What are Spain's Covid travel rules for UK holidaymakers?

Until recently only full vaccinated holidaymakers were allowed into the country but now unvaccinated travellers who have recently recovered from the virus are allowed to enter.

There have also been changes to the rules for unvaccinated 12-17 years old who can now fly to Spain with a negative PCR test result if they are accompanied by vaccinated adults.

You will also still need your pre-travel forms and QR codes at border control for the moment.

Don't forget that you need to have had your most recent vaccine within a 9-month course to be considered doubled jabbed.

Safe Spain, the country's official travel website says: "From February 1, 2022, in order to travel to Spain with a vaccination certificate, the certificate must have been issued by the competent authorities of the country of origin at least 14 days after the date of administration of the last dose of the full course of vaccination, as long as the final dose of that course of vaccination was no more than 270 days ago."

Spain is currently operating on a traffic light system that includes the Canary Islands.

Tenerife is currently in level three, while Gran Canaria is in level four meaning that there are still capacity limits in some bars and nightclubs.

Spain looks set to lift all of its restrictions, including facemasks, by June but we don't have a confirmed date yet.
