Ibiza — Visas and Vaccinations
Most nationalities, including Americans, may visit Ibiza for up to 90 days without a visa, although a return or onward ticket and valid passport with at least six months of validity is required. It is recommended to check the Embassy of Spain in America website for up-to-date visa information.
Health and Safety
Ibiza is a world-renowned holiday destination that is generally safe for travelers, although there have been incidents of pick-pocketing and purse-snatching, particularly in crowded tourist areas. There is an ongoing worldwide risk of terrorism, and foreigners have been targeted in Spain in recent years. Visitors should be alert to scams, and party in moderation.
There are no compulsory vaccinations necessary before a trip to Ibiza, although precautionary immunizations against hepatitis A and B, typhoid and tetanus shots are often recommended. Visitors should always wear sunscreen and drink lots of water, particularly in the summer. Driving can be hazardous, especially in peak season when the population literally doubles.
