Christmas will be chaotic. The plan outlined by Health on December 3, whose laxity was denounced since its announcement, has turned out to be “minimal” in practice. The autonomous communities have been forced to take the reins and harden the initial plan on their own. However, there are still many unknowns not only about the controls that will have to be overcome in each autonomous community, but also in relation to the documentation that will be required of the citizen.
New model in six communities
For now, Madrid, Navarra, Aragon, Catalonia, The Rioja and Basque Country They have anticipated the rest of the autonomous communities and will ask for a kind of safe conduct that they have called “Responsible Declaration Model”, which can be downloaded from the previous links.

Other Spanish communities are still studying the possibility of requesting the family book to prove that they are part of the family nucleus or attach an invitation letter.
C. Valenciana: prove the registration
The Valencian CommunityFor its part, it is one of the communities with the most drastic measures for these holidays, having one of the worst contagion figures in the entire country. The Executive of Ximo Puig prohibits the entry of relatives and friends who do not have their habitual residence in the region and limits the maximum number of people in social and family gatherings to six. The measures will come into effect this Monday, December 21 and will remain in force until at least January 15.

If the proof of the test is not available, visitors will be subjected to the test that is considered most appropriate at the same airport.
Try in Galicia if you come from a place of risk
In Galicia can request a diagnostic test who comes from a region with high epidemiological incidence, in addition to that all students arriving from abroad must do it. In the case of Asturias, all persons between the ages of 18 and 30 who return to the Principality and who are going to live with people over 65 or people at risk must pass the PCR test.
As ABC has already said, the Ministry of the Interior has not sent an instruction in this regard to the Security Forces and Corps. The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has limited himself to appealing to “citizen responsibility.” Although at the beginning of December he already affirmed that the Executive “will take the pertinent controls to ensure that the measures are fulfilled”, the only concretions come from the autonomous communities.
