So, are you a Cuban citizen now? Or US citizen? Which passport do you travel on? Presumably, US?

Without knowing this no-one can really answer your question. And I doubt even specialists come across this combination very often.

It may be worth getting in touch with the Consulate.

There are Immigration police on the ferries, but I don;t know if they issue visas, as I didn;t need one.

i use my cuban passport and my resident card along with the affixed Schengen visa to travel to spain. I know what you mean, ive called the consulate numerous times and i never get a straight answer, they tell me i need hotel reservations at Morrocco but im only going on a day trip.. they keep giving me conflicting information. I would hate to go all the way to Malaga for a week and notbe able to cross on a day trip to tangier based on technicalities..

You would need to be in possession of a valid Schengen visa, issued by your local Spanish embassy or consulate, to enter Spain.

All I can tell you is that it is difficult to get a Schengen visa for Spain here, even for locals, and you have to have all your paperwork in order, and even then it takes time. I would NOT advise you to try to get your visa here. You must apply to the Spanish embassy or consulate where you live, either in Sri Lanka or Saudi Arabia.

I'm sorry macmef, but I cannot give you my telephone number. I am not an information service on how to obtain visas for Spain. The Spanish consulate will tell you all the information you need to know about that. However, if you have any particular questions about Tangier you can post them on this forum and we will try to respond to them if we can.
