Travelers arriving in Spain will be subjected to three tests on arrival

19th June

The Health Check upon arrival at Alicante Airport will be carried out by the external health personnel who have been reinforced with a hundred people

These checks which include filling out a document stating where they will be staying for the duration of their trip and whether they’ve previously had coronavirus, a temperature control and a visual inspection.

Passenger Information Form which you can do online here where you will then receive a QR code to show when entering Spain https://www.spth.gob.es

Please do not panic if you have trouble with the form as these will also be available to complete as part of your entry into Spain.

If you are arriving by car or Ferry 

Before you travel to or return to Spain, you must complete a paper format Passenger Locator Form. You must print and complete this form prior to disembarkation, staff will collect this form in the garage before you disembark.

The control, which will begin to be applied this Sunday in ports and airports , will be carried out by foreign health personnel - made up of around 540 professionals, of whom 150 are doctors and nurses - who have been reinforced with a hundred people.

This was indicated this Friday by the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, at a press conference at the Palacio de la Moncloa, in which he stressed that, from this Sunday, there will be a sufficient number of troops to "subject all and each of the travelers " to those three primary controls.

The first control will be a document that the traveler must fill in with information for their location and information "on whether or not they have gone through the epidemic and under what conditions," Illa said.

In addition, there will be a second control of the temperature of the traveler, and a visual control.

If one of these three primary controls is not passed, Illa has continued, the traveler will be examined by a doctor.

Health expects that there will be no problems with tourists and that they agree to undergo the PCR tests, if necessary, although sources in the department have warned that if anyone resists "they will go straight to court", according to the protocol designed in this regard.
