The Spanish government has extended its COVID-19 entry requirements.

Key Points:

  • Until at least June 15, travelers from outside the Schengen Area must provide one of the following to enter the country:
    • An EU Digital COVID certificate or an EU-approved certificate proving the individual is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The vaccination certificate is valid from 14 to 270 days from the date the last applicable dose was administered.
    • A recovery certificate issued between 11 and 180 days after the first positive PCR or antigen test.
  • Children aged between 12 and under 18, if not vaccinated, must have proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure.
  • Spanish citizens and permanent residents can enter the country without having proof of COVID-19 vaccination or recovery if they have:
    • Proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure or an antigen test taken within 24 hours before departure to Spain.

Additional Information: Travelers who do not hold a valid EU Digital COVID certificate or EU equivalent must complete the SpTH Health Check Form, including proof of vaccination, previous recovery  or negative COVID testing. Travelers under the age of 12 are exempt from the aforementioned requirements. More information regarding Spain’s COVID-19 entry requirements is available here.
