Hi, does anyone know what the latest rules are for non vaxxed British citizens living in the UK travelling to Spain? I have not had Covid yet.

I keep getting conflicting information online.

Thanks for your help.

What are the current rules for unvaccinated travellers?Recovered from Covid-19

Adults who have recovered from coronavirus within the last six months can enter Spain for any reason.

You can use the UK proof of Covid-19 recovery record or a recovery certificate issued by a relevant health authority or medical service.

At least 11 days must have passed since your first positive nucleic acid amplification test – NAAT (PCR or similar) or rapid antigen test. The recovery record or certificate will be valid for 180 days from the date of the positive test and must include the following information:

  • your full name
  • the date you first tested positive
  • the type of test administered
  • the name of the country issuing the recovery record or certificate
  • documentary proof of the diagnostic test from which the Recovery Certificate is derived

Travellers using proof of recovery to enter Spain need not test or quarantine, but are still required to fill in Spain’s online Health Control Form.

Not recovered from Covid-19

British adults who are not fully vaccinated and cannot show a valid proof of recovery can only enter Spain for “essential” reasons – not for tourism.

Hi James,  the information from Nigel is spot on as I understand it too - if you’re not vaxxed or not recovered in the last 6 months and you are a UK national you can’t enter for tourism and only for one of the reasons deemed by the Spanish government. I see where you find the conflicting advice as I have been through everything and if you get in to the “.EU” European Union websites they say that there should be no discrimination against the unvaccinated. So they are allowing European unvaccinated tourists with a negative PCR but not the Brits, even though we have reciprocal agreements. It’s very frustrating. We booked tickets a couple of weeks back when Spain lifted the unvaxxed restriction, for them to only advise they had made a mistake and re-applied the restriction 8 hours later. This has left us with Ryanair tickets that we either cancel completely or have to spend £180 total changing the flights. We have property in Spain and we are trying to apply for an NLV but their consulate is on strike too!!  We can’t win any way but which 🤷🏼‍♀️  
Just hoping they amend the ruling soon. It is being reviewed again, I believe, at the end of April.

Thank you so much for your replies, I really appreciate it. 

As I am not fully vaccinated and have not had covid I guess I'll just have to wait until the rules change. Very frustrating.

Thanks again 

James
