As we all know, borders in the whole wide world have been closed until further notice since the pandemic started ―some were only open for essential workers. But with the summer season ahead of us (in the European continent at least) and a vaccination program working full time, Spain is now betting for national tourism.
Alongside other EU countries, Spain was letting EU non-essential travellers in, without the need of a quarantine period. The good news now is that since yesterday there will be no restrictions to UK and Japanese travellers either.
That is to say: if you are coming from the EU’s Schengen travel zone, from the UK or Japan, you are welcome to enjoy your holidays in Spain. Other countries that join Europe’s safe list are Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand. That means EU travellers can safely visit these countries and citizens from those countries can visit Europe as well.
Other non-EU nations are still under the restriction of essential travel only.
Although British travellers won’t need to do a mandatory quarantine when arriving in Spain, they will need to stay ten days in isolation back home. They will nevertheless be submitted to a health inspection that will require them to fill an information form, to do a temperature check and a visual check.
Once you are in Spain, you will be able to enjoy its beautiful cities and relaxing beaches, but remember the pandemic isn’t over yet and you still need to take some precautions. Masks, for example, are still mandatory in outdoor public places and you should always take your sanitizer anywhere you go.
