Although Spain has reopened its borders to fully vaccinated travellers from nine southern African countries, (removing a travel ban instated on November 30), it still considers these countries “high-risk”, and so a 10-day quarantine is required of travellers from these destinations upon their arrival.

Quarantine can be shortened by getting a negative result from either a PCR or rapid antigen test taken on Day 7 of quarantine.

Additionally, travellers must show proof of a negative test result, (taken within the 72 hours prior to arrival if a PCR test, or 24 hours if a rapid antigen test).

All passengers arriving in Spain from any country, including those in transit to other countries, must complete a Health Control Form before departure and obtain their QR code to present at boarding and on arrival in Spain.
