How do they work?
Since this event started in 2020 (You know Who-XIX) the Spain travel bans have changed all over the world. I’ve taken the time to summarize the Spain travel restrictions here for you and it is my main task these days (together with watching Wanda Vision and the Mandalorian Documentary) to update the measures every time they change, so you can be aware of the travel situation here.
Spain has a website pretty complete that has an interactive map where you can click on the EU country you’re willing to know about and it has detailed information about it. I´ve been playing to check if it works and trust me it does.
Also, this website is in 24 languages, I assume you speak at least English…otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading my nonsense hahaha.
I´ll leave the link here below so you can click and check out the measures:
To enter Spain there are some unbreakable rules that must be followed. We will talk about them right now:
General and Mandatory Measures to enter Spain:
- There is a form you need to fill and carry it with you to show at the airport or use the app for Android or ios. Here it is the link to access to it:
- Every visitor without any exception must bring a NEGATIVE test whether is a PCR or a TMA for SARS-CoV-2 performed at least within 72 hours before the flight to Spain. This certificate must be original and it has to be translated into any of these languages: Spanish, English, German, or French. There are other alternatives to the tests and the translation, better visit the official website to know more about the particular cases.
- There is no quarantine restriction (just don´t kiss anyone right away, just in case, you never know, love is in the air)
- The use of Masks is MANDATORY.
Everything I’ve written before are the general measures, there are also some restrictions depending on your departure country:
NEW: Following the Orden SND/181/2021, starting from March, 8th, the people coming from Brazil, South Africa, Botswana, Union of Comoros, Ghana, Kenia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Peru, and Colombia, should remain in mandatory quarantine during the first 10 days from the arrival date or the complete stay if this one was shorter than 10 days. This quarantine can be over before if the 7th day the person shows a PCR with a negative result.
There is a list of countries that are considered “risks areas”, check this to see if yours is here:
For more info about this above, please check this website:
Starting from 00.00 hrs of June the 21st the bans to flights from EU and the Schengen Space are over.
Starting from July the 1st, the EU governments will open the borders gradually to third countries flights.
This is everything you need to know about entering Spain with the You Know Who XIX wandering around.
If you have any more doubts I´ll leave here the link to the FAQs that I think are pretty well answered and non complicated to follow up:
Since this is something that everyone is worried about I´ll write a blog on Madrid and Barcelona´s Airports and another one with the restrictions in Barcelona City.
Thanks for reading all of this Spain travel bans!
See you in my next post!
