A rule change has come in for UK travellers from Wednesday December 1, which requires anyone over the age of 12 to be double vaccinated if they want to enter Spain.

As reported by Which? if you have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arriving in Spain, you’ll need to be able to prove it.

The entry rules are the same for the whole country, whether you’re visiting the Canaries, Mallorca, Ibiza or mainland Spain.

English holidaymakers visiting Spain can use the NHS Covid Pass app to provide evidence of the date of their vaccinations.

To ensure success when preparing to fly out it is advised to print out the required QR code or save it in your phone's photos or documents folder

Previously some travellers have missed their flights when the Covid Pass app stopped working, leaving them with no means of proving when they received their vaccinations.

If you don’t have a smartphone, you can also access your vaccine status online, or request proof in letter form. 

Aside from proving your vaccination status you will also need to complete and sign an online Health Control Form, no more than 48 hours prior to travel, declaring any known history of Covid exposure.
