Spain extends Covid entry restrictions to May 15

Spain has extended its Covid rules until May 15, meaning most unvaccinated adults are still banned from entering.

The Ministry of the Interior made the announcement in the Spanish Gazette, stating it would extend an order which was first imposed in July 2020.

The order read: “This order will take effect from 12.00pm on July 22, 2020, until 12.00pm on May 15, 2022, without prejudice to its eventual modification to respond to a change in circumstances or new recommendations in the field of the European Union.”

Unvaccinated travellers aged 18 and over can only enter Spain by showing proof of recovery from Covid within the six months before travel.

Children aged between 12 and 17 can enter with proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before arriving in Spain, while under-12s are exempt from all travel restrictions.

Vaccinated adults can enter by showing proof of vaccination within the last 270 days, or proof they have had their booster jab.

The rule extension makes Spain one of few European countries to maintain such strict Covid regulations, although, last month, Spain relaxed its indoor face mask policy, so people no longer need to wear a face covering in bars, restaurants, shops and cinemas.
