UK tourists going to Spain will need a negative PCR test or proof of vaccination from Friday.

Last Thursday, the Baleric Islands received good news.  The Islands were added to the UK’s travel green list


Today Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said what we will do is apply to British tourists who go to Spain the same requirements we make of other European citizens.


“They will need a full dose of vaccine completed at least 14 days prior to arrival or a negative PCR test at least 72 hours prior to arrival, he added, referring to a type of test for the coronavirus.


Sánchez justified the measure because the data coming from the United Kingdom are worrying because they have infections well above 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, which is why he has influenced the need to apply measures additional in our country.


The new restrictions would be published in the Official State Gazette (BOE) on Tuesday, and come into force 72 hours after that on Friday.


Prior to today’s decision UK visitors did not need to show proof of vaccination or take a Covid test.
