Key Points

  • Spain reduced the validity period for antigen tests for entrance into Spain


On February 1, 2022, the government of Spain published an amendment to its existing entry requirements. Travelers arriving in Spain will now be required to produce a negative antigen test taken 24 hours before arrival. Alternatively, travelers will also be permitted to enter Spain with a negative nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) taken within 72 hours before arrival.

What are the Changes?

The government of Spain reduced the validity period of rapid antigen tests required for entry into the country from 48 hours to 24 hours. This decision was made following an EU Council recommendation regarding the facilitation of free movement throughout the European Union during the pandemic.
