Restrictions

Are there any health restrictions applying in Spain which I should be aware of when attending the Congress?

Currently, there are no COVID-19 safety requirements in Spain to attend events such as the FIP and CNF Congresses.

Do I have to travel with the certificate or document proving vaccination against COVID-19/diagnostic test/ recovery of COVID-19 to enter Spain?

If you are travelling to Spain by air or sea from within the European Union or a Schengen area country, you will not be required to present a Covid-19 certificate or the SpTH health control form. However, people travelling from non-EU countries to Spain should check information on safety restrictions at the Spanish Foreign Affairs website (please find this here) as they may be required to fulfill an online traveler form (SpTH form), which is available in the said website, before arrival.

Is it mandatory to wear a mask?

In Spain, wearing a face mask is mandatory when travelling on public transport, in hospitals, in health and social care institutions and in community pharmacies. It is not mandatory for children under 6 years old or for those with disabilities that make their use unfeasible or respiratory conditions that may be aggravated by the use of a mask.
