Barcelona Activa opens a new attention service for international talent

The MediaTIC building opens a welcome office to facilitate the arrival of people from other countries who want to work, study, invest or live in the city

Barcelona, 24 Nov 2021

The Barcelona International Welcome Desk is already a reality. Barcelona Activa has just put into operation a new information point to enable the reception of foreign people who come to Barcelona to live, work, undertake or invest. The welcome office for international talent will be located in the MediaTIC building in the 22@ innovation district and counts on the participation of Barcelona City Council.

The aim of the new municipal service is to focus on facilitating and establishing the arrival of  international talent to the city. Information, support and advice will be given, but it also allows access to services and help in carrying out administrative procedures. A Welcome Pack is also provided, which includes a set of useful guides and publications for people who have just landed in the city.

The attention point is aimed at very varied profiles: people who work in relevant economic sectors in the city, research staff linked to universities, business entities or R&D&I centres, people who move to Barcelona to carry out some investment, and entrepreneurs or students.

The service offers face-to-face attention onsite in the MediaTIC building (Carrer Roc Boronat, 117) or online and appointments can be made on the website. If you want to have more information about this service, click here
