Me and my wife are suppose to be flying out to Alicante in one week time.

We are so confused regarding PCR testing getting into Spain and back to the UK.

I know Spain are amber currently but we both had our jabs and feel safe as we only socialise in the local walking club in Alicante only.

Appreciate any accurate information.

I did call my local pharmacy in the UK and the conversation started with I need a test to then a decision at the end saying we do not need any tests entering Spain.

Confused to say the least.

Requirements on travelling Uk to Spain at this moment in time

1. No test required to enter Spain from Uk

2. No more than 72 hrs before returning to Uk you must be tested in Spain (Uk currently accepting antigen test which is roughly €40)

3. You must also book two PCR tests before travelling back to be taken on Day 2 and Day 8 of your return (these can be booked on gov website and approx £120 for both tests per person) details of these tests must be input on your passenger locator form before travelling so you can’t avoid this

4. You must isolate for 10 days upon arrival in Uk (you can buy an additional test to be released early on Day 5 but again is roughly £60 but not available in all parts of Uk e.g Nortgetn Ireland)

All this info based on current Uk guidelines and on assumption Spain is still Amber when returning to Uk 

Hope this helps

Deirdre
