Spain is the latest country to announce it is to open for British travellers, with the country set to reopen its borders to the UK on Monday.
However, the picture for the moment isn’t as simple as it would first make out. Of course, the advice from the UK hasn’t changed, the whole of Spain remains on the ‘Amber List’, which means home quarantine when returning, testing before departure and then again on days 2 and 8 (with the possibilty of a test and release on day 5). The Canary Islands however, has seen the FCDO advise for ‘advising against all but essential travel’ has been removed, which is an important element for travel insurance.
The Spanish Government has confirmed that to travel to Spain there is no requirement for a test before arriving, and you won’t need to reconfirm your vaccination status either. This is execpt for the Canary Islands, where a PCR test is needed within 72 of arrival.
We’re expecting the next update to the ‘lists’ in the next 10 days (ish), which could bring a number of other countries onto the ‘Green List’.
