Destination Entry Requirements

The Spain Government currently prohibits all but essential travel to Spain, inclusive of the United States. Please check the Spanish regulations before attempting to travel. Currently, health screening procedures are in place at airports and other ports of entry. Some municipalities in Spain have restrictions on intercity or interstate travel.

Additionally, U.S. citizens travelling from the United States or certain other countries will need to show a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours prior to arrival and complete a Health Control Form.

The Spanish government has determined that before traveling to Spain, all passengers arriving must complete the Health Control Form (FCS) and show the QR code at the Border Health Control at the airport upon arrival in Spain.

The form can be found: https://www.spth.gob.es/

Once you fill out the form, you will obtain the QR Code. The QR code can also be retrieved from: https://www.spth.gob.es/ after form is completed online.

The form must be completed for each passenger. Parents or legal guardians can complete the form for minors, dependents, or disabled persons.

You can start the form at any time before your flight, but you can only answer health questions and finalize the form 48 hours before your arrival in Spain.
