COVID19 social measures in Mallorca
Currently, travelers arriving from domestic, EU or Schengen associated destinations (you can consult them here) andforeign travelers arriving from countries that do not belong to the European Union or do not have the status of Schengen associated countries are not required to present the COVID19 passport and do not have to fill in any forms.
Instead, from January 2023, all passengers arriving by air to Spain from the Republic of China (except for children under 12 years of age, passengers in international transit and crew):
- They must present an EU digital COVID certificate or equivalent, a negative certificate of a diagnostic test for active infection or a certificate of recovery after having passed this disease.
- On arrival at the airports of the Balearic Islands, a diagnostic test for active infection may be carried out and, if deemed necessary, a medical assessment will be performed in which the epidemiological and clinical aspects of the passenger will be evaluated.
With the remission of the sixth wave of the COVID19, in April 2022 the Government of the Balearic Islands decided to remove the requirement of the use of the face mask to access the interiors of the restaurants, nightlife, cultural and sporting events.
Even so, in Mallorca there are still certain social measures in place to control the transmission of the virus:
- The use of face masks is mandatory when using public transport and for access to hospitals, health centers, some pharmacies and nursing homes.
- The safety distance of at least one and a half meters must be maintained indoors.
- In case of not being able to maintain the safety distance, the use of a mask is recommended.
- Smoking is forbidden on the terraces of bars and restaurants.
