- NEWS: Updated Feb 3rd:What are the rules for entry? Travelers with an EU Digital Green Certificate can travel to Spain from an at-risk EU/EEA country 14 days after completing their full vaccination course. Spain accepts all vaccines authorized by the EMA and the WHO. Those include BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, as well as China’s Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines.
Travelers who have recovered from COVID can present an EU Digital Green Certificate with a certificate of recovery, which is considered to be valid 11 days after the traveler’s first positive test, and up to six months after that date.
Travelers who aren’t fully vaccinated must present a negative PCR test performed up to 72 hours before their flight, or an antigen test performed within 48 hours prior to their arrival in Spain. People arriving from EU/EEA and third countries not on a list of at-risk countries can enter Spain without showing any proof of vaccination or testing.
What paperwork is required? All travelers arriving by air or sea are required to fill out passenger locator forms and will have their temperature taken upon arrival. Spikes in coronavirus infections have led to additional restrictions being imposed at a regional level.
- Can I visit from outside the EU? Travelers must present a vaccination certificate, which is considered valid 14 days after the completion of their full vaccination course. The certificates must be in Spanish, English, French, or German, or otherwise translated into Spanish by an official body. Travelers coming from a high-risk country must present a negative COVID test regardless of their vaccination status.
What can I do when I get there? COVID-related restrictions are being decided at the regional levelin Spain, which means rules differ between territories. The regions of Aragón, the Balearic Islands, the Basque Country, Catalonia, Galicia, Murcia, Navarre and Valencia require EU Digital Green Certificates (or their equivalents) to access bars, restaurants, cultural venues and hotels. Several regions, among them Madrid, have rejected requiring the passes; others are still analyzing the issue. At a nationwide level, masks must be worn in closed spaces, on all public transport, and at outdoor events where safe distance cannot be maintained.
