Health requirements for Spain access

A negative COVID-19 test is now essential for all visitors aged 5 and over travelling by land, air or sea into Spain, unless they have been vaccinated or can prove recovery of COVID-19.

All non-vaccinated visitors arriving from high risk areas within Europe are now required to provide a negative PCR or rapid antigen test taken no less than 48 hours before arrival into the country. Proof of documents to allow entry include:

  • A certificate of vaccination issued by your local health authority,
  • The provision of an EU-approved PCR or antigen test with a negative result taken 48 hours prior to arrival in Spain.
  • A certificate of recovery issued by a health authority or medical service at least 11 days after a positive test, and within 180 days of the result.
  • All certificates must be in Spanish, English, French or German, or accompanied by a Spanish translation by an official authority.
  • Those working in transportation and cross-border workers will be exempt, as well as those who live in the border zone.

A group of street artists from the Madrid Street Art Project take a rural safari every year to the rocky Zamora province in northwestern Spain. Led by local graffiti artist, Antonio ‘Parsec’ Feliz, the street artists descend on Castrogonzalo, a picturesque rural village with just 500 residents, and floods the buildings’ dusty façades with colourful murals to liven up the barren landscape.
