ENTERING SPAIN

 

Health Minister has just announced the tests that EVERY visitor will have to undergo before allowed to enter Spain freely

 

Health Minister Illa said that after Sunday June 21st., visitors entering Spain will have to undergo three types of controls: a written health declaration, a temperature check, and a visual screening. If travelers fail any of these tests, a physician will examine them and send them to the healthcare services of the region where they are going to spend their stay in Spain. In order to make these procedures smoother, airports are incorporating thermal imaging and digital declarations.
