Travel to Majorca - what do we need to show re covid?

Hi all, we are going to Majorca in a few weeks - first travel since start of pandemic. Both DH and I are fully vaccinated and gave covid passports. DS1,16 and DS2, 14 have both had one jab. Do we need to get them double jabbed and get done proof of this before we travel? Do we still need to do PCR tests before travelling etc? Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks 😊

www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/spain/entry-requirements#children-and-young-people

you can look it up here, probably safer than taking the word of some internet stranger.

The DSs will need either a second vaccine, a negative test or a covid recovery certificate

Fully vaccinated - don't need to have covid test iirr
Your children, as they are over 12, need to be fully vaccinated (with 2 weeks after last jab) or have a negative PCR.

From what I remember anyway

Some of the travel companies, like Jet2, TUI and BA have webpages which puts all the relevant info into simplified drop down boxes for each option.

Just went to Mallorca this weekend. Fully vaccinated so just showed my covid pass showing booster.

if you don’t have a covid pass then there is a health control form to complete which would presumably require a pcr test or recent infection

tjere was a testing station in arrivals - I just walked through and showed my pass

fca website is best. We didn’t need to do any testing on way there or back - it was incredibly simple Given we were vaccinated

Stupid MN deleting posts. I have same problem as OP

We went to walk-in clinic to get DS's 2nd jab & my booster -- you may need booster too, OP. The 2nd jab expires after 9months, anyway (Spanish entry rules)

age 12+ can put NHS covid app on their phone
on that is a way to get pdf letter
I will print it & bring to airport for each of us

There is Spanish locator form you must fill in, too

that may be all. Or may not.

You only have to complete the health / locator form if you are not fully vaccinated and you no longer need to complete one for return to UK. You will need to show proof of vaccination.

There is an extra step in going through Spanish airports as they stamp passport for all British passports . Palma seems confusing on arrival as they have got all UK flights in one terminal and arrivals have to walk through the departure lounge before border controls. On way home it's easier as there is a separate shopping / eating area after you have done all the security / passport checks .

When you travel allow extra time at your UK airport as some have long queues through security .

@soupdragon321 there may be further changes to the rules on 15th May as implied here:

www.thelocal.es/20220430/travel-spain-extends-ban-on-unvaccinated-non-eu-tourists-until-may-15th/

So I certainly wouldn’t advise getting vaccinated purely for that trip unless the most up to date rules before you go require it! ( Do you realise that Spain is increasingly becoming an outlier with it’s continuing strict rules and you can go to 25 countries other restriction free?)
