Spain has reinstated COVID vaccination and testing requirements for all passengers arriving from China.

Travellers from China will also be required to undergo visual and temperature checks on arrival.

They might also be subjected to a COVID test at the point of entry, but children under 12 are exempt, as are passengers in transit for 24 hours or less.

These requirements do not apply to travellers to Spain from Hong Kong.

For all other passengers, Spain does not require any proof of vaccination, a negative test result, or a COVID-19 recovery certificate to enter the country.

France has also re-introduced the requirement for arrivals from China to provide a negative COVID test, taken less than 48 hours before departure. It will also randomly test arrivals.

The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice to include the latest changes for Spain and France.
