What is the situation in Spain?
On October 25 the Spanish government approved a new national state of alarm for the country, aimed at giving Spain’s regional governments the legal framework they need to limit mobility in a bid to combat the second wave of the coronavirus. This new decree grants regional governments the option to prohibit travel in and out of their territories (including towns and municipalities) unless this is for essential reasons such as going to work or to get to the doctor, limiting the number of people in gatherings,  as well as imposing an obligatory nationwide curfew between 11pm and 6am.

Currently, all domestic and international travelers are expected to check with local and municipal authorities in order to comply with regulations and restrictions. In the framework of this Decree, regions are expected to adopt specific measures, limitations and restrictions, in order to better respond to the epidemiological situation.

If you currently live in Sweden and plan to travel to Spain, please also check Swedish Government site for more information in SwedenAbroad.   
 
Are there any sanitary controls upon arrival?
 
According to new regulations, as of July 1st all travelers, nationals and non nationals,  arriving to Spain by plane or boat, will need to present upon arrival a Passenger Location Card that you can fill online at https://www.spth.gob.es/

If you have technical problems filling the form, you can always do it on paper. The PDF form can be downloaded and printed here. Please be advised that the QR code or the PDF form need to be presented upon arrival and is therefor nor a precondition to board the airplane. The airline can and should provide the passengers with paper copies of the form if needed during the flight. You can also fill the form upon arrival.    
 
Can I travel to Spain on Tourism?
 
If you have a holiday home in Spain or if you were planning to visit Spain for tourism you can travel freely, provided your final destination is not in a confined region or municipality. Remember that you can only enter and exit this areas if you have a valid reason and travelling for tourism is not one of them. Having a holiday home or visiting relatives living in Spain is not a valid reason.

Check with local website to make sure you understand and comply with local regulations and restrictions, that can vary substantially from region to region.  
 
What to do if you show Covid19 symptoms
 
If you feel sick before your trip you should avoid travelling and putting others at risk. If you are already on tourism in Spain and you present Covid19 symptoms, you are expected to follow the same care instructions from your healthcare provider and local health department. You should self isolate, avoid public spaces and monitor yourself. If symptoms persist, contact local medical services but avoid going directly to the hospital.

You can check the website of the Spanish Ministry of Health for more information, as well as local regulations for possible restrictions.
