Tourists from non-EU countries including the UK can now travel to Murcia and other Spanish destinations without any COVID-19 travel restrictions.
The Spanish government has lifted restrictions for all travellers (effective from 21 October), ending rules that had still applied to “third-country” citizens from outside the European Union and Schengen partner countries.
According to latest information on the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s travel advice website, travellers are no longer required to show proof of being fully vaccinated, of a negative COVID-19 test or of having recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months.
The requirement to complete a health control form prior to travel was previously dropped in September, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers.
The government has, however, decided to maintain its requirement for people to wear face masks when using all public transport services, including on flights in Spain.
Mandatory mask use will reportedly remain in force indefinitely for buses, trains, metros, taxis, and aircraft, at least until March 2023 when emergency health authorities are expected to review these measures after monitoring the situation over winter.
