The Spanish authorities have announced that the current entry rules that the country applies to incoming travellers will get extended.
Travellers were hoping that Spain would follow the example of the other EU/EEA countries and drop its entry rules. However, despite the Easter holidays being just around the corner, the Spanish authorities have not yet decided to lift or at least facilitate some of their rules, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
Through its most recent update, the Spanish Ministry of Health has revealed that all EU/EEA countries will continue to remain part of the risk list.
This means that all travellers who reach Spain from an EU/EEA country need to fill out a Health Control Form prior to their arrival. In addition, everyone will continue to be required to present a valid EU Digitial COVID-19 Pass – a vaccination, recovery, or test certificate – when entering Spain.
“If you come from a country at risk in relation to COVID-19, you must present a certificate or document proving vaccination, diagnostic test for active infection or recovery from COVID-19,” the Ministry emphasises.
Travellers who are able to present one of the passes mentioned above are exempt from additional rules. Nonetheless, everyone must still make sure to meet the validity rule that currently applies to vaccination and recovery certificates.
The Spanish Ministry of Health explains that vaccination certificates are accepted if they prove that the holder has completed the vaccination process within the last 270 days or received an additional vaccine dose. Such a rule applies only to persons over the age of 18.
Those between the age of 12 and 18 are not required to receive an additional dose if they were vaccinated more than 270 days ago.
