Spain plans to open up to unvaccinated tourists from countries outside the EU as soon as possible. As the Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, said, “in a matter of days.”
According to the minister, tourists from third countries who have not been vaccinated with WHO-approved drugs will only need a PCR test done a maximum of 72 hours before travel, or an antigen no older than 24 hours, to enter Spain.
In addition, the Spanish authorities plan to replace vaccination certificates upon entry with negative tests for COVID-19.
Recall that in May, the Spanish authorities extended the current restrictions for visitors from third countries until June 15. Entry for tourism purposes is possible only with vaccinations, EMA, or WHO-approved drugs.
