Spain lifts restrictions from Monday on the arrival of British tourists – british government still advises against travel to spain

Tourists from safe countries such as United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea may enter without health controls.

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has announced at Fitur conference that from this Monday 24th May 2021, Spain will lift the health controls for tourists arriving from countries included in the Spanish green list and those considered “safe”, including the United Kingdom, the main tourism market for the Valencian Community. The Government’s decision means that from next Monday British tourists will be able to enter Spain without providing a negative COVID test.

Sánchez has made this announcement during the presentation of the covid certificate that will come into force on July 1 and explained that in addition to European countries, the government has decided to open the door to other countries where the vaccination campaign is well advanced and the incidence of the virus very low.

In addition, from June 7th, any tourist who proves that they have received the complete schedule of the coronavirus vaccine will be able to enter Spain without undergoing PCR controls from June 7th.

Although British tourists are not required to present a PCR at Spain’s airports, they are still subject to following the amber list rules. This includes two home PCR tests and quarantine.
