British teenagers that are unvaccinated will be allowed into Spain today with a negative PCR test. Spanish tourism minister Fernando Valdés recently announced.
Everyone aged over 12 has to be double-jabbed to enter the country or provide a negative PCR test within 72 hours of arrival, although some families had already decided to cancel their plans for half-term holidays to Spain because their children had not yet had their second jab. If more than 270 days have passed since vaccination, proof of a booster jab is also required.
People aged 18 and over must still be vaccinated to be allowed to enter, Spain admits that the UK is the main market for tourism, and easing the restrictions between both countries was most important.
It is mandatory to complete a Spanish health control form prior to traveling, a QR code is then downloaded which passengers have to show upon departure.
The UK has now scrapped its coronavirus testing for fully vaccinated travelers from last week, and now has the first open border in Europe which the government says they are sending a clear message that they are open for business.
Travel companies and businesses in Spain look forward to the future and now had the news that they have been hoping for.
