MESSAGE FOR U.S. CITIZENS
By U.S. Mission Spain | 5 June, 2021
Event: Effective June 7, 2021, vaccinated U.S. citizens can travel from the United States to Spain if they present the following documents upon arrival in Spain:
Minor children can enter Spain if they are traveling with their vaccinated parents. However, all children 6 years of age or older will need to present a vaccination certificate or one of the following:
Children under 6 years of age are not subject to these requirements.
At this time, we do not have additional details about which specific vaccine certificates, such as those provided by the CDC, will be accepted to allow entry for U.S. citizens into Spain. Please refer to the Spain Travel Health portal (FAQs), and we will update our website with this information as soon as it is available.
If any of the certificates (vaccination, recovery, or test) are invalid, health authorities may require an antigen test taken at the airport or a PCR test after arrival and/or may not allow the passenger entry into Spain.
Please be aware that travel immediately following this change may involve extensive wait times upon arrival as implementation is rolled out.
Unvaccinated U.S. citizens are still not permitted to enter Spain unless they meet very specific requirements or have already obtained special permission from the Government of Spain. Please check the Spanish regulations carefully before attempting to travel.
