  • Got a negative test result for COVID-19

Visitors will have to prove this by giving a ‘travel certificate’ to police when they arrive in Spain. The travel certificate will prove that the person can safely enter Spain.

A big part of Spain’s economy is tourism. The Spanish government wants to start tourism as soon as possible to help businesses in Spain make money again. Spain is also trying to vaccinate its citizens as quickly as possible to make it a safe country for travelling once again.
