Entry Requirements - Valencia

COVID-19

Health requirements for entry into Spain

If you are preparing a trip to Valencia by plane from abroad, it is compulsory to fill in this Health Control Form which can be accessed from the page spth.gob.es or by downloading the app on your mobile phone from the same page. The Spanish airports have incorporated three security filters for passengers:

  • temperature, in a very efficient and high rigour process
  • a documentary control, based on the responsible declarations with health information that allows the traceability or the follow up of the person
  • a visual control

When the form is completed, a personal QR code is generated. Travellers must present this at the airline counter before boarding, as well as at health checkpoints at the point of entry into Spain.
