Travel

All BigSurv18 attendees are responsible to make their own travel arrangements and obtain necessary travel documents (e.g., visas). For questions please email info@bigsurv18.org.

Barcelona is a fabulous city with a rich history and wonderful attractions. But like many cities of its size, petty crime is a concern, particularly in popular tourist areas. Please be cautious when traveling and check with your local embassy for any safety alerts or travel warnings.

If you have questions regarding vaccinations, currency and exchange, or driver’s license, please refer to the nearest Spanish Consulate.
