Spain reverses easing of entry requirements for unvaccinated travellers


Spanish authorities have confirmed they are not changing the rules after it was understood that they were easing entry requirements for British travellers who are not fully vaccinated.

The country has been criticised during the pandemic for strict travel rules but as much of the world opens up, the Spanish Government has started to relax their entry requirement regarding those who are not fully jagged.

You can enter Spain, the Canary Islands or Balearics if you have proof of being fully vaccinated or had proof of Covid recovery. Those aged 12-17 can also provide a negative PCR test.

After it was reported that unvaccinated travellers could enter with a Covid test, it has since been announced that the Spanish Government admitted that there was a ‘misinterpretation error’ on their bulletin.

To qualify as fully vaccinated, travellers must have received both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain unless it’s been over 270 days since the last dose – in that case a booster vaccination is required.

Anyone under the age of 12 are exempt from Covid travel rules.

All travellers must complete a Health Control Form and a QR code proving either vaccine certificate, Covid test result or proof of Covid recovery.
