From Monday, November 23rd, Spanish authorities now ask for a negative PCR from international travellers who travel there from “high-risk countries”. You have to have done this test within 72 hours prior to your arrival in Spain. This is not an easy task. Note that you will have to investigate where, how and when to get the test done in your country of origin and make sure that the result is available in time so you do not risk being subject to high fines when entering the country. The fines can reach 6,000€, so do not take this lightly!

Please note that the list of countries or areas at risk, as well as the criteria used for their definition, will be reviewed every two weeks and updated on the website of the Ministry of Health: and on the Spain Travel Health website:
