Read our Peace of Mind Promise and Coronavirus policy here.

This document contains the latest information about the protocols, preventative measures and changes adopted in Spain in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Sunvil's approach to holidays in Spain is refreshing. Our aim is to introduce our guests to the real country, away from the popular seaside resorts and tourist honeypots. We want our guests to experience local life, experience the country's wondrous natural settings and cultural sites, and, most of all, return home with the feeling that they have discovered somewhere special.

Throughout the pandemic, we have closely monitored government guidance, regional policies and have maintained a continuous dialogue with our colleagues in Spain. Below we have highlighted the facts and guidelines relating to accommodation, shops and services. It is important to note that guidelines are being updated daily and you should contact us should you have any specific questions or concerns.

This document was updated on Monday 09 May. 

Testing guidance

Fully vaccinated travellers: This status applies if you have received both vaccinations (with the second dose issued less than 270 days prior to departure and more than 14 days prior to departure) OR in receipt of the booster vaccination.

  • Pre-departure test: This is not required for fully vaccinated travellers - see below for details of the evidence required. 
  • Form to enter Spain: This is not required.
  • Test in resort: You may also be subject to additional checks at the point of entry including a temperature check, visual health assessment, or testing on arrival. Passengers may also be contacted and required to undertake a PCR, TMA or LAMP test at any point up to 48 hours after their arrival in Spain. More information can be found on the Spanish government’s Border Health Control's web page.
  • Test to return to the UK: This is not required.
  • Form to enter the UK: This is not required.
  • Test on return to the UK: Testing on return to the UK is not required.

* Evidence for passengers in receipt of both vaccinations or in receipt of the booster vaccination (NHS App OR letter):

  • The NHS App: This application is valid on smart phones and tablets and requires ALL passengers to register for their own account. The account is connected to your NHS number, date of birth and postcode. The application will display your Covid-19 vaccine record.
  • An official certificate from the NHS: This certificate can be obtained by calling "119" from any UK landline or mobile (or by dialling "111" if resident in Wales). This request takes 5-7 days.
  • You should check that your name on your passport matches how it is displayed on your NHS Covid App/certificate (Pass). If the names are different, contact your GP practice to have your details updated. Middle names are not required on the App/certificate. 
  • We recommend you travel with a printed copy of your vaccination certificate. A printed copy of your vaccination status (as obtained by the NHS App) must be dated after 01 November.

If you have not received both vaccinations:

  • Spain's borders are currently not open for UK leisure travellers not in receipt of both vaccinations. As such, Sunvil is not recommending leisure travel at this time for those in this situation.

Children aged 17yrs and younger:

  • Pre-departure test - Children aged 12-17yrs: This is not required for children aged 11yrs and younger. Children aged 12-17yrs must undertake a PCR test within 72 hours of arrival into Spain. A negative test result is required in order to travel. Alternatively, travellers aged 12 to 17 can still enter Spain with a full vaccination certificate.
  • Form to enter Spain: Spain has a Travel Health Control form which travellers aged 12 and over must complete no more than 48 hours before travel to Spain, unless they can show proof of being fully vaccinated or of having recovered from prior COVID-19 infection in the last 6 months. Anyone who has not completed this form electronically via the Spain Travel Health website or app may submit it in paper format prior to boarding. Airlines are denying boarding to those who fail to provide evidence of their submission and their unique QR code.
  • Test in resort: You may also be subject to additional checks at the point of entry including a temperature check, visual health assessment, or testing on arrival. Passengers may also be contacted and required to undertake a PCR, TMA or LAMP test at any point up to 48 hours after their arrival in Spain. More information can be found on the Spanish government’s Border Health Control's web page.
  • Test to return to the UK: This is not required.
  • Form to enter the UK: This is not required.
  • Test on return to the UK: Testing on return to the UK is not required.
