How to enter Spain from Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar - Travelling in times of covid-19

September 21, 2022
​As per Orden INT/452/2022, since 21st May 2022 all foreigners are allowed to enter Spain, no matter the purpose of their trip nor the departure point. Nevertheless, all travelers must present one of the three following certificates, alternatively:

1.- Covid-19 vaccination certificate, meeting the following requirements:
To have had the last recommended dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before entering Spain.
The last dose of the vaccine (second dose ) must have been taken in the last 270 days for the vaccination certificate to be valid to enter Spain. The certificate  does not expire after 270 days as long as its holder remains under 18 years old. If you have the two doses + booster shot, you can enter Spain on your vaccination certificate without any time limit.
Only vaccines authorized by WHO or by the European Medicines Agency (Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca, Janssen, Sinopharma and Sinovac) are accepted. Astra Zeneca shots produced in Thailand by Siam Bioscience are also valid. The vaccination mix that Thai authorities use should allow travelers to enter Spain, especially if they have received a 2nd dose of an EMA approved vaccine (Pfizer o Moderna) 4 weeks after the first dose of another accepted  vaccine.
The vaccination certificate is only  accepted in Spanish, English, French or German. In case you cannot obtain the vaccination certificate in any of those languages, you can travel with a Spanish translation issued by an official/public institution. For further queries on this matter kindly contact
The vaccination certificate must include the name and surname of the holder, date of vaccination and doses, type of vaccine and number of doses administered, issuing country and identification of the issuing body of the vaccination certificate.
Even if there have not been any problems so far for travelers entering Spain with the Thai vaccination certificate issued in English by the hospital or vaccination center, the Embassy recommends travelers to obtain the Thai international covid-19 vaccination certificates through or MorProm app. Thai international covid-19 vaccination certificate has been formally recognized by the European Union. That means that holders of such certificate can use them in the EU under the same conditions as an European Covid Digital Certificate.

2.- Negative covid-19 certificate, which can be of two types:

Negative PCR test performed 72 hours before arrival in Spain. Check this link for a list of centers​ where you can take a PCR test in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
Laboratory antigen test performed 24 hours before arrival in Spain. Due to the difficulty of obtaining these tests in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar (they are laboratory antigens, not rapid self-diagnosis tests -ATK) and the duration of the transits, this Embassy recommends opting for PCR instead.

3.- Recovery certificate, confirming that the holder has recovered from a covid infection, at least 11 days after first testing positive in a diagnostic test. Such certificate is valid only for 180 days since first testing positive for covid in a diagnostic test.

Please remember that for entering Spain you only need to show one of the three certificates, not all three of them. 

Children under 12 years old can travel without any of the three certificates.

From 20th September 2022 no traveler is required to fill in the Health Control Form (SpTH) to enter Spain any more.
