Unvaccinated British teenagers will be allowed into Spain from Monday 14 Feb 2022 with a negative PCR test

Unvaccinated British teenagers will be allowed into Spain from Monday with a negative PCR test, Spanish tourism minister Fernando Valdés has told the BBC.

At the moment everyone over 12 has to be double-jabbed to enter the country.

Some families had already cancelled half term holidays to Spain and the Canary Islands because their children had not yet had their second jab.

People aged 18 and over must still be vaccinated to get into the country.

What Covid tests do I still need to travel abroad?

Mr Valdés said that 12-to-17 year-olds who have not been vaccinated against Covid will be allowed into the country from Monday 14 February, if they present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival to Spain.

The restrictions will be lifted from 23:00 GMT on 13 February.

"Great Britain is our main market," said Mr Valdés. "We've been always very keen in easing the restrictions between both countries."

All other UK travellers, excluding children under 12, will need to present a Covid certificate showing proof of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days before arrival in Spain.

If more than 270 days have passed since vaccination, proof of a booster jab is also required.

Prior to travelling, air passengers have to show a QR code, which they get by filling in a Spanish health control form.

The announcement comes after many UK families cancelled half-term trips to mainland Spain and the Canary Islands due to the jab restrictions.

Hoteliers in the islands said the restrictions had lost them millions of pounds' worth of trade.

However, hundreds of thousands of people are embarking on half-term winter sun and ski trips, according to industry body Abta.

Is this just British teenagers?   What if residents fly to Uk for holidays?   Is it still a requirement. Does anyone know?

At the moment adults have to be double jabbed but I feel it's inevitable they'll revert back to the PCR test and eventually none at all. Especially as Turkey seem to taking up the slack.

If you are a Spanish resident and not double jabbed, you can return to Spain. with a test.

As a Spanish resident you would also need a test to return if you hadn’t received a booster jab and your  EUDCC had expired because your full dose (1/1 or 2/2)  was longer than 270 days ago
