The entry requirement is linked to the country of departure and not the nationality of the travellers. Please note that some autonomous territories on the mainland and the islands of Ibiza and Formentera have imposed an entry ban. The measures currently vary greatly from area to area and before starting a planned trip it is therefore imperative to check the current status with the responsible foreign representation. Travellers who have stayed outside the above mentioned permitted countries before the start of the trip must expect to be refused entry. This concerns the last 14 days before entry. The following border crossings are closed: - Some land border crossings - including the border crossings at Ceuta and Melilla and some border posts with Portugal Travel within the country: Travel within the country is only partially possible until further notice. On the mainland, many areas and cities are currently not allowed to enter or leave. This also applies in parts to the islands, please inform yourself in advance about the local measures. You can also find an overview under the following link: https://www.mscbs.gob.es/profesionales/saludPublica/ccayes/alertasActual/nCov/estrategia/medidasPrevCCAA.htm. Regarding the entry to the Balearic Islands, please note the following: Travellers arriving from other Spanish regions must present negative test evidence if the respective region has an incidence of 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or more.

Important on entry: A negative COVID 19 test must be presented. The testing requirement applies to travellers by air and sea entering from risk areas.
