Spain eases travel restrictions: Everything you need to know

Spain eases travel restrictions: Everything you need to know

Spain has lifted entry requirements for anyone arriving from the EU or the Schengen area.

Visitors from outside the EU, however, still have to show proof of vaccination, recovery certificate or a negative test.

A PCR or rapid antigen test is accepted - taken 72 or 48 hours before arrival, respectively.

In order to be considered fully vaccinated by the Spanish government, you must have taken the second dose at least 14 days before the trip.

You must be vaccinated with vaccines approved by the WHO or EMA.

And, in line with other EU countries, Spain has set a 270-day expiration date for vaccine passports. This means that booster doses will be required if you were vaccinated more than nine months ago.

Are masks required in Spain?

After 700 days, Spain finally abolished the rule of wearing masks. By royal decree, masks are no longer mandatory in the vast majority of countries - from bars and cafes to museums and cinemas.
