As opposed to in T1, La Caixa Foreign Exchange at Barcelona Airport Terminal 2 do not deal with the processing of these refund applications.

They will serve you here and will provide you with the refund if you can provide all of the necessary documentation. You will first need to get a stamp from customs.
