Temporary restriction of non-essential trips to Spain
and mandatory quarantine: questions and answers

In which cases can I travel to Spain, taking into account the current restrictions?

Nowadays at the borders they will deny you the entry if you do not belong to one of the following categories:

I. General categories:

  • Be a resident in Spain
  • Travelling directly to your place of residence in another Member State, Schengen Associated State (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) or Andorra
  • Be the spouse of a Spanish citizen or partner registered in a public registry
  • Be an ascendant or descendant of a Spanish citizen, if you live in live in his/her charge and travel with him/her or travel to meet with him/her
  • Have a long-term visa issued by a State of the European Union or a Schengen Associated State
  • Have duly accredited imperative family reasons.
  • Having duly accredited reasons of force majeure or situation of need, or humanitarian reasons.

II. Categories by reason of the provision of labour services:

  • Cross-border workers.
  • Health or elderly care professionals who go to or return from carrying out their work activity.
  • Staff dedicated to the transport of goods in the exercise of their work activity, including the crew of the ships, if the immediate continuation of the trip is assured.
  • Commercial air transport flight staff, if they are assured of the immediate continuation of the trip.
  • Diplomatic staff, staff of international organizations, military and members of humanitarian organizations, in the exercise of their duties.

If I don't belong to one of these categories, when can I fly to Spain?

At the moment it is unknown. The temporary non-essential travel restriction is in effect for now until June 15 of this year. But it could be extended for several more weeks.

I am not a resident in Spain, but I am a property owner in Spain or I have a rented property. Can I travel to Spain, even if there is a travel restriction?

If you are not a resident in Spain, you can only travel to Spain if you belong to one of the aforementioned categories, even if you own a property or have rented a property.

I have been authorized to enter Spain, because I belong to one of the categories indicated above. Will I have to remain in quarantine?

Yes, you must remain in quarantine the 14 days following your arrival in Spain. This means that you must stay at your home or in your accommodation during these 14 days. You can only go out if you have to buy food or basic products, if you have to go to the doctor or you have a cause of force majeure or a situation of need.

When will I be able to travel to Spain without having to keep this quarantine?

When the alarm state in Spain ends. For now, the alarm state is extended until Sunday, May 24. But the government wants to request a new one-month extension, which, if approved, would end on June 24.

I have been authorized to enter Spain because I am a cross-border worker, truck driver, crew member or health professional, do I also have to remain in quarantine?

No, in that case you will not have to remain in quarantine, unless you have been in contact with people diagnosed with Covid-19.
