In a bid to boost tourism Spain relaxed its Covid restrictions to British travelers, those entering the country will no longer have to quarantine or take a Covid test. However, Spain is still on the UK’s amber list so what does this mean for British holiday makers?
All travelers to Spain from the UK will no longer need to quarantine or take a Covid test, but they will be required to complete a pre-declaration travel form upon arrival.
Despite travel restrictions being eased in Spain, if you travel to the country you will have to self-isolate at home for 10 days and take two Covid tests on days two and day eight after arriving back in the UK.
While it is no longer illegal to travel to Spain, the UK government has warned against visiting amber destinations for non-essential trips.
The ‘traffic light’ travel system set out by the government ranks countries either green, amber or red depending on how safe they are to visit.
There may still be hope for a holiday in the sun as the traffic light system is reviewed every three weeks.
As long as Covid cases continue to fall in Spain it could be put on the green list in the coming weeks or months meaning that holidays to the land of Sun, Sea and Sangria will be allowed once more.
