  • 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 for the majority of travellers (see information on limited exceptions below).

In compliance with the provisions of Royal Decree-Law 8/2021, of 4 May, all passengers originating from any airport or port located outside Spanish territory must complete this form. Including international passengers connecting at a Spanish airport with a final destination in another country.

What do I need to complete the electronic health control form?

To fill out the Public Health Form:,

  1. you need to have on hand: Identity document number (passport, National Id card (DNI), etc.)
  2. Information about your trip (arrival date, flight number/ship name, company, seat/cabin number etc.)

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.

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.
