Travel to and from Spain: What you need to know in light of the new regional border restrictions

The closure of regional borders has left many expats confused about travel into and out of Spain from affected regions, so here is everything you need to know.

Can I travel abroad?

Technically, yes. As reported by ABC on Thursday, October 29, if you are coming from an area with a closed perimeter, you may only travel abroad for work or health reasons. For example, if Madrid is closed, a Madrilenian can only travel to Barajas and cross the border into a third country if the trip is justified and provided that that country has its borders open to Spain.

Similarly, if you are travelling from a region without restrictions, but the flight leaves from a confined area, you will be free to travel, since “passengers in transit will not be affected” by the restrictions, according to Aena.

Residents of the municipalities affected by the travel restrictions may only leave their regions for essential reasons, such as for work purposes or to care for a dependent person.

If in doubt, contact your local authorities before travelling for the latest information in your region.
