Spain holidays: Latest FCDO update for Spain as Brexit looms & travel bans remain in place

Tourists, as well as those living in Spain, must follow these rules.

“This requirement applies to all passengers arriving in Spain by air or sea, regardless of your residency status in Spain and the length of time you intend on staying. Property owners in Spain are subject to this requirement,” explained the FCDO.

A certain amount of admin is also required.

The FCDO said. “If you are travelling by air or sea to Spain, you must declare on the mandatory ‘Health Control Form’ … that you have undertaken a PCR, TMA or LAMP test within no more than 72 hours prior to arrival, have tested negative for COVID-19, and can show on request evidence certifying your results.”

“The document you provide must be the original, be written in Spanish or English, may be submitted in paper or electronic format and must contain the following information:

  • name of passenger
  • passport number or ID card number (the number provided must match the one provided on the Health Control Form)
