FCDO advises against all but essential travel to Spain, excluding the Canary Islands
21 May 2021
Latest update:
New information on changes to entry requirements for Spain if you are travelling from the UK from 24 May onwards. No changes have been made to the level of our travel advice for any regions of Spain. We continue to advise against all but essential travel to Spain, including the Balearic Islands, but excluding the Canary Islands.


Quote:From 00:00 on 24 May, current entry restrictions (listed below) and testing requirements for arrivals from the UK to Spain will no longer apply. However, travellers from the UK should be prepared to present evidence of a negative test if they have travelled to a country on Spain’s list of ‘risk countries’ in the 14 days prior to travel.

Great news for us, non residents. Although, am I the only one worried about scrapping the need to be tested to enter Spain?

I think it's a dreadful decision, although Spain looks like it is requiring evidence of full vaccination for entry 7th June onwards. That helps, but my understanding was that the vac helps the individual but doesn't prevent COVID being carried and passed on! Would be very happy to he proved wrong!

That's another thing I'm not happy about -vaccine passports. Vaccinated people can still bring the virus into the country and potentially endanger its residents. Having a negative test results should be considered as a much safer alternative, IMHO. Let's see what will they come up with in a couple of weeks.
