A new rule has come into force in Spain today, which reduces vaccination validity to 270 days.

This means visitors from the UK with vaccination certificates older than 270 days will only be considered fully vaccinated if they have had a booster more than 14 days before travel.  

Before today’s rule change, people were considered fully vaccinated if they had received the second of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of the single-dose vaccine at least 14 days before travel.

Under 12s don’t need to show proof of being fully vaccinated.

People travelling to Spain for tourism purposes cannot use the UK proof of COVID-19 recovery record certifying recovery from COVID-19 in the last six months, the Foreign Office says.

The new rule applies for the whole of the country, including Spain’s islands.

A spokeswoman for the Spanish Tourist Office in the UK said agents and visitors should check the country’s Travel Safe website before travelling as autonomous regions are also able to set their own guidelines.
