A statement from the Home Office on the restrictions reads: “This order will take effect from 12:00 p.m. on July 22, 2020, until 12:00 p.m. on May 15, 2022, without prejudice to its possible modification. to respond to a change in circumstances or to new recommendations in the field of the European Union”.

It is expected that after May 19, travelers not vaccinated against the virus will be allowed to enter the country without having to provide proof of recovery, although the Spanish government has not yet confirmed this.

Currently, people over the age of 18 who have not received a covid vaccine can enter Spain if they show evidence of recovery from the virus within six months of travel.

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 can enter with proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival in the country, while those under 12 are exempt from all travel restrictions.
