Going to Spain – the Latest Rules

Can we, can’t we? Should we, shouldn’t we? More or less than 30km? If you’re unsure as to what the rules are regarding travel between the P-O and Spain, we hear ya’!

Fortunately, Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, has made a clear announcement that as of midnight on Monday 7th June, rules will change regarding crossing the border.

He says:

“All passengers coming from a country or area at risk [which includes France] will have to present a certificate or document proving that they have been vaccinated against Covid-19, a negative test certificate for active infection or a certificate of immunity after recovery from this disease, in order to enter Spain”.

The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya, confirmed that European nationals can present the pass sanitaire. Otherwise, presentation of a document justifying the cases mentioned above will be accepted, regardless of your nationality.


The following are not concerned by the above measures:

  • Children under 6
  • Lorry drivers
  • Cross-border workers
  • Those living within 30km of the border


  1. Sanchez is prime minister not president. Spain is a monarchy not a republic.
