Spain dumps COVID-19 travel restrictions

From today (21 October, 2022), non-EU travellers will now no longer have to provide proof of vaccination or testing upon entry into Spain after authorities scrapped COVID-19 restrictions.


Spain was the last EU country with such travel restrictions still in place.



Spanish authorities said that the restrictions that had been in place for over two years were no longer necessary given “Spain’s and the world’s epidemiological situation and with the aim of favouring the normalisation of international mobility”.


Luxembourg lifted its remaining travel restrictions in late September. France in August, Portugal in July, and Italy and Germany did so in June, The Local ES reported.


Travellers to Spain are still required to wear a face mask on public transport, including planes. Masks are no longer required in airports, ports or train stations.
