Spain has relaxed its entrance requirements for UK tourists who have not been completely vaccinated against Covid-19, allowing them to enter based on a negative test result.
Tourists traveling from the United Kingdom must currently provide proof of a valid Covid-19 immunization certificate or a valid recovery certificate.
Non-fully vaccinated immigrants will be allowed to enter the nation starting Wednesday, 6th April, if they can show proof of a negative PCR test result for Covid-19 from up to 72 hours before departure or a negative antigen test result for Covid-19 from up to 24 hours prior to departure.
The revisions were announced in a Wednesday update from Spain’s Ministry of Health, and they arrive just in time for the Easter break. The new regulations apply throughout Spain, including the Canary and Balearic Islands.
The Foreign Office’s current advise for Spain, which has not been revised, is as follows: “Under the Spanish government’s current measures, you can only enter Spain from the UK for tourism purposes if you can show valid proof of meeting the vaccination requirements or a medical certificate certifying that you have recovered from Covid-19 in the past six months prior to travel.”
The Tourist Office of Spain in the United Kingdom confirmed: “Spain has updated its entry requirements and non-vaccinated UK passengers can now enter Spain with proof of a negative PCR or antigen test, or proof of diagnostic recovery.”
Visitors 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 to be considered fully immunized.
Except for teens aged 12 to 17, certification of a booster immunization is required if more than 270 days have passed since the last dose (inclusive).
When traveling with an adult, children under the age of 12 are exempt. This new rule applies to UK visitors aged 12 and above who are visiting Spain, including the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, prior to their arrival.
In addition, children under the age of 12 and those traveling to Spain with an EU Covid passport or similar (including an NHS Covid travel card) are no longer need to fill out the Health Control Form (FCS in Spanish) before arrival.
If you don’t have an EU Covid pass or an equivalent, you’ll need to fill out the Health Control Form to demonstrate proof of immunizations, a test certificate, or a certificate of recovery. This can be done through the Spain Travel Health website (SpTH).
