U.S. citizens can travel from the United States to Spain:

  1. On non-essential travel (such as tourism or business) if they show they are vaccinatedor have a recovery certificate.
  2. On essential travel (such as workers and students with specific long term visas) if they show they are vaccinated, have a recovery certificate, or show a negative COVID test.
  3. Minors up to 12 years of age do not have to show vaccination or negative COVID test.
  4. Minors between 12 and 18 may show they are vaccinated or have a recovery certificate, or a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the trip.

Vaccines are valid from 14 days after the last dose up to 270 days. If more than 270 days (9 months) have passed since receiving the last required dose of their COVID-19 vaccine, U.S. citizens must show proof of having received a booster shot. The booster shot certificate is valid since the day it was administered.

Recovery certificates that are issued at least 11 days after the first positive COVID test, and up to a maximum of 180 days after the date of sampling, are accepted as valid. The COVID tests accepted are those authorized by the European Commission and must have been performed by healthcare professionals after October 1, 2021. Passengers with a Recovery Certificate other than an EU Digital COVID Certificate or equivalent must also provide documentary proof of the diagnostic test from which the Recovery Certificate is derived.

Additionally, U.S. citizens traveling from the United States to Spain must present upon arrival in Spain a QR code generated through the Spain Travel Health portal, obtained through the website or by downloading the “SpTH app” in Google Play Store or iTunes App Store for each traveler, regardless of their age and duration of the trip.

U.S. citizens who are traveling to Spain from a country that is not the United States should make sure they follow the guidance published by Spanish authorities on their local Spain Embassy website.

Please read the Spain Ministry of Health’s website for more detailed information or the US embassy website.
