Spain has lifted all of its Covid travel restrictions for holidaymakers with immediate effect.

The decision will come as positive news for Brits as many will be free to travel to one of the most popular tourist destinations worldwide without the fear of fulfilling Covid requirements.

In its official bulletin, the Spanish government confirmed the new rules.

Given the drop in cases, the travel restrictions were no longer necessary according to them.

In a midnight update, the UK Government confirmed the changes in restrictions today.

It said: "From 21 October 2022, all Covid travel restrictions for travellers to Spain have been lifted."

The rules that previously applied to travellers coming to Spain no longer apply. Here's an update:

  • You are no longer required to show proof of being fully vaccinated.
  • You are no longer required to show proof of a negative Covid test.
  • You are no longer required to show proof of having recovered from Covid in the last six months.
  • You are no longer required to complete a health control form prior to travel.

The restriction changes come after Spain last month opted to remove the necessity for a health declaration form to be presented on arrival to Spain.

Despite this, the country kept its Covid travel restrictions in place.

During the pandemic, Brits hoping to travel to Spain would often find their plans hindered by restrictive measures enforced by the British and Spanish Governments.
