Travelling from the UK to Spain
31 December 2020 was the end of the transitional period provided for in the agreement on the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.
From 1 January 2021, all passengers on flights from the UK will be required to carry a passport. It will be compulsory to stamp the passport and to answer a series of control questions asked by the National Police.
Pets must have a valid microchip and rabies vaccination. As far as documentation is concerned, the EU passport will no longer be valid, but a health certificate will be required. Pets from Northern Ireland are not covered by these requirements as they are considered to be intra-community.
The luggage of passengers arriving in Spain from the United Kingdom is subject to customs control on arrival and the Guardia Civil may carry out physical checks on the luggage.
There are restrictions on animal and plant products in the European Union to prevent the entry of pathogens and diseases. With regard to plant products, it should be noted that the entry into the European Union of plants from third countries is prohibited without a phytosanitary certificate (seeds, plants, fruit, vegetables, flowers, etc.).
Regarding products of animal origin (meat, milk and meat products, fish products, etc.), their introduction into the European Union is prohibited. Meat, milk and meat products and milk from the United Kingdom are prohibited in all cases
Exceptions: Powdered infant milk, infant food and special foods required for medical reasons provided that their combined weight does not exceed 2 kg per person, that they do not require refrigeration before consumption, that they are packaged proprietary products and that their packaging is intact, unless they are in use.
