Barcelona coronavirus COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions

Barcelona Ramblas Coronavirus Covid-19
Barcelona, September 20th

After long months in slow motion, Barcelona vibrant activity has restarted.
The municipality took advantage of the epidemic to reorganize the city: more areas for pedestrians and cyclists, streets closed to traffic on weekends, to create a more pleasant and friendly environment.

Actual restrictions:


Restrictions imposed to curb the epidemic have virtually all been eliminated. It is just required to wear a mask in certain places and in taxis and public transport.

More detailed statistics of the hospitalizations and the evolution of covid cases in Barcelona available on the Catalan government information website.

Arrival formalities:


From September 20th, all travelers, whatever their origin, can freely enter Spain without the need to present a vaccination certificate or PCR test.
All controls at borders, ports and airports have been eliminated.

Hygienic mask:


Wearing a mask is only compulsory in pharmacies, hospital services, retirement homes and public transport, including taxis, from the age of 6.
