Spain holiday boost as more travel restrictions scrapped for Brits | The Sun

BRITS heading to Spain have been given a welcome boost as more Covid restrictions have been scrapped.

Tourists will no longer need to fill in a health form to enter Spain, with the new rules in place from today.

The Spanish Ministry of Health posted on Facebook: "It will no longer be necessary to complete the health check form to travel to Spain or present the QR code of SpTH (Spain Travel Health) at the airport on arrival."

However, holidaymakers have been warned that Covid rules will remain in place until at least November.

Spain is one of the few European holiday destinations which still requires Brits to be fully vaccinated or have a Covid test to enter.

This means having both jabs, with the second no more than 270 days old, or with the third booster.

If you are not vaccinated, then you have to have a negative Covid test, either a PCR taken within 72 hours of departure or an antigen test, taken within 24 hours of departure. 

A Covid recovery certificate is also accepted.

The rules show no sign of being lifted, with them being enforced until November 15.

Brits also need to have at least three months left on their passport to enter Spain.
