Countries where you can travel after COVID 19

The state of alarm has come to an end in Spain after 14 months and in most communities the perimeter closures are no longer applied, but where can I travel or move?

We collect information from the media, international organizations, embassies and ministries so that you know where and how you can travel again this spring and this summer. And we extend all the information about the Covid Passport here.

It is important to bear in mind that if you are vaccinated with the complete guideline and you are a COVID passport holder, you will not have to take advantage of the averages detailed here, but the related ones with the COVID passport that you can read here.

Those vaccinated with 1 dose can now travel to the Balearic Islands without PCR or antigens.

Germany removes Spain from the high-risk list for COVID19. Although they must continue to present a negative test, a vaccination certificate or proof of having overcome the disease, people over the age of twelve who enter Germany from Spain will no longer have to keep ten days of quarantine, which could be reduced to five with a negative test.

That said, even if mobility between territories is allowed, we recommend that you check specifically with the website of the health ministry of each Autonomous Community to see if they require entry registration upon arrival.
