Spanish police arrested 14 of the gang in Malaga and 44 Iranian nationals with forged passports were stopped at airports across Europe.
Another 42 people accused of selling their Spanish identity documents for between £445 and £2,680 were also seized.
Searches of safe houses in Spain found seven Iranians, including a five-year-old child, as well as computers printers, more than 400 blank ID cards, firearms and 40 authentic Iranian and Spanish passports.
The gang operated in Malaga, in southern Spain and charged each migrant £22,380 for forged Spanish passports, travel documents, transfers and accommodation at their intended destination.
Europol said the group was “perfectly structured”, with each member having a defined role.
