Before travelling to Spain all passengers, regardless of vaccination status, are required to fill out an online health control form.
On arrival into Spanish ports and airports, you must show the QR code (hardcopy or digital) issued when you completed the online Health Control Form before travel.
Only people who are fully vaccinated are permitted to enter Spain for the purposes of tourism.
The FCDO states: “You must show valid proof of being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine) at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain.”
From February 1, new rules have been set out to determine what classifies as “fully vaccinated”.
The FCDO explains: “At least 14 days must have passed since being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) before arrival in Spain.
“Your dates of vaccination must be specified and your final dose must have been administered within 270 days prior to travel to Spain.
“If you completed your vaccination (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) more than 270 days prior to travel to Spain, you must be able to show proof of having received a booster jab.”
Spain will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies.
You may also be subject to additional checks at the point of entry including a temperature check, visual health assessment, or testing on arrival.
The FCDO adds: “Passengers may also be contacted and required to undertake a PCR, TMA or LAMP test at any point up to 48 hours after their arrival in Spain.”
Unvaccinated travellers are only permitted to enter Spain if they have an “essential” reason as set out by the Spanish government.
