The Foreign Office has updated its advice to Spain after the country relaxed entry rules to allow unvaccinated British visitors.

The FDCO now says: “If you are traveling to Spain for tourism you must show valid proof of one of the following:

  • being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine) at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain (date(s) of vaccination must be specified).
  • a negative COVID-19 test: either a PCR taken within 72 hours prior to departure, or an antigen test taken within 24 hours prior to departure.
  • having recovered from COVID-19 in the last 6 months. You can also use a medical certificate or recovery record to prove your COVID-19 status on entry to Spain.

“There are some different entry requirements for children under 12 years old. See ‘Children and young people’

“Travellers from the UK who can either show proof of being fully vaccinated, or of having recovered from prior COVID-19 infection in the last 6 months, or who are aged under 12 years old, do not need to complete Spain’s Travel Health Control form.

“Everyone else must complete Spain’s Travel Health Control form no more than 48 hours before travel to Spain.”

The FDCO adds visitors may be subject to additional checks such as temperature check or testing on arrival.
