Spain will no longer subject travelers arriving to Spanish territory from countries associated with the Schengen area (area of ​​free movement in Europe) to health controls, either by air or sea, according to publishes this Thursday the Official State Gazette (BOE).

According to the new resolution of the Spanish Ministry of Health, controls are maintained for travelers who do not come from the European Union or from countries associated with Schengen and which include, at least, taking the temperature, a documentary control and a visual control on your physical state.

Health justifies this change due to the improvement in the epidemiological situation of the pandemic, which is causing many EU Member States to no longer require travelers from within the Union to present covid certificates or impose other restrictions.

Also due to the high rates of vaccination coverage in Spain (more than 92% with a complete schedule), above the European Union average, and due to the favorable situation of the Spanish health system, which is not stressed by covid patients.
