The long weekend of December is almost here, and the country is preparing to record millions of internal trips.
Faced with the alarms caused by the increase in the incidence of Covid-19 and the new Omicron variant, the governments of the Spanish regions protect their territories from the pandemic with measures such as requesting the vaccination passport to enter restaurants, events and entertainment venues.
Regions such as Galicia, Aragon, the Balearic Islands, Murcia, Catalonia, the Valencian Community, Navarra and the Basque Country already have the endorsement of their corresponding Superior Courts of Justice to impose the health passport in their territories.
Other regions such as the Canary Islands are awaiting the decision of the judges, while there are territories where the measure is under study by the regional authorities.
This is, as of today, the map and the current situation in the different Spanish autonomous territories.
From November 25, people over 12 years of age must present the Covid passport at nightclubs and celebrations of all kinds that may take place in hotel and restaurant establishments, as well as at mass events.
In October, the Superior Court of Justice of the Balearic Islands authorized the Government to request the vaccination certificate to access nightlife venues and to visit family and friends in nursing homes. At the moment this order will be in force until 8 December.
Local authorities are planning to extend the requirement to restaurants with more than 50 capacity places, nightclubs and other places where celebrations of more than fifty people can take place.
On Tuesday 30 November, the Justice authorized the Basque government's decision to require the Covid passport for entry into restaurants and nightlife establishments in the region.
The health passport will be mandatory to access bars, restaurants, gyms, cinemas, theaters, auditoriums, commercial galleries and nursing homes in Catalonia from Friday 3 December for all those who are 13 years old or more.
The Superior Court of Justice of the region also authorized the introduction of the vaccination passport.
From Friday 3 December it will be mandatory to enter hotel, restaurant and leisure venues with a capacity of more than 50 people. It will also be necessary to go to mass events and celebrations with more than 500 attendees, and to visit people in hospitals and nursing homes.
The Superior Court of Justice of Galicia authorized the local authorities to demand from 27 November the vaccination certificate to people over 12 years of age to access the hotel and hospitality establishments.
In cafes and bars it will only be mandatory after 9:00 p.m. The measure will be in effect until 18 December.
Until 17 December it will be mandatory to present the vaccination certificate in the premises that reach 100% of their capacity.
The vaccination passport is in force in Navarra for restaurants with more than 60 diners, discos, nightclubs and mass events in interior spaces where the consumption of food or drink is allowed and with more than 1,000 people.
This measure will be in effect until 7 January.
Regions that have not yet made a decision
Andalusia and Castilla y León have not yet decided if they will impose the vaccination passport to limit the entrances to leisure and entertainment venues.
The Andalusian government is expected to decide on the measure on Friday 3 December.
