SPAIN has extended the existing entry ban on non-essential travel by non-vaccinated travels from a long list of non-EU countries for another month.
The Interior Ministry published the decision to extend the ban that was introduced on July 17 in Spain’s Official State Gazette (BOE) on Monday.
The ban will now last until the end of November unless is extended again.
Under the rules, unvaccinated travellers from all countries outside the EU that do not appear on the ‘safe list’ will not be allowed to enter Spain unless they have an approved reason to travel.
Those exempt from the ban must have valid proof that they are fully vaccinated with an EU approved vaccine that was administered at least 14 days before entry.
The safe list now includes the following countries:
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- South Korea
- United Arab Emirates
- Hong Kong SAR
- Macao SAR
- Double standards: Fully-vaxxed Brit expats arriving in UK from Spain discover they don’t have the same quarantine exemptions
- COVID rules: Fully-vaxxed travellers from Spain to UK can now use cheaper lateral flow tests instead of PCR
