The sanitary control measures include the performance of a temperature control, a documentary control and a visual control of the physical condition of passengers.

These controls must verify that all passengers boarding for Spain comply with the following:

The date of administration of the last dose of the complete vaccine schedule must be prior to 14 days from the start date of the trip. This certificate is valid for 270 days. From that moment on, the certificate must reflect a booster dose, with the exception of vaccination certificates for those under 18 years of age, which will continue to be valid after those 270 days have elapsed.

 b) Diagnostic test certificate confirming that the holder has undergone a negative diagnostic test. Certificates with negative PCR or other molecular nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) performed within 72 hours prior to departure or rapid antigen detection test certificates performed 24 hours prior to departure will be accepted as valid .

If any passenger with symptoms compatible with Covid-19 is detected during the voyage, they will be isolated on board and a Sanitary Control established by the Port Authority will be notified for their assessment by the health personnel of said control and the performance of a rapid detection test of antigens. If this test is positive, the communication will be carried out immediately by the a Sanitary Control of the Port Authority to Foreign Health, which will dictate and coordinate the subsequent actions to be followed.

Furthermore we kindly remind you that we have implemented the e-ticket and  WEB CHECK-IN as it is an easy, efficient and environmentally friendly way to receive the tickets.
