Non-European Crew – new immigration procedures in the port of Barcelona

One Step Forward for Non-European passports in Barcelona.

Evolution announces a major change in immigration procedures for crew arriving to Barcelona on a non-European passport.  The port police can now stamp crew “out” in their passports once safely embarked on the vessel.  This is a change we have been waiting for a long time and aligns the procedure with many other European ports.

This means that crew arriving on Schengen visas or those only entitled to stay in the Schengen zone for 90 days stays can now stop the days running once onboard the vessel in the port of Barcelona.
