Spain has changed its rules for unvaccinated British tourists, who must provide a negative COVID test to enter the mainland, the Balearics and the Canary Islands.

Previously, arrivals needed to take the test within 48 hours of their arrival.

However, an update to the Foreign Office travel advice suggests Spain has extended the testing period to within 72 hours of departure.

The new rule applies to everyone from the age of 12 unless they have proof they are fully vaccinated against COVID.

The test must be PCR or LAMP. Antigen tests are still not accepted, other than in certain limited circumstances.

The Balearic islands will be moved from the UK’s green travel list to amber on Monday, joining mainland Spain and the Canary Islands.
