The Spanish Tourist Office says visitors still need to follow the country’s COVID entry rules, despite no longer having to fill in a health form before travelling.

The STO has confirmed that, as of today (20 September), passengers no longer have to fill in its SpTN health form.

The confirmation follows a Facebook post by the Spanish Ministry of Health, which said: “It will no longer be necessary to complete the health check form to travel to Spain or present the QR code of SpTH (Spain Travel Health) at the airport on arrival.”

There had been speculation that Spain was due to drop its COVID requirements following last night’s Ministry of Health announcement.

But a spokeswoman for the STO told Travel Gossip: “The requirement of a vaccination, recovery or diagnostic test still applies.”

Last week, Spain said it was extending its COVID entry rules until 15 November.

Entry rules state that visitors who are not fully vaccinated must show a negative PCR or antigen test or proof of having recovered from COVID in the past six months.

Under-12s are exempt from the travel restrictions.
