Yes, as long as the media is compatable with the device you are using.  If it is the same device, then absolutly.

Yes, it will still work.  You will need to catalog the tape before you can restore from it though.

Are all the previouse tapes sent to spain blank as well?  Did all the backup jobs complete successfully?  So they get no inventory or catalog off the tape?

This might be a little obvious - but is the LTO drive in Spain the same generation (or later) as the one that backed up the data? You wouldn't expect an LTO 1 or 2 drive to read an LTO 3 tape, for example.
