However the staff of your airline might check you have all your COVID-19 travel documentation for UK before you board the plane and the Authorities of UK will check you have all your COVID-19 travel documentation when you arrive to UK so we strongly recommend you check the entry restrictions, the COVID-19 travel documentation and the COVID-19 test requirements for UK in advance and that you have all the required travel documents required before heading to Barcelona Airport to take your flight for UK

If you need an antigen or PCR test travel certificate to travel to UK you can easily get tested in Barcelona. It is worth getting tested in the city centre rather than the airport to ensure you have your documentation in plenty of time before your flight. It also means you don’t have to arrive too early at Barcelona Airport and you are not feeling rushed to get your test certificates on time. Sometimes there is a minor error or detail that needs to be corrected on the Fit To Fly certificate and you need enough time to be able to check your certificate details are 100% correct.
