Health and safety

Brazil, Chile, Peru, Paraguay, and Venezuela have bilateral agreements with Spain that allow tourists from these countries to receive free medical attention in case of emergency due to illness or accident. For this, the certificate corresponding to your country must have been issued. You can view the bilateral agreements on the Social Security website of Spain.

In the event of an emergency dial 112 free of charge (valid throughout Spain). This service is provided in Spanish, and in touristic areas also in English, French and German. For more travel tips in Spain, click here.
