Wondering if anyone has flown recently from UK to Spain and what, if any, proof of tests are required once I land.  I am aware I need proof vaccine certificates and also have to complete Health Control Form.  Is that it?  Thank you

We flew into Alicante last Saturday, just needed to show completed Spanish Health form with QR code and have proof on vaccination status at UK check-in. In Alicante they only looked at Spanish Health form QR code (after border control).

After the QR code check in arrivals there is a device that checks the temperature of people walking past, could be that you showed up as having a high temperature?

In fairness it does say on the form you could be subject to a test on arrival, I’ve been travelling in and out of Spain every 10 days since June and that was the first time,.

We returned from Manchester last week and before we disembarked from the aircraft all passengers were subjected to a random check of their passenger locator form which it seems everyone had completed although there wasn't a great deal of scrutiny it has to be said. The forms were checked again near baggage collection and my husband was asked to produce his covid vaccination certificate too. When we completed the Spanish locator forms as residents it appeared to validate our covid certificates 😮 but not sure if that's the case or not. No checks at Manchester again though.

I will be travelling to Spain shortly and have checked the rules. You are correct. you will get your QR code when you complete your Location form. You will not need to have a Covid test unless you are contacted within the first 48 hours of arriving in Spain.
