I'm living in Canada holding my PR card. I have plan to go Switzerland.
I got my Swiss visa multiple entry. But I booked my flight Toronto to Spain then 4 hours stay in Spain, Barcelona. Then Spain to Switzerland.
Do I have to get a transit visa for Spain?


No. Spain and Switzerland are both in the Schengen area. Your Swiss visa permits you to enter the Schengen area, anywhere. You will do that in Spain.

  • when I applied for visa they were asked me what is the first entry and I gave Swiss as answer Is that ok too ? Also other thing to mention that I have Sri Lankan Passport and living in Canada PR card holder – Motor Wars Nov 25 '19 at 0:04

    It is perfectly normal for an itinerary to be changed a bit, depending on e.g. flight availability. As long as the justification for the trip remains valid and Switzerland still is your main destination you should be fine. – Arne Nov 26 '19 at 8:27
  • @MotorWars Arne is correct. Changing your itinerary slightly (for example because you found a more favorable itinerary with a different airline) should not cause any problems. – phoog Nov 26 '19 at 20:06
