Spanish authorities have confirmed that UK holidaymakers can visit Spain without the need to quarantine or present a negative PCR test from next Monday, May 24th.
British nationals will be able to visit Spain for non-essential reasons such as holidays, but will have to factor in that Spain is currently on the UK’s amber list for travel, which requires 10 days of quarantine upon return and three PCR tests.
The announcement was published this morning in the country’s official state bulletin, which suggested that Spain’s decision may soon be followed by a similar one by the European Union, in terms of confirming whether Britons will be able to travel to EU countries for non-essential reasons and without restrictions.
Spain will also allow all vaccinated travellers – regardless of their country of origin – to visit from June 7th, as the country aims to revive its virus-battered tourism industry.
Pedro Sanchez made the announcement this morning at an international tourism fair in Madrid, and also confirmed that from Monday, British – and Japanese – travellers will be allowed in “without restriction”, but he didn’t specify whether they would have to show a negative Covid test. They will be required to fill out a Health Control Form.
