Q&A: Can I travel to Spain with my children if they haven’t been vaccinated?
Spain has historically been a family holiday hot spot. Until December 1 2021 unvaccinated travellers could enter by showing a negative test.
This has now changed as Spain is now following the European Union Commission’s recommendations and have announced that from February 1, only vaccination certificates stating that a traveller has received their second dose within the last 270 days will be recognised. The only option is to get a booster to enter.
Vaccinations must be recognised by the European Medicines Agency or the World Health Organisation.
This means that any aged 12 or over must be fully vaccinated. Travellers “cannot enter with a diagnostic test or a recovery certificate.”
There is also some paperwork to be aware of. All passengers must also complete and sign an online Health Control Form no more than 48 hours prior to travel, declaring any known history of exposure to Covid-19 and giving contact details.
