As of June 7, Spain is now open to vaccinated Americans. Spain is a beautiful country offering something for everyone! Great food, culture, art, architecture, friendly people, and wonderful scenery abound from every region of Spain. In fact, each region has its own distinct beauty, culture, and food! It does not matter if you are adventurous and like to stay out late or prefer to relax during their daily siesta, Spain will satisfy any travel style and interests!
Below are the requirements to enter Spain without quarantine.
- Travelers must have a vaccination certificate and have received their final dose of vaccine at least 14 days prior to travel. The three vaccines in the U.S. are accepted: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Click here for more info on what must be included on the vaccination certificate.
- Minor children can enter Spain if they are entering with their vaccinated parents. However, children 6 years old and older will need to present a negative Covid test within 48 hours of travel if not vaccinated (accepted tests are NAAT or antigen). Children under 6 do not need a vaccination certificate or Covid test.
- All travelers must fill out a health questionnaire form, which can be filled out online or downloaded at spth.gob.es. Completing the health form will generate a QR code, which will need to be shown on arrival.
- All passengers will be subject to a temperature check upon arrival.

ALWAYS make sure to follow directions carefully when traveling to a country open to the U.S., as each country has unique protocols. Make sure to re-check requirements multiple times before departure.
Please remember to travel responsibly, wear your mask and do not travel unnecessarily if you are elderly or immune-compromised! And remember to check your destination’s travel restrictions/requirements before and during planning, as well as double-checking before departure!
