What are the Covid 19 rules when traveling to Spain?
Connected to the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC), which allows restriction-free travel across all EU and EEA countries following proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test.
Antigen tests are now accepted instead of PCRs for travellers from countries on the list of risk zones – including France and Germany – while no tests are required for low-incidence areas.
Travellers from the UK must show proof of being fully vaccinated. This means you must have received the second dose at least 14 days before arrival. Children under 12 years old are exempt when travelling with an adult. This rule applies to the whole of Spain, including the Canary Islands and the Balearics.
If your last vaccination was more than 270 days ago you will also need a booster to enter the country or you will be considered unvaccinated. Unvaccinated 12 to 17 year olds now need a pcr test to enter Spain.
Simply follow the instructions on the test kit provided. All test require the use of a swab.
To ensure safe travel, some airlines require proof that travelers are fit to fly. This means you need to have proof of a negative Covid test prior to your flight. Our tests are delivered to your home so you can take your test and receive a Fit to Fly Certificate in time for your trip.
We use Royal Mail 'Tracked 24' - in the majority of cases, tests sent via a priority postbox, before the last collection time, will arrive at the laboratory the next day (excluding Sundays and bank holidays).
In a small number of cases deliveries by Royal Mail can be delayed, this would delay your result. You may leave your house to post your test.
All of our laboratories state that results will be available within 24 hours of test sample receipt although often it is quicker than that.
You will receive an email from the laboratory.
You can easily create your own unique test reference number.
Always use our unique identifier CTLSS and the your date of birth in 6 number format ( as the example bellow) then simply add 1 to the end of your date of birth if you purchased a single test.
If you ordered two tests and one is for another person please add 2 to the end of your date of birth. This creates the identifier for the second test.
The first example below is for date of birth 26th August 1954 and one test.
The second example is for the same date of birth but for 2 tests.
The reference number contain 7 numbers.
Example 1 -CTLSS2608541
Example 2 -CTLSS2608542
