Spain holidays: Spain extends Covid restrictions for unvaccinated British tourists

TravelSpain holidays: Spain extends Covid restrictions for unvaccinated British tourists


Spain has extended its tough Covid restrictions for another two weeks. The restrictions will now last until at least May 15.

British tourists travelling to Spain will need to be fully vaccinated unless they have a recent recovery certificate.

If their second jab was more than 270 days ago, they will need to have a booster jab to travel.

British teenagers aged between 12-17 can travel to Spain with a negative PCR test if they are unvaccinated.

The tough rules have disappointed some British tourists who have been unable to travel to Spain this year.

It was thought that Spain might relax its border restrictions this month ahead of the busy summer holiday period.

However, the tough rules have remained in place and unvaccinated Britons will not be able to travel to Spain with a negative test result.

Spain now has some of Europe’s strictest rules for British tourists. Greece ditched its border rules on May 1.

Britons can now travel to Greece without facing any restrictions even if they are unvaccinated.

DON’T MISS

British tourists holidaying in some areas of the Spanish Balearic islands will have to adapt to some new rules.

Some areas including Magaluf have tightened drinking restrictions to ban all-you-can-drink deals and boozy bar crawls.

Booze cruises are also restricted while Thomas Cook has introduced a six drink maximum for its guests.

The Spanish islands are aiming to change their reputation as a party destination and encourage more quality tourism.
