Spain Changing Travel Rules For British People; Booster Jab Required


Travellers from the UK staying in Spain on holidays will need to be aware of the new entry rules coming into effect in February.

The current requirement for entry to Spain from the UK is that you have been fully vaccinated, which implies that your vaccine has been received at least 14 days ago.

From February 1, the date of your last dose will become even more significant if you’re planning a trip to Spain. The reason is that under the new rules, your final dose must have been given within 270 days (roughly nine months) of your arrival in your holiday destination.

In cases where your vaccination course is outside of this – i.e. you received your dose more than nine months ago – you will also need to provide proof of a booster vaccination.

The new rules will apply to all passengers over the age of 12.

For non-essential travel, such as holidays, you won’t be allowed into Spain if you are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated. Spain also won’t accept UK proof of Covid recovery. Consequently, unvaccinated children and teens older than 12 will not be able to go on holidays, including during the February half-term.

Anyone over the age of 12 must also submit an online form 48 hours before travel, along with proof of vaccination.

Spain is currently one of the countries open to UK travellers alongside the likes of France, Spain, Turkey, the USA and more.
