Spain announced that travellers from the United States will now be able to enter the country without being subject to the testing and quarantine requirements, regardless of their vaccination status. Effective immediately, the new measure applies to all US citizens who do not visit any other country before arriving in Spain.
Nonetheless, it should be noted that connecting flights without leaving the airport are still allowed.
Now that travellers from the US no longer need to undergo COVID-19 testing or stay self-isolated upon their arrival in Spain, the only requirement they have to follow is to fill out a Health Control Form.
The form can be filled out electronically, and once completed, travellers will receive a QR code which must be shown to the health authorities upon their arrival. If the travellers justify such an action, the form can also be provided in paper format. However, it should be kept in mind that a separate form should be filled for each individual and trip. Previously, Americans had to prove that they received the required COVID-19 doses at least 14 days before arrival in order to be allowed to enter Spain.
