The Spanish government has declared that the country’s current entry criteria for arriving travellers will be extended.
Travelers hoped that Spain would follow the lead of other EU/EEA nations and eliminate its entry restrictions. Despite the fact that the Easter vacations are approaching, the Spanish authorities have yet to determine whether to lift or at least relax some of their requirements.
The Spanish Ministry of Health has announced that all EU/EEA nations would stay on the risk list in its most recent update.
This means that all visitors arriving in Spain from an EU/EEA nation must complete a Health Control Form before entering the country. In addition, upon entering Spain, everyone will be asked to show a valid EU Digitial COVID-19 Pass – a vaccination, recovery, or test certificate.
The Ministry stresses, “If you come from a country at risk in relation to COVID-19, you must present a certificate or document proving vaccination, diagnostic test for active infection or recovery from COVID-19.”
Passengers who can show one of the above-mentioned passes are exempt from additional regulations. Nonetheless, everyone must ensure that the current validity criteria for vaccination and recovery certificates is followed.
Vaccination certificates are accepted provided they show that the bearer completed the vaccination process within the last 270 days or received an additional vaccine dosage, according to the Spanish Ministry of Health. Only adults over the age of 18 are subject to this restriction.
If you are between the ages of 12 and 18 and were vaccinated more than 270 days ago, you are not required to receive another dose.
The Spanish authorities explained: “The requirement to have received a booster dose more than 270 from the date of administration of the last dose of the complete vaccination schedule shall not apply to minors over 12 and under 18 years of age. They shall be considered fully vaccinated even if more than 270 days have elapsed without having had a booster dose.”
Recovery certificates, on the other hand, are only accepted if the document shows that the possessor has recovered from the virus within the last 180 days.
Travelers from the EU and EEA who do not have a valid vaccination or recovery certificate can visit Spain for any reason as long as they have a negative COVID-19 test result. For entrance, Spain accepts both rapid antigen and PCR tests.
Third-country visitors with a valid vaccination or recovery certificate are likewise allowed to enter Spain.
