Extra personnel have been taken on at Spain’s airports this summer to ensure every single traveller is checked upon arrival, especially now the EU has opened its borders to a number of third countries, which at the moment does not include Russia, the USA and Brazil.
Temperatures will be taken and anyone showing a body temperature of more than 37.5ºC could be stopped, as this is normally the threshold for a fever.
No personal data, nor camera images, will be stored, meaning all travellers’ privacy will be guaranteed.
Carriers, airlines and ships, can take passengers’ temperatures before they arrive on Spanish soil, under supervision by the government’s international health department, if they wish.
All passengers of any nationality travelling from any airport or port outside Spanish territory will be required to fill in a public health form online, which they must complete before travelling.
Once the form is filled in, the traveller will be given a QR code which they are required to present upon arrival.
