Spain opens borders for tourists

On June 7, Spain opened its borders to foreign tourists from third countries that are not part of the EU.

On June 5, the Spanish Ministry of Health announced that it will now be possible to enter the country with one of three documents: a certificate of vaccination, testing or recovery.

If a tourist comes from a country that is at risk, then a prerequisite is a negative PCR test result. This requirement is relevant even with a certificate of vaccination or recovery.

As of June 7, most third countries, including Ukraine, were at risk.

When entering Spain, the following factors must be considered:

  • Test for coronavirus must be done either by PCR or express for antigen. The test is valid for 48 hours from the delivery of materials for analysis.
  • Last dose vaccines must be received no later than 14 days prior to entry. The country accepts certificates for a vaccine that is approved by the EMA (European Medicines Agency) or the World Health Organization for emergency use.
  • Convalescence certificate valid only if a person has been diagnosed with COVID-19 by PCR. From the moment of receiving a positive result for coronavirus, at least 11 days and no more than 180 days must pass.
  • Documents must be in Spanish, English, German or French languages
  • Children under 6 years old are not required to present tests and other certificates.
  • Before flying to Spain you need to fill in shape Online or in the Spain Travel Health “SpTH” app by entering your details. As a result of filling, you will receive QR code, which must be presented to employees of the airport or airline before boarding the plane.
