Before you start planning your journey to Madrid, please check carefully the COVID19 regulations regarding entry into and exit from Spain and return to your home country.

See below the information published by the Spanish Government. These measures will be updated periodically depending on the evolution of the pandemic, so we advise you to check them carefully before you travel.

The Government of Spain has implemented a series of measures to protect the general public’s health, including health control of passengers upon arrival in Spain.

Remember, too, that when you return, you will have to check the conditions of entry to your respective countries of origin.

These regulations change regularly depending on the evolution of the pandemic and the level of risk in both the country of origin and destination.
