Travelling to Spain? Here’s what you need to know..

Although the vaccination drive against Covid-19 has picked up throughout the world, travel restrictions remain in Spain.

The country, a tourism hub, is also the most-sought after destination for study abroad students coming in from Europe as well as other parts of the world. Some of the renowned educational institutions in Spain have their campuses in cities like Madrid and Barcelona. These institutions, in partnership with universities, provide UK and Swiss degrees to students pursuing studies in Spain.

It is now very simple to enter Spain, especially for European students. If one is coming from an area included in the EU/EEA list of countries at risk, one must certify one of these three requirements.

  1. Certificate of vaccination
  2. Diagnostic certificate
  3. Certificate of recovery

If a student is travelling from a country or territory included in the list of countries with low incidence, i.e. excluded from the risk zone, you can travel without the need for a diagnostic test or a certificate of vaccination or immunity.

In line with the European Center for Disease Control guidelines, travellers coming to Spain from high-risk countries for crucial reasons must provide a negative COVID-19 test result conducted within 72 hours prior to the arrival. 

If you are travelling to Spain, you must know that it is mandatory to fill out a Health Control Form regardless of your nationality, age, or any other consideration, including transit. The form can be accessed from: or by downloading the app on your mobile from the same page.

This form can be filled and signed in electronic format. After completing the form, a QR code will be generated, which should be shown to the health authorities upon arrival in Spain.

As soon as travellers enter the country, they will be subjected to health check-ups such as temperature checks and visual inspection.
