Huge change to Spain holiday rules for teens from TODAY – in boost for families with half term & Easter breaks

FROM today, kids no longer need to be vaccinated to enter Spain – in a huge boost to British families with half term holiday plans.

Spain has scrapped its strict Covid rule banning unvaccinated teens aged between 12 and 17.

Instead, kids under 18 who haven’t had both of their jabs will just have to have a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before arrival.

The last-minute change is a boost to Brits with plans to head abroad in half term and comes after months of holiday cancellations from Brits because of the rule.

Thousands of families were forced to cancel their trips as many kids in the UK are still yet to receive their second dose.

But the change has made holidays easier, and it isn’t the only rule that Spain scrapped in the past week.

Masks were previously enforced in a range of outdoor spaces, including at the beaches, on the promenade and at swimming pools – this is no longer in place, although some public transport and mass events still require them.

There are still Covid rules in place for any Brits planning on heading to Spain.

All adults must still be fully jabbed to enter Spain, and there is a time limit on when they received their second dose.

Spain is one of seven European hotspots that has put an expiration date on vaccine certificates, which could mean some Brits won’t be able to visit during half term if they haven’t had their booster jab.

Spain will only permit British adults to enter if they can prove they have been fully vaccinated against Covid within the last nine months.

This will be a problem for any Brits who received their second vaccine before mid-May 2021 and have not yet had their booster jab.

In other travel news, France and Finland have scrapped requirements for Brits to take a pre-departure PCR test.

They join a growing list of countries that Brits can visit without needing to take a single Covid test, after the UK ditched the need for fully vaccinated arrivals to take a test to return.

Arrivals to the UK only need to fill in a Passenger Locator Form when they enter, as long as they are fully vaccinated.

Vaccinated travellers only need to confirm their vaccination status, travel history and contact details.

These are the 33 countries Brits are still banned from due to Covid rules.
