Mandatory Diagnostic Tests to Enter Spain

Beginning November 23, 2020, all individuals who would like to enter Spain from one of the countries or risk areas listed in this publication of the Official State Bulletin (Boletín Oficial del Estado/BOE) Gazette, must have a Diagnostic Test for Active Infection (PDIA) for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, carried out in the 72 hours prior to arrival in Spain. There are two types of PDIA: PCR tests and antigen tests.

Visitors to Spain from these locations must provide this test with a negative result and will not have to respect a quarantine period upon arrival in our country. Below is the list of countries and areas of risk, from which visitors must perform the diagnostic test in order to enter Spain, as detailed in the BOE publication.

As these entry requirements are subject to change, we recommend always confirming with the airline prior to travel.
