Spain drops COVID travel restrictions

Brits travelling to Spain can enter the country without having to prove their Covid or vaccination status, after travel restrictions were dropped.

Before, people needed to show they were fully-vaccinated, provide a negative Covid test or prove they had recently recovered.

The drop in the remaining Covid restrictions comes as families prepare to head off on half-term holidays.

Travel agents said a “final hurdle” for holidays had been removed.

Other European destinations such as France, Italy and Greece lifted their rules prior to Spain, which is the most popular destination for UK overseas holidaymakers.

The Spanish Health Ministry announced that people entering from outside the European Union would no longer be subject to the controls.
