Spain has updated its entry requirements for arrivals from the UK.
From 1 December, all travellers arriving into Spain from the United Kingdom – including Northern Ireland – must show proof of vaccination against Covid-19.
The decision comes as concerns mount over the spread of the new Omicron variant.
Currently, UK arrivals are able to enter Spain with either a vaccine certificate or a negative Covid test.
From Wednesday, however, only a vaccine certificate will be accepted for entry, and the holder must have both doses of a registered vaccine (or a single dose of a one-dose vaccine) at least 14 days before travel.
In a statement, Turespaña said: “Spain reinforces its position as a safe holiday destination with one of the highest vaccinations rates worldwide (almost 90 per cent of the population age 12 and over) and one of the lowest Covid-19 rates in Europe.”
The new rules apply to the whole of Spain and its territories, including the Balearic and Canary islands.
