Spain ends isolation and testing Covid restrictions

Another hurdle has been removed for travellers as Spain axed another Covid rule this week. The country no longer requires travellers to isolate or undergo testing if they have mild coronavirus symptoms. It becomes one of the first EU countries to make the move.

It's worth noting that there are still entry requirements for UK travellers in place.

Fully vaccinated Brits can visit Spain for holidays, without needing to test or quarantine. For those who are unvaccinated, you'll need to be able to show proof of recovery from Covid if you want to visit for tourism.

The rules apply to anyone aged 12 or over, so originally this proved problematic for families wanting to visit with unvaccinated teens aged 12-17. However, Spain subsequently changed its rules to allow teens aged 12-17 to visit, provided they have a negative PCR test result and are travelling with vaccinated adults.

Anyone travelling to Spain, regardless of vaccination status, will also be required to fill out a pre-travel form and obtain a QR code to show at border control.

Face masks remain mandatory in all indoor public spaces.
