Spain extends Covid entry rules until June 15

Spain has extended its Covid entry rules for non-essential travel another month, meaning unvaccinated adults are still banned from entering the country.

All international visitors will remain subject to Spain’s Covid rules until June 15, after the Ministry of Interior of Spain announced an extension of the restrictions which were initially due to be lifted on May 15.

The statement reads: “The border order to be issued by the Minister for Home Affairs extends all current restrictions on Spain’s external land, sea and air borders under the recommendations of the Council of the European Union due to the health crisis caused by Covid until 24.00 hours on June 15, 2022, and replaces the current one, which expires on Sunday, May 15.”

The extension means unvaccinated travellers aged 18 and over can still only enter Spain by showing prof of recovery from Covid within the six months prior to travel.

Unvaccinated children aged between 12 and 17 can enter Spain by showing proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival, while under-12s are exempt from testing rules.

Vaccinated adults can enter by showing evidence of vaccination within the last 270 days, or proof they have received a booster jab.

While the extension of Covid restrictions continues to make Spain one of the few European countries to maintain such strict regulations, the country has relaxed its indoor face mask policy, which means people do not need to wear masks in bars, restaurants, shops and cinemas.
