I know the goal posts change daily but has anyone entered into Alicante Airport from Gatwick?

If so please can you give your wisdom as to how it went for you.

At this moment I am being told that you do not need to be vacinated, you dont need a test and that Spain just wants the British tourist, is this correct?

Maybe you are a traveler that has done this journey yourself, maybe you are an official that works in this industrie.

Either way I am sure your comments will be welcomed from all communites because there is much confusion for all concerned.

Are the Media reporting false information just to get the British tourist there, then are there hefty Testing fees fron the Airport Officials.

I am just trying to get a real account from people who have made this journey and can verify the true accounts of what is actually happening.

True and accountable information is hard to find these days so maybe this post can help not just myself but many other Brits who just want the truth.


Thank you in advance to any one with there valuble insights of their own exsperiences.

All you need to know

However, nobody can guarantee how any Spanish official will interpret rules/laws and procedures on any given day.

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!

Couple across the road from us (non residents) arrived at Alicante on Thursday. On landing, you had to show a completed health form (FCS) with a QR code. No need for vaccination certificates or covid tests.

The passengers were split into three lines, one for Spanish citizens and holders of TIE (according to the sign, it didn't mention the green registro form). The second line for other EU citizens and the third line for UK and other 3rd country non residents.

Only the third line for UK and 3rd country non resident travellers had to physically show the passport and get them stamped. The other two queues used the machines.

They were asked how long they were staying and where (even though that informatio was on the FCS form) and went through but it took them about 20 minutes to get through as the third line was by far the longest even though the flight was only just over half full.

I asked if the Brits in the first line were being asked for their TIE but he said he didn't know.
