Everyone who comes to Spain and is not a Spanish national falls under the category of a foreigner. Sometimes border control authorities may impose certain obstacles when dealing with foreigners entering the country.
Depending on the situation, the Interior Ministry at the request of the Ministry of Health, Employment and Immigration may require you to present a health certificate upon arrival at the airport. The point of this certificate is to prove that you are not suffering from any disease listed in national as well as international health agreements and regulations. This health certificate must be issued in your country of origin by medical services approved by Diplomatic Missions or the Spanish Consular Office.
You must request this document at an office that is approved by either the Diplomatic Missions or Spanish Consular Office. If it has not been issued by an authorized medical service, it will not be valid.
If you are not able to get the medical certificate in your home country then you have the option to get it done by competent Spanish authorities at the border when you arrive in Spain.
If you want to avoid being quarantined until your health situation has been thoroughly reviewed by border control authorities, we recommend that you contact our law firm in Madrid. We will inform you on where you have to go to get all the documentation that you need to help facilitate your entry into Spain.
