Spain has relaxed its entry rules, so that unvaccinated UK tourists can now visit as long as they show evidence of a negative Covid test or proof of recovery.
They can show a PCR result, with the test taken within 72 hours of departure, or a rapid test within 24 hours.
It applies to travellers over the age of 12 and means holidaymakers can enter with a certificate of vaccination; or proof of a negative test; or proof of recovery.
Julia Lo Bue-Said, chief executive of the Advantage Travel Partnership, tweeted about the change, which comes into force on Wednesday (April 6), saying it is a “step in the right direction”.

To count as fully vaccinated, visitors must have received both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain.
If more than 270 days have passed since the final dose, certification of a booster vaccination is also required, except for teenagers aged 12 to 17 (inclusive).
Children under 12 years old are exempt when travelling with an adult.
