- Entry into force of the Resolution of 1 April 2022 regarding the health controls at the borders of Spain. Main implications:
- Certificate required by all travellers arriving in Spain: currently all persons arriving in Spain need to have the following certificate:
a) Vaccination certificate: confirming that the titleholder has received the full and valid vaccination course against COVID-19. It will only be deemed valid 14 days after the administration of the final dose of the complete vaccination course, as long as no more than 270 days have passed since the administration of the last dose of the course. Thereafter, the certificate should reflect the administration of a booster dose, with the exception of the vaccination certificate of persons under the age of 18 years, which will continue being valid.
b) Diagnostic test certificate: confirming that the titleholder has a negative diagnostic test. In the case of a PCR, the sample must have been taken within the 72 hours before departure. In the case of an antigen test included in the common list of rapid COVID-19 antigen tests, the sample must have been taken within the 24 hours before departure. It will only be valid if issued at least 11 days after receiving a previous NAAT diagnostic test or an antigen test that was positive and conducted by health professionals or qualified persons. It will be valid for 180 days after the date of the first positive result on the diagnostic test.
c) Recovery certificate: confirming that, following a positive diagnostic test result, the titleholder recovered from an infection due to SAR-CoV-2.
- Completion of the Spain Travel Health form (change from 6th April 2022): this will no longer be mandatory for persons who provide a Digital COVID Certificate of the European Union or a valid equivalent.
- The contents of Order INT/657/2020 are extended until 24:00 of 30th of April 2022
FINAL NOTE: Consultation of possible additional requirements from airlines and/or transit or first entry countries into the Schengen space is recommended.
