UPDATED ENTRY REQUIREMENTS TO SPAIN FOR UK TRAVELLERS (21 MAY 2022)
Please find the updated entry requirements for non-EU travellers to Spain (including UK travellers) below (updated 21 May 2022)
UK travellers, aged 12 and above, arriving into Spain by air or sea, will need to fulfil one of the following criteria:
1.- Certificate of vaccination: Proof of being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine) at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain. If more than 270 days have passed since the final dose, certification of a booster vaccination is also required, except for teenagers aged 12 to 17 (inclusive).
2.- Certificate of recovery: Proof that the passenger has recovered from COVID. Recovery certificates issued by the official authorities will be valid at least 11 days after the first NAAT diagnostic test or positive antigen screening test, carried out by qualified personnel. The certificate shall be valid for 180 days after the date of the first positive diagnostic test result.
3.- Negative diagnostic test certificate: Proof of a negative NAAT (PCR or similar) test carried out in the 72 hours prior to departure, or an antigen test carried out in the 24 hours prior to departure.
Children under 12 years old are exempt when travelling with an adult.
From 6 April, children under 12 and those travelling to Spain with an EU COVID passport or equivalent (including NHS COVID travel pass) no longer need to complete the Health Control Form (FCS in Spanish) prior to arrival. Those without an EU COVID pass or equivalent must complete the Health Control Form to show evidence of their vaccinations or certificate of recovery. This can be completed via Spain Travel Health (SpTH).
