Covid travel rules for Spain

21 replies

The rules seem to be constantly changing, I'm confused.

From what I understand, you can enter Spain if fully vaxxed (ie 3 jabs or 2 jabs within 270 days). You need a passenger locator form but NO tests are required.

Have I got this right?

I’m going with my 19 year old dd who hasn’t got round to having her booster yet. She had her second jab on 2nd September so I think that’s ok as it’s within 270 days.

I can’t seem to find my covid pass now, it’s on the NHS app right?

Oh you'll be fine there... it's Valencia that is super super strict wherever you go and curfews and rules change daily etc... i think andalucia also.

Have a great time!

Yes, I’m currently in the Canaries- no tests needed. Do make sure your documents are in order as they were checked just after passport control.
Masks in shops, bars etc but not needed outside if you can social distance.

@adriftabroad

Errrm I live in the Valencian province and we have no restrictions especially not a curfewConfused. The only rule we have is masks inside, such as restaurants but you take them off as soon as you sit down

Rules are meant to be lifted slightly on the 28th Feb but that has been put back twice already.

You do have to fill out a Spanish travel form and get a QR code to enter however. They checked them after passport control at a separate booth when we went to the Canaries last week.

I have just checked (as I said, they change their minds very often on the rules when out and about, once you have entered the country)

El Pais reported on Monday that on Tuesday 22nd from midnight, lots of restrictions to be lifted (restrictions in bars, restaurants, face coverings out doors, limits on numbers, need to produce passport to go Burger King (DD)! Cinema, etc)

I am quite excited but I haven't been out since Wednesday and DD said all rules still in place when she went to school yesterday, everyone is still walking along outside with masks on. It may just be taking time to filter down.

I really hope it's true.


Anyway, the point of the thread is OP has a good holidaỳ Smile

@adriftabroad

Puig has eliminated pretty much all restrictions....Masks still inside, but 10 or more can now dine together, tables no longer 1.5m apart in restaurants and bars and Covid passports aren't required any longer . Yes my son still has to wear a mask in school as well but that does faze him at all . Fingers crossed we keep going in this direction . Smile

Yes, I'm so grateful you made me check @bert3400, I have been holding out for the 28th. But it says he did change the rules this week. I am so happy, particularly for DD as she hasn't got her passport yet and couldn't go to a ciema trip last weekend, or even Burger King.

I am frankly over the moon! We are the last province to do it.

(I really don't care about masks either and DD actually likes them)

Bon Dia!!! Grin and thanks again for the heads up, it will be really useful for anyone coming to the costas or Valencia area in coming weeks.

You need to complete a Spanish Travel Health Pass that they will check at your departure airport in the UK, and again on arrival in Spain.

It's easy to do, and will include your flight number, your self-declared vaccination status etc. You get a QR code that you save into your phone's wallet. You also need proof of vaccinations from the NHS app (not the NHS Covid app) - I think it is called a Covid Travel pass.

On the way back, you need to do a UK passenger locator form, which is fairly similar, but you put in your health details, vaccination status and that's all you need to show after your passport and boarding pass.

These forms can be a bit daunting but you soon forget about that once you have downloaded the QR codes.

Download everything to Wallet or Notes, or something similar, so that you don't have to worry about having an internet connection.

Spain is still mandatory masks, even on the street if it is busy, so make sure you take a pack with you.
