IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR TRIP

If you are travelling to Spain from abroad (including the Schengen Zone) you will need to fill out a “Health Control Form”, within 48 hours before your flight, through the website www.spth.gob.es or by downloading the app on your mobile device from the same site. You will need to know your assigned seat to complete this form, so we recommend checking in online first. Once you have completed this process you will receive a QR code that you can download on your mobile device or print out. This is necessary to be able to board your flight and will be required upon arrival by the Authorities.

Additionally, if the country or area of origin of your trip is considered an at risk zone, in order to board the flight, you must have a PDIA (diagnostic test of active infection) for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, preformed within 72 hours prior to your arrival at your destination. The accepted PDIA for SARS-CoV-2 is the PCR test (RT-PCR COVID-19). The document accreditation of the PDIA result will be verified by the Authorities upon arrival at your destination in Spain, must be the original copy, must be in Spanish or in English, and can presented in either paper or electronic format. The document must contain, at least, the following information: the name of the traveler, the passport number or national identity document or letter (which must match the one used in the Health Control Form), the date of the completion of the test, identification and contact details of the center performing the analysis, the technique used and the negative test result. You can check the at risk countries on the Ministry of Health´s website: www.mscbs.gob.es/ and online at SpTH: www.spth.gob.es.
