If you’re aged 12 or over, and fully vaccinated, you must provide:
Proof of full vaccination: To be fully vaccinated, you must have received both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine, at least 14 days before your arrival. You must have had your final dose of the vaccine within 270 days of arriving into Spain. If you’ve received this more than 270 days prior to travel to Spain, you must be able to show proof of having received a booster jab. However, final dose of the vaccine has no expiry date for children aged 12-17, so they won't need to show proof of booster. Please note, you don’t have to wait any minimum time after receiving your booster to travel and there’s currently no expiry date for booster jabs.
If you’re aged 12 or over, and not fully vaccinated, you must provide proof of either a:
- Negative COVID-19 PCR taken, at most, 72 hours before your scheduled arrival time
- Negative COVID-19 rapid antigen (RAT) test taken, at most, 24 hours before your scheduled departure time
- Digital certificate of recovery from COVID-19 dated between 11 to 180 days after testing positive
Please note, the UK Government has advised that you can’t use the free NHS tests for international travel as the result certificates don’t contain all the required information.
This excludes children aged 11 or under
How to get proof of your vaccination status
An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details (including if you’ve had a booster) and will be accepted for travel. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, the process is different. Find out more about how to get proof of your vaccination status.
Please note, your business card-sized paper COVID-19 vaccination record card isn’t an acceptable form of vaccine status proof and can’t be used to enter. COVID-19 recovery documents aren’t acceptable either, and you won’t be able to board if you try to use one instead of proof of full vaccination. Read more government information.
