Obtaining a Carnet Jove and validity
How to get a Carnet Jove?
You can request your card on the Carnet Jove website. You will then need to go collect it in the La Caixa branch that you have specified. You can also go through the whole process in any La Caixa branch.
The Carnet Jove can be requested at any time if you meet two conditions: you are aged between 12 and 30 (inclusive) and you can pay €7.90.
Validity of the Carnet Jove
The length of validity of the Carnet Jove depends on when you request it:
- If you request it between January and September, it is valid until the 31st of December of the same year.

In either case the Carnet Jove ceases to be valid when you turn 31.
