The daily bulletin of Mallorca says people over the age of 18 must be fully vaccinated and can only enter within 270 days of their second bite, or if they have received a booster, or with a valid recovery certificate after beating the virus in the past Last 180 days.

The rules apply to anyone aged 12 or over, although Spain recently relaxed its rules so that unvaccinated teenagers aged 12 to 17 can be allowed entry provided they have a result negative PCR test carried out within 72 hours before their arrival.

Children under 12 are exempt from any testing and vaccination requirements. All travelers must also complete a pre-travel form and obtain a QR code to present at border control.

It should be noted that to be considered fully vaccinated, you must have completed your full vaccination program within 270 days (nine months) of travel, otherwise you will need a booster to qualify.
