Prior to travelling to Alicante Airport, it is important to ensure that you have the correct documentation and Covid certificates. These may be needed to enable you to board your flight and to avoid problems at the airport on arrival.
In addition to the information provided on this page, please also check with your airline or tour operator, as these may have additional requirements.
If you are travelling to Alicante Airport from an EU- or Schengen-country, you will no longer be subject to health controls. Therefore, you will not need to show proof of vaccination status, recovery or negative test result.
Anyone travelling to Alicante Airport from a third country must meet one fo the following requirements – please see below for further details:
You must be able to provide proof of your status via an EU Digital Covid Certificate or equivalent certificate. A health questionnaire is no longer required.
Children under the age of 12 are exempt and do not need to meet the above requirements.
Proof of vaccination is valid if a person is classed as fully vaccinated, as confirmed by the vaccination certificate.
This is based on three factors: an approved vaccine, having received the full course of the vaccination, and the timeframe since the administration of the final dose.
The vaccine needs to be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organisation (WHO). If you have received two or more different vaccines, only the vaccine that you received most recently needs to be on the list of approved vaccines.
Full course of vaccination:
To be classed as fully vaccinated, you will need to have received the complete course of vaccination (most vaccines require 2 doses).
Time of administration since the final dose:
The complete course of vaccination (i.e. in most cases the second dose) must have been given at least 15 days ago.
The complete course of vaccination (i.e. in most cases the second dose) must have been given no longer than 270 days ago.
Therefore, your vaccination becomes valid from day 15 after administration and remains valid for 270 days after administration. If the last dose of your vaccine was given more than 270 days ago, you are no longer classed as fully vaccinated, unless you have received a booster dose (in most cases, the third dose) of the vaccine. This must be clearly stated in your vaccination certificate. The booster dose does not currently have an expiry date.
Different from adults, the vaccination certificate with complete schedule for children under 18 has no expiry date.
This certificate must be issued by a competent authority or by a medical service a minimum of 11 days after the first positive PCR-test result and remains valid a maximum of 180 days after the test.
