As a local event expert in Spain, Cititravel DMC would like to maintain you updated about the current procedures indicated by the Spain Travel Health portal. The Government of Spain has put in place a series of procedures to control the public’s health and the control of tourists arriving in Spain.
Spain Travel requirements
As from the 7th of June 2021, the following requirements apply to travelers who come to Spain: tourists will need to present certain documents along with the possible necessary carried out tests (depending if you belong to a country/risk area*).
*To see if your country belongs to a risk group, please see the website of www.mscbs.gob.es
CERTIFICATE & TESTS
From 7 June 2021, all those passengers from a country/area that has a SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus risk, must present, a certificate or document certifying vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative certificate of a Diagnostic Test of Active Infection or a certificate of Recovery after having passed this disease in order to enter Spain. This can be a EU Digital COVID Certificate, or a supporting document of those indicated above, whether the traveller arrives from an EU member state or from a third country. Children under 12 years of age are not required to present these certificates or supporting documents.
The EU Digital COVID Certificate issued by a member state of the European Union may contain one or more of the following supporting documents of a person:
has been vaccinated against COVID-19, with full vaccination schedule, at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain.
has had a diagnostic test, within 48 hours prior to arrival in Spain (NAAT (nucleic acid amplification test, e.g. RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA) / RAT (rapid antigen test)), with negative result.
has recovered from COVID-19, after the disease has passed, provided that more than 11 days have elapsed since the first positive NAAT test was performed, and shall be valid for up to 180 days thereafter.
NON-EU CERTIFICATE, THIRD COUNTRIES: it is any of the supporting documents listed above, but issued by non-EU countries, in a format readable by airport health control staff.
In any case, Cititravel recommends you to always carefully check and revise the latest updates as stated on the website of the Spanish Ministry of Health.
HEALTH FORM (QR code)
Apart from the above mentioned requirements, all those who enter Spain from other countries, regardless of their nationality, age or any other consideration, must complete a Health Control Form (with QR code) before traveling, to take with you during boarding procedures and while going through health controls on arrival in Spain. The form can be found on https://www.spth.gob.es/ or you can simply download the app from the same website on your mobile device. We also recommend you to always check with your flight company what the exact rules and measures are, as these might change over time.
As of the 26th of June 2021, wearing a face mask in outdoor public spaces is no longer a requirement in Spain, so confirmed the Spanish Prime Minister. Of course this only applies to outside areas where a distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained. It will still be mandatory to carry a face mask at times where social distancing cannot be maintained (on public transportation and in open-air situations such as on crowded streets or large events), as well as all indoor areas.
