WHAT CONTROL AND WHEN?
The provisions of the preceding paragraph shall apply to international passengers whose final destination is Spain and not to those international passengers in transit at a Spanish port or airport with a final destination to another country. The sanitary control prior to entry will be carried out at the first Spanish port or airport where the passenger arrives.
Passengers arriving in Spain by air or sea must undergo a temperature control, which will be carried out routinely in order to identify travelers with fever. A temperature equal to or greater than 37.5 ºC is established as the detection limit.
Every passenger from a country or risk zone listed in Annex II, who intends to enter Spain, must have a Diagnostic Test for Active Infection (hereinafter PDIA) for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, carried out in the seventy-two hours prior to arrival in Spain.
Travel agencies, tour operators, air or maritime transport companies and any other agent that sells tickets in isolation or as part of a combined trip must inform passengers, at the beginning of the process of selling tickets to Spain, as well as in the process of issuing the boarding pass, the obligation to present the Health Control Form at the airport or port of destination. Likewise, if the country or area of origin of the trip is classified as risky, they must report the obligation to have a PDIA for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative result, carried out in the seventy-two hours prior to arrival.
THE LIST OF COUNTRIES OR RISK AREAS
The list of countries or risk zones established in Annex II, as well as the criteria used for their definition, will be reviewed every fifteen days and their update will be published on the website of the Ministry of Health.
