Planning to cycle from Santiago to Porto, crossing Portuguese border around 1st August. Trying to register my arrival for COVID, but none of the options to complete a COVID tracking form applies to me. An Australian citizen, just spent 15 days cycling from Pamplona to Santiago. So I am arriving by land from Spain. The form asks if I am travelling by car, train, or plane. Also, I have only had one shot of Pfizer. The form says there are no restrictions on entering Portugal by road, except registration is necessary.

300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

I notice Spain requires a QR code for ALL visitors...yet the online application is for arrivals by air OR ferry/cruise. So walking into Spain from France...no QR needed?? Anyone with insight?

There also doesn't seem to be allowance for those people who cross the border on horseback, skateboard or canoe. I guess that those people either aren't allowed to cross the border or else they need to read between the lines 😉

Hi bkkboy, to cut a long comment short, I don't think that you have to fill in the form when you cross from Spain into Portugal on bicycle. This is not only how I understand the text on visitportugal.com but also the form itself. It is meant for travellers who have been in Brazil, India, Nepal, South Africa or the United Kingdom during the previous 14 days, see screenshot below:

Correct. You currently do not need to fill in the Spanish SpTH form and you do not need to obtain the QR code that goes with it when you walk from France to Spain. It even says so on their website but it is difficult to find this legally fixed exception among all the text there.
