Do I require a visa to enter Spain?
Please read the information here
to understand whether you need a Visa to enter Spain.
If you do not require a visa, you should not apply for visa support as the GSMA will not issue supporting information for nationalities that do not require a visa.
When can I apply for my visa?
For MWC21, we are providing all attendees with an Attendance Confirmation to assist with business travel into Spain. Information will be collected during the registration process of the country you will be travelling from. If in addition to this travel documentation you also require a letter to support your visa application, you will be given the opportunity to select that at the same time. There is some additional information that you are required to submit for your visa application.
Because GSMA Ltd. is a U.S. incorporated company, it is obliged to comply with trade sanctions that are imposed by the U.S. government. Those trade sanctions prohibit GSMA Ltd. from issuing visa support letters to delegates from sanctioned countries. Please note that regardless of your registration, you will not be allowed access to MWC if you (individually) or the company you represent is subject to U.S. sanctions. If you are unsure whether U.S. sanctions apply to you or your organization, please contact us at [email protected]
How do I request a visa support letter?
Your Attendance Confirmation letter will be sent to your main email account as a PDF attachment after your registration is fully completed and any outstanding payment is settled. You can also access a copy via your registration account by clicking on Inbox from your home page. If you have selected for visa support, this information will be contained within the same letter.
The GSMA has adapted its registration process, to accommodate a new travel authorization, which allows all MWC21 Barcelona registrants - including exhibitors, attendees, sponsors, and partners - to enter Spain to attend our in-person event. Please click here
