The certificate put online by the Ministry of the Interior is "compulsory for all trips between 23 p.m. and 6 a.m. throughout the metropolitan territory". This document works to justify travel during the curfew which will be lifted on Sunday, June 20.
Since the beginning of May, the restrictive measures put in place by the Spanish government have been gradually easing. It is thus no longer necessary to present a travel certificate during the day, including for travel beyond a radius of 10 km. Nevertheless, this declaration remains essential in the evening sincea curfew remains in place, but has been moved from 19 p.m. to 21 p.m. and then 23 p.m. throughout mainland Spain. If you are forced to travel between 23 p.m. and 6 a.m., you will still need to bring a certificate.

What is the travel certificate for and what are the reasons for travel?
To mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the government has decided to take measures to avoid overloading health establishments. These operate in just-in-time mode and fear that they will no longer be able to accommodate all the sick.
The curfew is thus intended to be a slightly less drastic measure than the confinements to which the Spaniards have already had to comply. The effectiveness of such a policy is debated, but the current objective is to be able to allow the population to slowly resume a normal life while keeping tools to monitor the spread of the virus.
During the curfew, certain trips remain authorized, provided you have a certificate and for the following reasons:
- Professional activity, education and training, mission of general interest;
- Health (consultation and care);
- Compelling family reasons, assistance to vulnerable people, childcare, disability;
- Judicial or administrative summons;
- Long-distance travel (transfers, transits from train stations and airports);
- Traveling to walk a pet.
Is the travel certificate compulsory?
Yes, the certificate is mandatory during the curfew. This derogatory travel certificate is for single use only. It must be dated, signed and with the time of leaving the residence to be mentioned at the bottom of the document in the space indicated. Finally, it is personal.
What is the risk of leaving without certification?
If you leave without an exit certificate or without a valid reason, you risk a fine: at least 135 euros in the event of an inspection (increased to 375 euros in the event of non-payment or non-contestation within the period indicated on the notice of contravention), 200 euros in the event of the first recidivism within 15 days. If you have a disability, you can use the derogatory travel certificate in simplified Spanish (FALC).
- First penalty: a fine of 135 euros, increased to 375 euros (in the event of non-payment or non-dispute within the time limit indicated on the notice of violation)
- In the event of a repeat offense within 15 days: a fine of 200 euros, increased to 450 euros (in the event of non-payment or non-contestation within the period indicated on the notice of contravention)
- After 3 offenses in 30 days: a fine of 3750 euros punishable by 6 months' imprisonment.
