Spain welcomes vaccinated American travelers starting June 7th, 2021

From June 7, tourists from the United States are able to travel to Spain if they have completed their vaccination schedule at least 14 days before traveling. Upon arrival, travelers will no longer be asked to quarantine.

Travelers will have to show proof of vaccination. Official vaccination certificates, issued by the country of origin’s health authorities will be accepted, if the vaccine administered is one of those authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or included in the WHO emergency use list. These vaccines are currently those manufactured by Pfizer-Biontech, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, Jansen / Johnson&Johnson, Sinovac and Sinopharm.

Vaccination certificate

The vaccination certificate shall include at least the following information:

  1. First and last name of the holder
  2. Date of vaccination, indicating the date of the last dose administered
  3. Type of vaccine administered
  4. Number of doses administered/complete schedule
  5. Issuing country
  6. Identification of the body issuing the vaccination certificate

Unvaccinated minors from the same family unit may enter carrying a negative negative PCR or similar test (NAAT type), or negative antigen test of those included in the common list of the European Commission, issued within 48 hours prior to arrival in Spain. Children under 6 will not need any tests.

Health control form

All passengers arriving in Spain by air or sea, including those in transit and those under 6 years of age, must complete a health control form before departure through the website or the Spain Travel Health app (OSAndroid). The completion of the form generates an individualized QR code that the traveler must present to the transport companies before boarding, as well as at the sanitary controls at the point of entry to Spain.
