Entering the province of Galicia

A new requirement to travel to the Spanish province of Galicia has been implemented due to the pandemic, so all passengers, regardless of the means of entry, are required to complete an online form via the page (available in Galician, Spanish and English).

Who has to fill out this health form?

People, whether they are residents of Galicia or not, who come from or have been in the last fourteen days in territories with a high epidemiological incidence of COVID-19.

This reference must be understood as the country of origin of travel or in which the traveler has been in the last fourteen days prior to arrival in Galicia, not to the possession of the nationality of those countries.

Check the territories that are considered to have a high epidemiological incidence due to COVID-19 here.
