Spain shuts its doors to unvaccinated Brits in summer holiday U-turn

SPAIN has closed its doors to unvaccinated holidaymakers from Britain just hours after announcing it would open up in a dramatic U-turn.  

The Spanish tourist board in London announced yesterday (April 6) that all UK travellers were welcome, even if they weren’t vaccinated against Covid-19.

But the decision was quickly reversed in a blow to some tourists who will now still have to show proof of being fully vaccinated.

The board’s deputy director says the announcement was a “miscommunication” caused by a “misinterpretation of the rules”. 

UK passengers aged 12 and above are still required to show proof of being fully jabbed or a certificate of recovery from COVID, dated no more than 180 days previously.

The only exception applies to those aged 12 to 17, who are able to enter Spain unvaccinated provided they have proof of a negative, approved PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. 

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

For jabbed travellers, the tourist office said: “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.”
