Spain has extended its COVID entry restrictions until 15 May, even though some of its EU neighbours – including Greece and Croatia – have removed them altogether.

In a statement from the Ministry of Interior, published in the official Spanish Gazette BOE, it said restrictions first imposed on 22 July 2020 will remain in place until noon on 15 May.

It means that Brits aged 18 and over remain banned from Spain unless they are fully vaccinated or they’ve recently recovered from COVID.

Children between the age of 12 and 17 can enter with a negative PCR test. Under 12s are exempt from the travel restrictions. Everyone else must also complete Spain’s Travel Health Control form within 48 hours of travel, unless they have been fully vaccinated or recently recovered from COVID.

Spain has recently lifted its mask rule, so they no longer have to be worn in all indoor and outdoor public areas, but they are still required on public transport and in some healthcare settings.
