The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has updated its ruled for travellers heading to Spain.
The new rules state that only those who are fully vaccinated are permitted to enter Spain unless they are travelling for an “essential purpose” as set out by the Spanish government.
The latest Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) lays out specific rules for those travelling to Spain from the UK.
The Spanish government now requires all UK and other non-EU citizens travelling from the UK for tourism to provide evidence of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days before arriving in Spain.
This must be “with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine”.
All adults and children over the age of 12 must meet this requirement.
Spain will accept the UK’s COVID-19 vaccination record.
The FCDO adds: “If you are travelling with a printed PDF proof of vaccination status, it must date from November 1 to ensure that the certificate can be scanned successfully.
“Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.”
All people travelling to Spain must complete and sign an online Health Control Form no more than 48 hours prior to arrival.
