On Wednesday the Spanish tourist board in London announced that Spain will welcome all British holidaymakers, however they have now reversed this decision and anyone who is unvaccinated are now banned from entering the country.

The Spanish tourist board’s deputy director said the initial announcement was a “miscommunication” which was created by the “misinterpretation of the rules” laid out in a Spanish health department bulletin.

British holidaymakers aged 12-years old and above will have to show evidence that they are full vaccinated or a certificate that they have recovered after being infected with Covid which must be dated no more that 180 days previously.

Pedro Medina, deputy director of the Spanish tourist office in London said, “We apologise unreservedly for the miscommunication earlier today which was due to a misunderstanding of the new entry requirements.”

For fully vaccinated holidaymakers, the tourist office said, “If more than 270 days have passed since the final dose, certification of a booster vaccination is also required, except for teenagers aged 12 to 17 inclusive.”
