Hopes for Bank Holidays in Spain as final Covid restrictions are lifted this week, giving Brits a big boost

MORE of Spain’s Covid rules could be lifted this week – with a big change for Brits.

Unvaccinated Britons are currently unable to travel to Spain, but there is hope this could change by the end of the week.

While it was hoped this would fall in time for the May holidays, the government extended the Covid requirement until at least May 15, when it will be reassessed again.

The previous statement said: “This order will come into force from 22 July 2020, 12 p.m., until 15 May 2022, 12 p.m., without prejudice to its possible modification in order to take account of changed circumstances or new recommendations in the field of the European Union to react “.

But that could be overturned by Sunday if they decide against an extension – meaning Brits don’t have to have their jabs to visit the country.

The Spanish government has yet to confirm whether the measures will be extended or scrapped.

Currently, only unvaccinated people between the ages of 12 and 17 can enter the country with only a Covid test.

The UK government website states: “Under the current measures taken by the Spanish government, you will only be able to enter Spain from the UK for tourism purposes upon presentation of valid proof of compliance with the above vaccination requirements or a medical certificate that confirms you have recovered from COVID -19 in the last 6 months prior to travel.”

All arrivals must complete an online health check form to enter Spain as well.

It comes just weeks after Spain’s tourism board was forced to back down after claims unvaccinated Brits could return to holiday destinations.

However, there are many new rules for Spain that Brits will also have to follow.

New EU rules for the UK have banned food products, including meat and dairy, from entering the country since Brexit.

British passports are also required to have at least three months left in the passport, as a number of holidaymakers are caught at the airport and turned away.

Make sure you get your passport stamped too – one woman was banned from Spain for a mistake that made it appear she had overstayed.

And Britons heading to some of Spain’s party hotspots have also been warned they could face fines of up to £25,000 if caught attending illegal raves.

A crackdown on drunken Brits follows, which now means holidaymakers to Ibiza and Mallorca are limited to just six alcoholic drinks a day in their all-inclusive packages.
