Spain in major vaccination change for travellers planning Easter hols

Spain has made a major change for holidaymakers which could affect people’s Easter holiday plans. The country has announced that only vaccinated Brits or those who can show proof of recovery from Covid can enter Spain.

The new rules will be in place until April 30 meaning many people’s holiday plans could be affected. Only unvaccinated people who cannot show that they had Covid within the last six months are still not permitted to enter.

Local media have reported that the Ministry of Health has extended the rules until the end of this month. And that means that many people might not be able to go away.

Spain was expected to relax the entry requirement at the end of March, which would have come as a boost to unvaccinated Brits with plans to visit Spain during the Easter holidays however it appears this has been scrapped.

Kids aged between 12 and 17 who haven’t had both of their jabs can enter by showing proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arriving in Spain. Spain is also one of several European holiday destinations that has placed an expiration date on vaccines.

To enter, you must be able to prove you were fully vaccinated against Covid within the last 270 days. If you received your second dose more than nine months ago, you must have had a booster jab to be allowed in.
