Types of control on arrival according to means of travel

If you travel by air:
1. If you are travelling to Spain from an EU or Schengen Area country (find the full list of these countries on this Ministry of Health website) you will not be required to present a SpTH health control form or a COVID-19 vaccination certificate.

2. If you come from a country that does not belong to the European Union or is not considered a Schengen associated country (except for children under 12 years of age and travellers in international transit), you must have one of the following certificates:

a) Vaccination certificate: confirming that you have received a valid vaccination course against COVID-19.

b) Diagnostic test certificate: to confirm that you have had a negative diagnostic test.

c) Recovery certificate: confirming that, after a positive diagnostic test result, you have recovered from a SARS-CoV-2 infection.

 

If you have an EU Digital COVID Certificate, or equivalent, no additional documents will be requested.

If you travel by sea:

1. If you are travelling to Spain from an EU or Schengen Area country (find the full list of these countries on this Ministry of Health website) you will not be required to present a SpTH health control form or a COVID-19 vaccination certificate.

2. If you are travelling from a non-EU/Schengen country, people over the age of 12 must be in possession of one of the required health certificates (vaccination, recovery or COVID test), whether it is an equivalent EU Digital COVID Certificate or another type, without the need to complete a health control form.

 

If you travel by land:
1. There is no requirement to submit a health control form.

2. Travellers entering Spain by land from France are no longer required to provide any type of health certificate (vaccination, diagnostic test or recovery).

3. Certain border points of Ceuta and Melilla are open for travel between the Kingdom of Morocco and Spain. In the early stages, only European Union citizens and those with a permit to move across the Schengen Area and legally authorised cross-border workers are allowed to cross the border. Both categories must present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate or a negative diagnosis certificate, which the Ministry of Health recognises therefor. No additional documents will be requested of people with an EU Digital COVID Certificate, or equivalent.
