Spain U-turn on unvaccinated Brits

Thursday, 07 Apr, 2022 0

Spain has abruptly reversed an announcement allowing entry to unvaccinated UK visitors.

Just yesterday the Spanish tourist board in London said it is opening up to unvaccinated British nationals with a negative pre-departure test.

But just hours later, the hopes of unvaxxed Brits were dashed.

It apologised for an error in interpreting the official state bulletin.

“We apologise unreservedly for the miscommunication which was due to a misunderstanding of the new entry requirements,” said Pedro Medina, deputy director of the Spanish tourist office in the UK.

All travellers 12 and over must still present proof of full vaccination or show a recovery certificate.

“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,” the tourist board reiterated.

Pre-Covid Spain welcomed an average 50,000 Brits per day.
