Travel from France to the UK via Spain

Post by alan »

Thanks for the recent guidance. I am hoping to fly into and out of Carcassonne next week but it is possible that I may return to the UK from Barcelona later in June when I find out the condition our second home is in and when there are few if any Ryanair flights from the PO. I have a British passport and my main residence is in the UK, I have had two vaccinations a few weeks ago. I won't be spending any time in Spain just travelling by train or bus to the airport. Can anyone who has done this or is planning to, confirm that I will need to complete the FCS form electronically and advise on anything else needed.

Thanks Kate. These experiences are interesting but I'm still uncertain whether strictly, I need a QR code prior to entering Spain from France by road or rail en route to the UK from Barcelona airport. There must be a clear statement somewhere but I can't find it. I suppose there is no-one generally to check as distinct from when you arrive into Spain by air or sea.

I've had another search and have just found this:

Question
QR code and form for entry to Spain - Cecilia (7 Jun 2021 - 08:30)
Hi
We will be entering Spain by car from France, we live in Switzerland and are both fully vaccinated. When we try to fill in the entry form a flight number is essential to complete the form. Is there a different form for driving into Spain. Thanks

Hello Cecilia,
The QR code is only required for travelers arriving in Spain by plane and by boat.
best,

I'd prefer to see some Spanish Government document but this will have to do.
