entry to or entry into?

Postby InAh » Wed Oct 05, 2011 6:08 pm

Hi everyone! I have some doubts about the right preposition in the following sentence:
"She was refused entry to Spain". Should it be "She was refused entry into Spain?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

Both are possible but "to" is probably more normal. The word "into" really makes it sound as though she is at the border, trying desperately to get in.
