What is the health control form (FCS) and what is it for?

The FCS, according to its initials, is a Sanitary Control Form. It is based on international initiatives of public health and aviation organizations to protect the health of travelers and residents. This model has been adopted by the Government of Spain as part of the mandatory health control measures for passengers from other countries in the context of the health emergency caused by COVID-19. The objective is to assess the health status of travelers upon arrival in Spain and guarantee their traceability if necessary. If for example, it is considered that they may have had a close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or another communicable infectious disease that may put the health of all at risk.

This form consists of 5 sections that contain questions about personal information, the traveler's contact information, trip details and a health declaration to pass the health check upon arrival in Spain.

The information provided is used only by the Spanish health authorities, according to the purposes set out in Spanish legislation in relation to health control, and always in order to protect their health, that of other passengers and that of all citizens.

Who has to fill out the FCS health control form?

All people traveling to Spain from other countries, regardless of their nationality, age or any other consideration.

Each form is personal and non-transferable and is associated with a single trip.

From July 1st, 2020, if you fly to Spain from other countries, it is mandatory to fill out and sign the FCS form associated with your trip, regardless of your nationality, age or any other consideration.

This form must be completed by each of the passengers who will be responsible for ensuring that the information provided is true and accurate.
