Most years since 2012. Hoping now for 2022.
Many people are asking "What Covid tests/vaccines/etc. will I need and what are the travel restrictions?"

The answers are continuously changing, so you must check for yourself, close to the time of travel. The moderators recommend the following approach:

First, search your own country's travel restrictions.

Secondly, search the EU/ Spain's current travel restrictions and requirements. We thank vigilant forum members for recommending the following links as the most reliable sources of information:
  1. EU official website - This gives an overview of the travel and health situation in the EU countries. https://reopen.europa.eu/en. A smartphone app is available, as shown on the website.
  2. Spanish government - This is in English. https://www.spth.gob.es/ and also links to https://www.mscbs.gob.es/en/profesionales/saludPublica/ccayes/alertasActual/nCov/spth.htm
  3. Spanish Tourist Office - https://travelsafe.spain.info/es/
  4. Aena (Spanish airports) - Has FAQ in English, dealing with Covid-19 related rules for people arriving at an airport in Spain. https://www.aena.es/en/frequentlyaskedquestions.html
  5. Visit Portugal.com - https://www.visitportugal.com/en/content/covid-19-measures-implemented-portugal
  6. French Government website - https://www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19
  7. Coming-to-France website - https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/c...virus-advice-for-foreign-nationals-in-france/
Browsing the forum threads in the Covid and the Camino section will give you a further idea of the changeability and complexity of the situation, but remember that you cannot rely on the accuracy of any forum posts on this important matter.

I have edited and bumped this thread as a reminder of where people should get their information on travel requirements to Spain, Portugal and France. Thanks to the members who have helped develop this list of resources. :)
