Access control measures at entry points of the country

All travellers coming from outside Spain, by air or sea transport, must fill in an electronic public health form before starting their journey. This can be found at the following link https://www.spth.gob.es/ or through the SPAIN TRAVEL HEALTH-SpTH application (Android and Apple). Once completed, a QR code will be sent to the traveller that must be presented upon arrival in the country. All companies or selling-tickets agents must inform travellers at the beginning of the sales process of the obligation to present the public health form at the airport or port of destination.

 

Travellers arriving by air or sea must take a health check before entering the country. These checks need to include a documentary check-up, a visual control of the traveller's conditions, and a temperature check that will be conducted to all travellers to help identify those with a temperature of 37.5ºC or higher.

 

Travelers suspected of COVID symptoms or other transmission pathologies, based on the public health form or the control carried out, will be subjected to a new health assessment to determine if they present a risk to public health. If confirmed, health alert protocols will be activated to refer the traveller to the appointed health centre.
