Spain holiday boost as more Covid restrictions scrapped next month | The Sun

BRITS heading to Spain have been given a welcome boost as the country scraps more Covid restrictions.

Travellers will no longer be required to have temperature and visual checks at the airport on arrival.

Holidaymakers travelling to Spain faced having the additional checks, with anyone reporting a high temperature forced to take a Covid test.

However, these restrictions are to be scrapped from next month, local media reports, although the Health Ministry is yet to officially confirm this.

According to El Peridico, the restrictions will be scrapped from October 20.

It's not the only Covid restriction being scrapped for Brits heading to Spain.

Since last week, health control forms are no longer required from holidaymakers.

The Spanish Ministry of Health posted on Facebook: "It will no longer be necessary to complete the health check form to travel to Spain or present the QR code of SpTH (Spain Travel Health) at the airport on arrival."

However, holidaymakers have been warned that Covid rules will remain in place until at least November.

Spain is one of the few European holiday destinations which still requires Brits to be fully vaccinated or have a Covid test to enter.

This means having both jabs, with the second no more than 270 days old, or with the third booster.

If you are not vaccinated, then you have to have a negative Covid test, either a PCR taken within 72 hours of departure or an antigen test, taken within 24 hours of departure. 

A Covid recovery certificate is also accepted.

Face masks are still required on planes too.
