Pre-cruise and Onboard Health & Safety Requirements

To protect our guests, crew and the communities we visit, we have enhanced our commitment to health and safety with the development of our SailSAFE™ program. This robust and comprehensive health and safety strategy includes new and enhanced protocols to create multiple layers of protection against COVID-19. Below are a few pre-cruise health and safety requirements.

1) Required Pre-Embarkation COVID-19 Testing & Arrival Time

All guests are required to complete a COVID-19 PCR or Antigen test from a lab or pharmacy within 72 hours of arriving to the terminal for cruises beginning in a non-U.S. port. All guests must provide proof of a negative test result (printed or digital) at embarkation and should travel with a copy of their test result. Test result documentation must be provided in English and must include the following information:

  • Your name, which should match the name on your travel documents
  • Your date of birth
  • The result of the test
  • The date the test sample was collected
  • The name of the test provider
  • Confirmation of the type of test provided

For guests unable to arrange a test within 72 hours of arriving to the terminal for cruises beginning in a non-U.S. port, Regent will have on-site Antigen testing available at the pier for a fee. PCR testing is not available at the pier. Please be advised that testing at the terminal may result in delayed embarkation. Guests who test positive at the pier before embarkation will be denied boarding, will likely be required to quarantine per local health and safety regulations and will be responsible for any quarantine or travel-related expenses incurred.

As a reminder, we ask that all guests adhere to their port arrival time selected during the Online Check-In process. Guests arriving outside of the designated arrival time may be requested to return during their port arrival time. Please arrive at your assigned port arrival time to help ensure a smooth and comfortable embarkation experience for all guests.

Testing Resources

Should guests require assistance finding a COVID-19 testing location prior to departing home or while traveling, please click here to visit the Test for Travel website.

Additionally, we have partnered with Inspire Diagnostics to provide hassle-free, online testing for our guests from the convenience of your home.

  • Please click here for more information.

2) Proof of Vaccination & Booster Requirements

All guests and crew must be fully vaccinated, at least 2 weeks prior to embarkation, in order to board the vessel. Guests will need to provide proof of vaccination as received at the time of your vaccination, therefore a photograph of a vaccination card is not sufficient. For more details on vaccinations and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, please click here .

For all sailings which include a Mediterranean port, per the EU Healthy Gateway’s current definition of “Fully Vaccinated”, any guest whose primary COVID-19 vaccination will be beyond 270 days at the time of disembarkation from their voyage must either:

  • Have a COVID-19 “booster” prior to embarkation, OR;
  • For European Citizens, an EU Green Pass or comparable certificate.
  • For all other guests unable to present an EU Green Pass, a doctor’s note PLUS a laboratory confirmed PCR test result with the proper information displayed (i.e. Name, Date, Date of Birth, Positive Result, Country of test, Certificate issuer, Date of Certificate Expiration).

Guests should ensure they receive their “booster” prior to travelling to the ship, or have an accepted Certificate of Recovery, or you will be unable to board. The “booster” is considered to be effective immediately, so it may be administered as late as the day of embarkation, though we strongly advise to have it completed in advance of your travels.

3) Face Coverings

Face coverings are now recommended but not required for guests except when the ship is in Greek or Italian ports. In these ports guests are still required to wear masks onboard while indoors, except for when actively eating, drinking, exercising or when in your suite.

In addition, local authority health and safety protocols require guests to carry FFP2/KN95 masks to visit Greek or Italian ports. Crew members are still required to wear masks in all public areas at all times.

4) Isolation and Quarantine Protocols

Guests will only be tested while on board if they report symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and it is deemed a medical necessity by the ship’s doctor, unless required to disembark due to local public health requirements. In the event that a guest tests positive for COVID-19 while on board, mandatory isolation protocols must be followed per the current local health and safety regulations. Guests who are deemed to have come into close contact with another guest who has tested positive for COVID-19 while on board, may also be subject to local isolation protocols.

Pre-Cruise Check List for Arrival Country and Embarkation Requirements

Before you begin your journey, please be sure to complete the below country specific health declarations at home and bring the completed documentation with you to the ship.

1) Spain Entry Requirements

Travelers no longer need to complete the Spanish SpTH Health Control Form if they have an EU DIGITAL COVID CERTIFICATE or EU EQUIVALENT of COVID-19 vaccination.

  • Click here to check the validity of your EU DIGITAL COVID CERTIFICATE or EU equivalent of COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Click here if you do not have the EU Digital COVID Certificate or EU equivalent, to complete the SpTH Health Control Form and receive your SpTH QR code to enter the country.

For more information visit https://www.spth.gob.es/ .

Throughout your journey there will be requirements to visit specific destinations. Below please find these destination specific requirements, which are subject to change.

Embarkation in Barcelona, Spain

What Happens If You Get COVID on a Cruise

barcelona cruise port covid testing

Are you curious about what happens if you test positive for COVID while on a cruise ? During my last few cruises, it has certainly weighed on me and is not something I would want first-hand experience with. Fortunately for you, reader, my new cruise friends Fain and Laura ( Travel Spree ) documented their COVID experience after Laura tested positive on their recent cruise on the Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas.

Getting COVID on Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas

So what exactly happens when you test positive for COVID on a cruise? I’ve broken down Travel Spree’s 23-minute video into chapters that will help answer any COVID cruise-related questions you might have. You can find the chapter list below the video.

COVID on Cruise Breakdown. What Happens Next?

  • 0:37 – Tests positive for COVID-19 after feeling chest congestion
  • 1:30 – Someone comes to move you to a different room and tests your travel companion
  • 1:48 – Guests services takes pictures of your passport and vaccination cards, as well as provides general info on the process of COVID lockdown
  • 2:26 – Fain explains the paperwork left by Guests Services that details what happens next
  • 3:30 – A little unsure what is happening next since they still haven’t come to test Fain or move them to a new room yet
  • 4:27 – Both get moved to the same room despite Fain not being tested for COVID
  • 5:10 –  Crew helps Fain & Laura with their bags as they get moved to the COVID floor, aka. Quarantine floor, aka. the 3rd floor
  • 5:24 –  They are escorted through the crew/freight elevator to avoid other guests
  • 6:22 –  They arrive in their new room, which is not an inside room. There’s a window, king-size bed, TV, etc
  • 6:38 –  They leave a disinfectant cleaner and red biohazard bags for all trash
  • 7:55 –  Room service in the quarantine rooms seems to be entirely complimentary
  • 10:00 – Their first room service order arrives individually wrapped
  • 12:56 – The crew does a welfare check to make sure everyone is ok
  • 14:10 –  The process begins for them to depart at Port Miami
  • 14:35 –  The to-go breakfast arrives, and Fain shows what’s inside
  • 15:50 –  Fain explains that if you have COVID on a cruise, you won’t be the first to depart
  • 16:22 –  Something I’m sure Royal Caribbean doesn’t want anyone to see is the hallway full of contaminated bags from all the COVID cruisers on the 3rd floor
  • 17:05 –  Those with COVID depart the ship from a different section of the boat
  • 17:24 – The crew are dressed in protective gear when checking COVID passengers off the ship
  • 18:08 – A car takes them to the car lot where they parked during the duration of their cruise
  • 18:38 –  Reporting live from ‘COVID Hell,’ Laura shares her experience after testing positive on Symphony of the Seas

Huge thanks to Travel Spree for sharing their COVID cruise story with the world. Though unfortunate, these are the stories that will help push the cruise industry even further with safety.

Cruise Ship Travel

CDC Respiratory Virus Guidance has been updated. The content of this page will be updated soon.

cruise ship sailing on ocean

While cruising is a popular way to travel, there are some health concerns to be aware of. Find out more about health issues on cruises and steps you can take to stay safe and healthy during your trip.

If you are feeling sick before your voyage, do not travel and ask your cruise line about rescheduling or reimbursement options. If you feel sick during your voyage, report your symptoms to the ship’s medical center and follow their recommendations.

Common Health Concerns During Cruise Travel and what You Can Do to Prevent Illness

  • Respiratory illnesses like influenza , COVID-19 , and the common cold. Get your annual flu shot and get up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines . Check directly with your cruise line about their COVID-19 testing or vaccination protocols before travel. If you have a weakened immune system , talk with your healthcare provider about your cruise travel plans. Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer . When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue to prevent spreading germs. Consider wearing a mask in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor areas.
  • Norovirus. Symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea, primarily caused by outbreaks of norovirus, have been reported. To prevent norovirus , wash your hands with soap and water before eating and after using the bathroom, changing diapers, or touching things that other people have touched, such as stair railings. Avoid touching your face. For more information, visit CDC’s  Vessel Sanitation Program  website.
  • Seasickness. Cruise ship passengers may experience seasickness or motion sickness. If you know you get seasick or think you may be likely to get seasick, talk to your healthcare provider about medicine to reduce your symptoms. Some common medications, including some antidepressants, painkillers, and birth control pills, can make seasickness worse.
  • Sunburns. Apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher when traveling. Protecting yourself from the sun isn’t just for tropical beaches—you can get a sunburn even if it’s cloudy or cold.
  • Bug bites. On your trip, use insect repellent and take other steps to avoid bug bites. Bugs, including mosquitoes and ticks, can spread diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Zika, dengue, chikungunya, and Lyme. Many ships visit ports where these diseases are a concern.

Before Your Trip

Check CDC’s destination pages for travel health information . Check CDC’s webpage for your destination to see what vaccines or medicines you may need and what diseases or health risks are a concern at your destination.

Make sure you are up to date with all of your routine vaccines . Routine vaccinations protect you from infectious diseases  that can spread quickly in groups of people. Outbreaks of chickenpox, influenza, and COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships.

Many diseases prevented by routine vaccination are not common in the United States but are still common in other countries. Crew members and fellow travelers often board a cruise ship from destinations where some diseases are more common than in the United States or where vaccination is not routine.

Make an appointment with your healthcare provider or a travel health specialist  that takes place at least one month before you leave. They can help you get destination-specific vaccines, medicines, and information. Discussing your health concerns, itinerary, and planned activities with your provider allows them to give more specific advice and recommendations.

Plan for the Unexpected

Prepare for any unexpected issues during your cruise ship travels with the following steps:

Prepare a  travel health kit  with items you may need, especially those items that may be difficult to find at your destination. Include your prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines in your travel health kit and take enough to last your entire trip, plus extra in case of travel delays. Depending on your destination you may also want to pack a mask ,  insect repellent , sunscreen (SPF15 or higher), aloe, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, water disinfection tablets, and your health insurance card.

Get travel insurance.  Find out if your health insurance covers medical care abroad. Travelers are usually responsible for paying hospital and other medical expenses out of pocket at most destinations. Make sure you have a plan to  get care overseas , in case you need it. Consider buying  additional insurance  that covers health care and emergency evacuation, especially if you will be traveling to remote areas.

If you need medical care abroad, see Getting Health Care During Travel .

After Travel

stethoscope

If you traveled and feel sick, particularly if you have a fever, talk to a healthcare provider and tell them about your travel. Avoid contact with other people while you are sick.

Do I need a COVID vaccine to cruise? A line-by-line guide

MSN has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. MSN and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with new information.

When the first cruises allowing Americans restarted in spring 2021, all major lines were sailing with at least 90% of passengers vaccinated against COVID-19. That meant they required just about everyone on board to have their shots, with only a few exceptions allowed for young children and people who can’t be vaccinated due to medical conditions or religious beliefs.

Since then, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has withdrawn its opt-in guidance for cruise lines, and most are now allowing unvaccinated passengers to sail. In fact, most aren’t even checking to see if cruisers are vaccinated or not.

However, with cases picking up seasonally and new booster vaccines rolling out, will you need a vaccine to cruise? Click on your favorite cruise line above, under “Jump to Section,” to find out.

For more cruise news, reviews and tips, sign up for TPG’s new cruise newsletter .

Note: In order to be considered “fully vaccinated,” passengers must have received their final shot (not including boosters) at least 15 days prior to embarkation. Most lines only accept vaccines (or a combination of vaccines) recognized and approved by the World Health Organization and the CDC. Generally, proof of inoculation must include your name, the type of vaccine you received and the dates on which you received all required doses.

Booster shots are not required unless specifically noted. However, keep in mind that the rules may vary by country, with some lines requiring boosters for international departures due to local regulations or for extra-long sailings like ocean crossings when port calls are few or nonexistent. Passengers who have their boosters are considered “up to date” rather than merely “fully vaccinated.”

For general information on testing, please refer to our article on cruise testing requirements .

AmaWaterways

Vaccine required no.

AmaWaterways no longer requires proof of vaccination for passengers. However, cruisers are responsible for meeting the requirements of the countries in which they’ll be traveling. If they do not, standard cancellation fees will apply. Pre-cruise testing is not required. Should passengers become ill during their cruise, AmaWaterways will assist in procuring testing and other medical services, which will be the financial responsibility of those guests.

American Cruise Lines

American Cruise Lines does not have a vaccine requirement for all passengers on any of its sailings. Pre-cruise testing is no longer required.

American Queen Voyages

Vaccines are not required to sail with American Queen Voyages , and pre-cruise testing is no longer required.

Atlas Ocean Voyages

Vaccination is not mandatory for Atlas cruises, but passengers must comply with regulations in countries on their scheduled itinerary, which could require that they be up to date on their shots. Additionally, pre-cruise testing is no longer a requirement.

Avalon Waterways

Avalon Waterways no longer requires proof of vaccination or a negative test prior to passenger boarding. However, mandatory testing and proof of vaccination could still be required in some countries the line visits.

Azamara recommends that passengers follow local regulations and the latest guidance from government health organizations when determining which vaccines to obtain prior to travel. The line also does not require negative test results in order to board unless mandated by local governments in the ports where the line’s ships sail.

Carnival Cruise Line

Neither vaccines nor pre-cruise testing is required for Carnival sailings. However, the line recommends that anyone 5 years or older be up to date on their shots and carry proof. It also suggests that cruisers test themselves no further than three days from their sailing date to make sure they’re in good health.

Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity does not mandate vaccination or testing for any passenger on any sailing unless required by regulations in the ports its ships are visiting.

Related: Cruise ship contact tracing: How the world’s major lines are tracking COVID-19 exposure

Celestyal Cruises

Celestyal continues to require all crew members to be fully vaccinated, but passengers don’t have to be. The line recommends anyone 12 and older be up to date on their inoculations. Testing is also no longer necessary in order to board Celestyal ships.

Cunard Line

Although Cunard suggests that travelers be fully vaccinated and current with their boosters, proof of immunization is not required, nor is pre-cruise testing for any of the line’s sailing unless required by law.

Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line encourages — but does not require — all passengers to be fully vaccinated before sailing. It also recommends pre-cruise testing, no more than two days prior to embarkation, for anyone who doesn’t have their shots.

Emerald Cruises

Emerald Cruises suggests that all passengers be vaccinated, but it no longer checks for proof. Pre-cruise testing is also no longer required, but the line advises travelers to check local regulations in the places they’ll be visiting.

Grand Circle Cruise Line

Vaccine required yes.

Grand Circle has mandated that all passengers must be fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to embarkation as a condition of carriage, and proof must be provided before boarding. Passengers who are not fully vaccinated will have to return home at their own expense. Boosters are not mandatory. Pre-cruise testing might be required, depending on your port of embarkation. (The line will send you that information prior to your sailing.)

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises

Hapag-Lloyd does not require vaccinations or pre-cruise testing as a condition of sailing. However, the line recommends both to passengers as precautions. It also advises that cruisers are responsible for knowing and adhering to all local guidelines and regulations.

Holland America

Holland America now allows unvaccinated passengers to sail and does not make pre-cruise testing compulsory unless either of these is required by local regulations in the areas its vessels sail. Booked cruisers can search for requirements specific to their individual sailings by using this tool .

Hurtigruten

Vaccine required sometimes.

On expedition cruises with Hurtigruten , passengers are not required to show proof of vaccination, except on 2023 and 2024 voyages to Antarctica and the Northwest Passage or West Africa sailings departing from and returning to Dakar. Immunization is also not necessary for the line’s non-expedition itineraries, but it is recommended for both coastal voyages and expedition cruises. Neither type of cruise requires negative test results as a condition of embarkation. Passengers with reservations can check specific protocols for their specific bookings using this tool .

Lindblad Expeditions

Lindblad passengers no longer need to provide proof of vaccination in order to cruise, and pre-cruise testing is no longer required, including at embarkation. Exceptions might apply for departures from certain destinations. The line urges passengers to follow government recommendations for masking, testing and vaccination.

Related: Why I feel safer now on a cruise ship than in my hometown

MSC Cruises

Vaccination and testing are no longer terms of carriage when sailing with MSC Cruises . The line still recommends that passengers receive their shots and notes that it’s each passenger’s responsibility to comply with local regulations in the places their sailing visits.

Norwegian Cruise Line

In early August 2022, Norwegian Cruise Line became the first major cruise line to roll back its vaccination requirements. Proof of immunization is no longer required, nor is testing in order to board for any voyage.

Oceania Cruises

Upscale cruise line Oceania does not check vaccination records for passengers, nor does it require pre-cruise testing for its sailings.

P&O Cruises

There are no vaccination or testing mandates in place for any of P&O Cruises ‘ voyages.

Ponant ‘s website simply reads, “when you visit certain destinations, vaccines can be recommended,” but they are not required by the line. Ponant also says it will alert passengers to their specific requirements after they have booked a voyage. Testing is also not needed in order to board.

Princess Cruises

Following an industry-wide rollback of protocols, Princess passengers no longer have to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine, nor proof of a negative test result, unless either is required by local regulations. Passengers are responsible for knowing the requirements for the places their ships will visit.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Regent doesn’t check the vaccination status of any of its passengers unless required by local protocols. Testing requirements vary by location and might depend on whether or not you are up to date on your shots. If vaccination or testing is required, the line will alert cruisers approximately 30 days prior to their sailing date.

Royal Caribbean

To board Royal Caribbean ships, you don’t have to be vaccinated or provide test results. However, the line advises staying up to date on inoculations and following guidelines issued by federal health authorities.

Saga has rolled back its vaccination and testing requirements, which is significant, given that the line only allows passengers 50 and older to sail on its vessels. They will only be required if local authorities dictate them.

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours

Passengers embarking on river and ocean voyages with Scenic will not need to be fully immunized prior to sailing. Testing is not required by the line but might be needed to enter the country in which you’re embarking on your sailing. Passengers are responsible for meeting entry requirements.

For cruises with luxury line Seabourn , there are no line-enforced regulations for vaccination or testing unless required by local authorities in the countries on which its vessels call. To see if your booked sailing requires either of these, check out the line’s search tool .

Luxury brand Silversea does not require shots for its passengers or pre-cruise tests unless they’re needed to meet local regulations.

Star Clippers

Star Clippers has eliminated all vaccine checks and testing protocols for all passengers on all voyages.

For all voyages through 2023, Tauck requires passengers 12 and older to be fully vaccinated and have at least one booster dose and/or show proof of recovery from COVID-19. Passengers 11 years old and younger are not required to be fully vaccinated. If they aren’t fully vaccinated or don’t have a booster, they must provide proof of a negative PCR or antigen test result from a test taken no more than three days prior to embarkation. For sailings in 2024, vaccination and testing requirements will be waived for all passengers.

UnCruise Adventures

All UnCruise passengers are exempt from vaccine and testing requirements. The line will continue to monitor the effects of new variants, as well as CDC recommendations and will adjust its policies accordingly.

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection

Testing requirements are determined by the countries the ships visit, but the line itself has no vaccine or testing mandates of its own. You can check the protocols for the places on your itinerary for the most up-to-date information by visiting the protocols page on Uniworld’s website .

All Viking passengers, whether on a river sailing or an ocean voyage, must be fully vaccinated for sailings departing on or before Oct. 31, 2023. It will not be required for cruisers embarking on or after Nov. 1, 2023. Testing is no longer required unless passengers are exhibiting symptoms and seek medical assistance.

Virgin Voyages

Virgin Voyages will not check proof of immunization or a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding.

EU DCC for non EU citizen? - Bailey (13 Jan 2022 - 11:58)

I’m an American citizen, but I have an EU digital covid certificate issued by France that I got last August for a different trip. Can I use that to apply for the SpTH pass? I read that the lines go quicker if you use that instead of a different proof of vaccination (like my US CDC vaccine card), but I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be a problem to use that if I’m not an EU citizen. In France, at least, it works exactly the same as any other EU digital covid certificate

I know I'm allowed into Spain from the US or another EU county, but I cannot figure out if I'm allowed in if I travel through Marrakech. If I am allowed in, will I have to quarantine? Do I need a COVID test? Can you please help? Thank you.

@Clare - Barcelona.com (9 Nov 2021 - 10:04)

Hello Clare, We believe this is just an additional piece of information requested as a precaution. You may be asked to take another test after you arrive in Spain. Fill out the form and you will see if you are asked for additional information. Normally all the explanations can be found on this site: https://travelsafe.spain.info/en/ But we did not find it. Have a good flight!

UK Track and trace - Clare (9 Nov 2021 - 09:56)

On the spanish health form it asks you if you have been in contact with a covid case in the last 14 days. If you say yes, you still get issued a QR code. If you have said yes, yet are fully vaccinated and have tested negative with a PCR test, will you be allowed into Spain?

@jean - Barcelona.com (4 Nov 2021 - 08:52)

Hola jean, The SpTH QR code only allows you to enter Spain, it does not replace the health pass or other digital EU covid certificate. best,

qr codes? - jean (4 Nov 2021 - 08:06)

hi! does anyone know if the SpTH QR code is enough to get you into bars/clubs? i don't think i will be successful in obtaining a digital EU covid certificate in time for my trip as i'm not a citizen of an EU country (i'm fully vaxxed from USA)

@Jonah - Barcelona.com (15 Oct 2021 - 08:38)

Hello Jonah, The rules changed this week for nightclubs ( more info Barcelona Coronavirus page). You shouldn't have any problem to get in. For the sanitary pass you have to ask your university best,

American obtaining Covid Pass - Jonah (15 Oct 2021 - 08:24)

Hello, I am an American study abroad student who is in Barcelona for three months. I am vaccinated but have been denied at some nightclubs and bars because I don't have the EU Covid Passport with the QR code. It seems impossible for Americans to obtain the covid passport, is there any way around this? I want to obtain the QR code so I don't have to get tested every single weekend to go out even though I am vaccinated. I have tried going to el CAP and they said they couldn't do anything. Thank You

@MS - Barcelona.com (11 Oct 2021 - 10:16)

Hello MS, Many people have mentioned this subject on this page. We think that if you have the documents proving your identity before your wedding - which is your case - there will be no problem entering Spain knowing that the controllers are now used to this issue. Have a good flight!

Vaccination card name - MS (9 Oct 2021 - 11:22)

Hello, We’re traveling from US to Barcelona next week. My vaccination card is with my married name but my passport and airline ticket is with my maiden name. Will I be allowed entry into Barcelona if I also bring my marriage license to show both names and also my old driver’s license with my married name in it? I’m very worried I’ll be denied entry on arrival, especially since we’re traveling with young children. Thank you for your help!

@Travey - Barcelona.com (8 Oct 2021 - 11:06)

Hello Travey, Getting a QR code via the SpTh website is a real nightmare, you are not the only one to complain about it. It often happens that the download is successful but the site does not specify it. The only solution is to go through the whole process again, begging your god ;-) on your knees like the penitents (which is less humiliating than using this governmental website). May the force be with you,

Travelling without the qr code - Travey (8 Oct 2021 - 10:34)

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I travel to Barcelona tomorrow from the Uk. I’ve tried to do the Spanish health travel form and somewhere I’ve messed up and verified something. I can’t get QR code as I keep getting a message saying A form can not be created the data already exists. I just don’t know what to do. Please can anyone help

Which test? - Samirah (24 Sep 2021 - 08:14)

I am flying to Spain from UK and am not fully vaccinated. I booked a rapid antigen test as I read on many sites including the Spanish government page that this is enough. However the Uk government and the company I fly with state I need to take a PCR and RAT tests aren’t allowed... I’m so confused and don’t want to be denied entry as my family live there and I’ve not seen them in so long

@Kat - Barcelona.com (2 Sep 2021 - 09:08)

Hello Kat, Your question is out of the scope of this page, we apologize for not being able to answer you. The best thing to do is to contact the relevant departments in Greece and Spain to be sure. Regards,

Visa/Residency - Kat (2 Sep 2021 - 08:48)

I recently renewed my visa and applied for a new residency card. I was supposed to receive the new card today but was told it will not be available for another two weeks. I am flying to Greece in less than two weeks and am worried that I will not be able to re-enter Spain without a valid residency card. I currently have my EU Vaccination Certificate, expired residency card, Resguardo de Solicitud (stating I applied for the new card in August and that my visa is valid until 2023), and passport, but I am not sure if that is sufficient. Is a valid residency card required in order to return from Greece even though it is part of the Schengen?

Ibiza Barcelona - Fiona1605 (30 Aug 2021 - 10:30)

How very confusing are the rules for internal travel within Spain. The Balearics government do require a health form to arrive in Ibiza from Barcelona I believe. I'm not sure about the other direction? Pffffff very difficult to find this information as each region creates its own rules.

@Chloe - Barcelona.com (27 Aug 2021 - 09:44)

Hello I am travelling to Spain from Ireland next week and am wondering if i will need a negative PCR or antigen test? I have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine however it will not be 2 weeks after the 2nd dose at time of travelling. I am curious if I will require a negative test to enter Spain as to be classified as fully vaccinated only takes 7 days with the Pfizer vaccine not 14 days like the other vaccines. Thanks

A guide to every major cruise line's health requirements for safe sailing.

barcelona cruise port covid testing

Cruise lines have shifted their requirements for passengers, making cruising accessible to practically everyone. Many popular cruise lines have eliminated the vaccine and pre-embarkation test as the industry is beginning to shift away from mandatory vaccines and testing.

The changes began shortly after the CDC ended a pandemic-era policy of publicly displaying COVID-19 cases onboard, different cruise lines to the public in July 2022. For those looking to check current COVID-19 trends onboard the CDC urges direct contact with the cruise line, and the organization will continue to monitor and offer guidelines to ships.
