All Brits flying to Spain must now fill out compulsory health form before travel

Brits travelling to Spain must now fill out a form giving details about their stay before flying.

The new document is now compulsory for all holidaymakers entering from other countries, as of yesterday.

Some parts of it relating to health and travel history can only be filled out less than 48 hours before you travel – to ensure it is up to date.

Currently, the Foreign Office advises against all non-essential travel.



All travellers entering Spain must fill out this form

But already hundreds of Brits have flown to Spain this week.

Now all travellers will have to complete this form before stepping on the plane, in order to be allowed into the country.

The document consists of five sections and requires: your passport identity number, information about your flight and where you will stay in Spain, and an email address.

Travellers will also need to know where they will be sitting on the plane.

The new policy requires each person in your travelling group to separately fill out a form – so a family of four would need to fill it out four times and receive four separate codes.

The new measure was highlighted by The Spanglish Girl, who wrote about the policy on her blog.

To complete the form, you must upload your details to this website.

When you fill it out, you will receive an email with a security code and a link to your form.

Once it is completed, travellers will be sent a personal QR code, which you must carry on your phone or a printed copy to pass the airport health checks.

Until the end of July, holidaymakers arriving at the airport in Spain will be allowed to complete it in paper if they have not filled it out.

Holidaymakers will also be face temperature checks and a visual inspection at the airport.

If they fail any of the checks, they will be required to see a doctor.

The new measures will help authorities track and trace coronavirus outbreaks speedily.

If you don’t have an email address, you can use the same one as someone you are travelling with, or a family member.



Brits have started flying to Spain – despite the Foreign Office advising against travel

Parents can fill out their forms for their children, and they must be completed for every traveller, regardless of age.

Brits will soon be able to travel to 75 countries without needing to isolate on their return to the UK, according to reports.

The Daily Telegraph says the Government is set to ditch ‘air bridges’ in favour of modifying the new quarantine measures instead.

According to the paper, this will see the UK lift a ban on non-essential travel to many EU destinations, and allow long-haul holidays to countries such as Turkey, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand.

A new ‘traffic light system’ will denote which countries are safe to travel to, with those rated green or amber deemed safe.

But people returning from ‘red countries’ will still have to isolate for 14 days.

People who fail to comply can be fined £1,000 in England, and police are allowed to use “reasonable force” to make sure they follow the rules.
