ENTRY CONDITIONS TO SPAIN FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THIRD COUNTRIES

8 de mayo de 2022

All passengers arriving to Spain by air (except children under 12 years of age and those in international transit), regardless of the country of origin, including Spaniards returning to their home, must have one of these documents:

> DIGITAL COVID CERTIFICATE OR EU EQUIVALENT  vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative certificate of an active infection diagnostic test or a certificate of recovery after passing the disease. You can check if your certificate is valid on the website Will open in a new window  https://spth.gob.es or in the Spain Travel Health app -SpTH- (Android, iOS, Huawei).

> QR SPTH . If you do not have the EU Digital COVID Certificate or EU equivalent, you must fill in the SPTH Health Control Form manually entering the data of your vaccination, recovery or diagnostic test certificate through the website https://spth.gob.es Will open in a new window or the Spain Travel Health application -SpTH- (Android, iOS, Huawei). The system will send you a QR code that you will have to present both prior boarding, and upon your arrival in Spain. In the health control, you may be required to present this document certifying vaccination, diagnostic test or recovery.

Any of these three certificates (vaccination, recovery, diagnostic test) may be used by travellers to enter Spain without the need to complete a health control form, provided that it meets the following criteria:

1.- COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate. From 1 February 2022, this will be valid from 14 days after the date of administration of the last dose of the complete vaccination schedule and will be valid up to 270 days from the date of administration of that last dose. The vaccination certificate with a complete schedule for people under 18 years of age does not have an expiration date. Thereafter, in order to be valid, the vaccination certificate must reflect the administration of a booster dose. These certificates will be considered valid since the day the booster dose was administered.

Any vaccine authorised by the European Union (European Medicines Agency, EMA)   and WHO   will be accepted. Certificates with vaccines not authorised by these agencies are also acceptable, but the last dose administered must be of one of the authorised vaccines. Complete vaccination schedules are defined as those established in the COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy in Spain. 

2.- Certificate of a diagnostic test for SARSCoV2 with negative result. The following diagnostic tests shall be admissible:

o NAAT- nucleic acid amplification tests (e.g.: RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA, HAD, NEAR, CRISPR, SDA), with sampling within the previous 72 hours to departure to Spain.

o RAT-rapid antigen test, with sampling within the previous 24 hours to departure to Spain. 

3.- A COVID-19 Recovery certificate: Recovery certificates issued at least 11 days after the first positive NAAT or RAT, and up to a maximum of 180 days after the date of sampling, are accepted as valid. Passengers with a Recovery Certificate other than an EU Digital COVID Certificate or equivalent must also provide documentary proof of the diagnostic test from which the Recovery Certificate is derived.
