Holidays to Spain are back on for unvaccinated Britons, following the Spanish Government’s decision to overhaul its coronavirus§12 entry rules. Spanish tourism minister, Reyes Maroto, has declared a “new phase of the pandemic” meaning Spain can relax its rules.
The FCDO stated: “At least 11 days must have passed since your first positive COVID-19 nucleic acid amplification test – NAAT (PCR or similar) or rapid antigen test.
“The recovery record or certificate will be valid for 180 days from the date of the positive test.”
Covid recovery documents must include your full name, the date you first tested positive for COVID-19, the type of test administered (e.g. COVID-19 nucleic acid amplification test – NAAT [PCR or similar] or rapid antigen test), the name of the country issuing the recovery record or certificate and documentary proof of the diagnostic test from which the recovery certificate is derived.
Although Spain has removed the need to complete a Travel Health Control Form for those who are fully vaccinated, those who have not received their vaccines must still fill out this form.
The form must be completed no more than 48 hours before arriving in Spain.
However, children under the age of 12 do not need to show proof of being fully vaccinated, a negative test or a prior infection before travelling to Spain.
They are also exempt from competing a Health Control Form.
