Travel and COVID-19

Travellers to Spain will require negative PCR, TMA or RT Lamp test

The Spanish Health Ministry has changed requirements for compulsory testing for arrivals by sea and air and from December 10th will accept a negative TMA test as well as a PCR.

All passengers who come from a high-risk country in relation to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, in order to enter Spain, MUST show a certificate with a NEGATIVE PCR result (RT-PCR of COVID-19),tests must be PCR or TMA and must be physically carried out no more than 72 hours before arrival at your destination’s seaport or airport


This certificate or supporting document must be the original, will be written in Spanish and / or English and may be presented in paper or electronic format. The document will contain, at least, the following information: traveler's name, passport or ID number, date of the test, identification and contact details of the centre that performs the analysis, technique used and negative test result.

The personal identification number (passport / DNI) that you used to get your QR must be the same as the one that appears on the negative PCR certificate.

The airlines or shipping companies will check that the QR code is obtained from the health control documents without, under any circumstances, accessing the information contained in them.

Upon arrival in Spain, you may be subjected to a health check at the airport and after the evaluation carried out by the health authority (including the documents control) you may be required to undergo a diagnostic test for COVID-19. 

We inform you that your personal data will be used in order to guarantee control of the COVID-19 epidemic and your healthcare.
