On October 25, the Spanish government declared a nationwide state of emergency, which includes a nationwide night curfew.
The Foreign Office has issued an important update for British tourists who want to travel to Spain.
The entry regulations have changed
The Canary Islands are currently exempt from the curfew due to the latest epidemiological data.
It also gives regional governments the legal authority to impose further mobility restrictions in their region if deemed necessary.
The situation is evolving and further measures to contain the virus could be introduced nationwide in the short term.
These measures are expected to remain in force for an initial period of at least 15 days.
Travellers entering Spain from the United Kingdom do not need to isolate themselves on arrival.
In response to the stricter measures, the Foreign Office has now clarified the entry requirements for travel to Spain.
However, they will be subject to the following three requirements:
Spain reported almost 20,000 new cases and 231 additional deaths every day last Friday, bringing the total number of people killed in the pandemic in Spain to 34,752.
Anyone who shows symptoms or fails to meet any of the above requirements will be examined by a health professional.
