Travelers from the United States and Israel will only be able to enter Spain with vaccines
As of September 6, travelers from the United States and Israel will only be able to enter Spain vaccinated against Covid-19, or for a justified reason, according to the BOE (Official State Gazette).
To enter Spain, travelers from the United States and Israel must present a certificate of a complete vaccination schedule carried out 14 days before the trip, or be residents in Spain.
It is important to bear in mind that, depending on the country of origin, the restrictions applied at the border are different. Currently, to enter Spain by air or sea, the countries of the European Union and the Schengen area have free entry.
Other countries, such as the United States and Israel, are part of a long list of countries considered risk zones. This list is constantly updated by the Ministry of Health.
Entry requirements for Spain
Depending on the country of origin, travelers from third countries wishing to enter Spain must present a complete vaccination schedule, a negative PRC test, or a certificate of recovery, i.e. having passed the Covid-19 test.
It is also important to note that only vaccines accepted by the European Medicines Agency or the WHO will be accepted. Children under twelve years of age accompanied by a vaccinated adult will not be required to present a vaccination certificate. Travelers coming from the United Kingdom may present a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR
