restrictive conditions of carriage imposed by your airline and this is a contractual requirement, not a legal one, so make you check their terms and conditions for travel


That's great Ben, thank you very much. Richard
