Information about PCR test to enter Spain
From 23rd November 2020 all passengers who come from a high-risk country in relation to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, in order to enter Spain, MUST show a certificate with a NEGATIVE PCR result (RT-PCR of COVID-19), carried out in the 72h prior to your arrival. You can consult the list of risk countries in this link.
This certificate or supporting document must be the original, will be written in Spanish and / or English and may be presented in paper or electronic format.
The document will contain, at least, the following information: traveler's name, passport or ID number, date of the test, identification and contact details of the center that performs the analysis, technique used and negative test result.
The personal identification number (passport / DNI) that you used to get your QR must be the same as the one that appears on the negative PCR certificate.
A perimeter lockdown in the Valencian Comunity has been declared for a period of seven days, starting today. Only travelling within the Valencian provinces and municipalities is allowed.
After the state of emergency has been declared in Spain, which affects its whole national territory, the following restrictions are to be applied within the Valencian Community:
08/06/2020Teaching in the first semester will be blended (part of the classes and practices will take place in person and part virtually). The final exams will be face-to-face. This requires the physical mobility of international students.
In order to limit the spread and contagion of the Covid-19, exceptional measures have been taken so that, from this moment, all the uninitiated exchange programs for the staff and students at the University of Alicante are cancelled (according to RESOLUTION March 12th, 2020, of the Department of Universal Health and Public Health).
Instructions for mobilities already started:
Regarding students who are abroad and are going to continue there, in the event that the destination university has enabled online teaching, in case of closure, they can follow this methodology.
If the decision is to return to Spain, they should contact their Faculty / EPS and request a curricular adaptation to continue studies at the UA or follow the online program of their destination university.
Due to the extraordinary situation caused by COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Alicante decided the following:
1. Continuing the online tuition for the rest of 2019-20 academic year.
2. Doing the assessments by online methods.
The digital transcript of records of your students will be sent by e-mail late June; and the students will be able to download them through UACloud. All digital ToR include a verification code and a website where they can be verified as authentic.
If they return to their country of origin by imposition of their authorities, or by their own decision, we understand that in this case it is the university of origin that must provide its students with a plan to continue their studies. In any case, the UA can contribute to the extent of its possibilities in case they want to continue teaching online and sending, where appropriate, the evaluation tests to their university.
If they decide to stay in Alicante and continue studying at the UA, they will be able to receive online teaching, as far as possible, just like the rest of the students at this university.
Before making a decision, it is recommended to contact the home or destination university to find out the forecast of the situation.
We advise to follow at all times the indications, instructions and recommendations of:
1. The local authorities of the country of origin
2. The home university and the University of Alicante
3. Those of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation (MAUC), which can be found at the following link:
If it was not done at the time, we suggest registering in the Travelers Registry of the Embasy of the origin country in Spain or in its App, and that you always have on hand the 24-hour telephone number of the Embasy and the assistance telephone number of the insurance policy.
