The latest measures were announced on 1 July, as restrictions for UK citizens travelling to select international destinations eased.
According to the new regulations, all visitors to Spain will be required to fill out a form, which details their personal information, the traveller's contact information, trip details and a health declaration to pass the health check upon arrival in Spain. The form must be completed 48 hours prior to travelling to Spain, with parts of the form to be completed no further in advance than 48 hours prior to arrival.
Upon completion of the sanitary control form (FCS), travellers will be issued with a QR code that they must present at the airport upon arrival during health checks.
According to the Spain Travel Health (SpTH) programme website, where travellers can fill out the FCS, all people travelling to Spain from other countries, regardless of their nationality, age or any other consideration, are required to fill out the FCS – and each form is personal and non-transferable, and is associated with a single trip.
“This form must be completed by each of the passengers who will be responsible for ensuring that the information provided is true and accurate,” the website states. “In the event that the passenger is a minor or a dependent/disabled person, the form can be filled in by their tutor, who will be responsible for the veracity of the information provided.”
Should arrivals display symptoms of or be diagnosed with Covid-19, Spanish authorities will refer the passenger to a health centre for further testing.
