*Travel updates for the UK and Spain*
In response to the identification of a new COVID variant, both the UK and Spanish Governments have announced some changes to entry requirements for travellers.
Yesterday, the Spanish Government published a change to the rules on entry to Spain from the UK. From 00:00 on Wednesday 1 December, proof of being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine) at least 14 days prior to arrival will be required to enter Spain for all travellers over the age of 12. A negative COVID test alone will no longer allow entry. There are some exemptions, including for residents of Spain and children under 12. For more information please visit https://www.gov.uk/foreign…/spain/entry-requirements… and do sign up for alerts, so you are kept up to date with the latest information.
The UK Prime Minister has also announced a change to the requirements for entering the UK. From 04:00 on Tuesday 30 December, all international arrivals will have to take a PCR test before the end of Day 2 and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
