Anyone 12 years of age or older who received a second dose more than nine months ago must have a third booster shot to be allowed to participate.

The booster must be given more than 14 days before departure.

Children under 12 years of age do not need to present proof of complete immunization when entering Spain

The new requirement could cause problems for Britons, who have not been boosted and hope to visit Spain in half a term.

Brits must be fully vaccinated and now cannot use a negative Covid test or proof of recovery to enter.

Many children aged 12 to 17 are still not fully immunized – meaning they have no other way to be allowed into the country, even if they have proof of recovery.

This rule will prevent many families from moving to Spain during the midterm break.

Unvaccinated Britons are now finding it very difficult to enter Spain – you can only travel from the UK for tourism purposes if you are fully vaccinated.

Unvaccinated visitors 12 years of age and older are only allowed entry if their reason for coming to Spain falls into one of the categories listed as ‘necessary’ in the ‘Entry Requirements for Entry to Spain’ Houses from third countries’ – part ‘a’ to ‘i’ – on ‘Tourism and COVID-19’ page of the Spanish Ministry of Health.

Reasons include working as a healthcare or air transport professional, studying as a student or those traveling for urgent family reasons, among others.

If you are unvaccinated and qualify for an exemption, you must provide proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours prior to arrival in Spain, or an antigen test performed within 24 hours hours before arrival.

Alternatively, you may provide a medical certificate confirming that you have recovered from COVID-19 up to six months prior to travel.

Meanwhile, we’ve rounded five holiday hotspots where you’ll be banned for half a term if you don’t have a booster.

And the islands in Spain have issued warnings like Britons face fines of up to £50,000 for drunken behavior due to an alcohol crackdown.
