Hi - does anyone know the Covid test requirements for flying to U.K. from Spain?  I am looking to visit but someone mentioned you need a test in Spain before travel, 2 tests while in U.K. and a test in U.K. before departure?

Seems a bit excessive to me?

Thanks

Bob

You need one to get in the UK.  
Then on day 2 and day 8 of the 10 day quarantine.  Along with filling out the passenger locator form, so they can contact you or check up on you when you’re there. 
Then you need one within 72 hours of flying back to Spain. 

Does possibly seem excessive.  But it’s the only way to make sure you are not carrying the virus with you.  

Also.  If the person you are visiting is not in your support bubble.  You wouldn’t be allowed in their home.  Possibly from May with the easing of the current lock down rules.   Maybe best to wait till June! 😁 cheaper and less hassle then.
