Changes for entry into Spain from the UK
From 2 July, the Spanish government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK to present on entry one of the following:
- a negative COVID-19 test;
- or proof of vaccination.
Further requirements and entry restrictions may also apply if:
- You have travelled to a ‘risk country’ within 14 days prior to arrival in Spain.
- You are travelling from mainland Spain to the Balearic or Canary Islands.
- You are travelling overland (by road or rail) from France.
All passengers entering Spain are still required to complete a pre-travel declaration form.
Travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others, including any measures that they bring in to control the virus.
Testing and vaccination requirements for arrivals from the UK
From 2 July 2021, the Spanish government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK (excluding children under the age of 12 years old) to present on entry one of the following:
- documentation issued within 48 hours prior to arrival in Spain, certifying that you have undertaken a COVID-19 test, e.g. PCR, TMA, LAMP or NEAR, and tested negative. Antigen tests are not currently accepted.
- proof of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain (date(s) of vaccination must be specified), with a vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency or by the World Health Organisation
If you live in England, Spain will accept the NHS COVID Pass or your NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. If you live in Scotland or Wales, Spain will accept your respective NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status.
