Requirements for travel to the United States and Canada 2022
On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be mandatory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.
For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.
New requirements for travel to Spain
If you are going to travel within the national territory, please consult the information provided by the Autonomous Communities regarding their requirements to the traveler through the following

At present, there are no countries that are required to take additional measures to those already mentioned. In the event that the epidemiological situation in a country/territory or zone worsens to an alarming degree, exceptional health control measures may be applied to passengers arriving from such countries/zones.
CHANGES in the requirements for travel to Spain 2022
Visiting Times Square, falling in love with the charms of the natural parks or touring the mythical Route 66 are just some of the charms that may lead you to visit the U.S. However, if you are going to ‘cross the pond’ you should know that to visit the United States you will need certain procedures and documentation, whatever the reason for your trip.
Do I need a visa, what does the ESTA application consist of, do I need to bring my passport? Resolving these questions is essential if you plan to travel to the U.S., among other things, because if you do not do so you may not comply with some of the requirements for travel and, consequently, you may be surprised to find yourself stranded on the ground.
Every trip requires prior preparation but when it comes to setting foot in the United States, the bureaucracy, paperwork and the succession of forms to complete all the documentation that is part of the requirements to travel to the country can be overwhelming.
With the proper information, successfully completing the process is not that complicated. In addition, there are certain issues that, while not mandatory requirements for travel to the United States, are highly recommended:
