You may well have heard of various countries talking about citizens having a COVID passport for allowing safe travel potentially without having to isolate in quaranteen. Spain is one of a handful of countries (at the time of writing) that has implemented the issue of such certificates, they are available for free simply by using your SIP card to access them. This article explains how you can get your Covid passport certificate for yourself.
The certificate (as far as vaccinations is concerned) is valid for 365 days.
If you haven’t had your jabs yet, it is also possible to get a certificate to prove you have had a negative test in the last 48 hours. Dependent on the type of test you take, this certificate is valid for between 48 and 72 hours. I am assuming that you can only get this version of the certificate where you have used an approved or accredited provider and of course have had to show your SIP card. In fact, the testing centre may well issue you with this certificate.
If you have been unlucky enough to having contracted Covid having been diagnosed through a positive PCR test, then providing by day 11 of isolation you have recovered you can be issued with a certificate to say so, and this will be valid until 180 days later.
In some cases, individuals may have both recovered from Covid and had the vaccinations – the certificate is encoded in the Quick Response (QR) code that is printed on the certificate.
