New restrictions for travelers as of December 1
At this time of year, there is an increase in both tourist and business travel, as well as the movement of workers for the provision of technical assistance services throughout Europe. However, due to the new Covid-19 variant, omicron, the Spanish authorities are imposing new restrictions for travelers as of December 1.
As reported by the Spanish Government in the Official State Gazette (BOE), as of December 1, Spain will only allow entry to travelers from the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland with a full vaccination certificate. Negative Covid tests will not be admitted, nor will certificates of having overcome the disease, as has been done in recent months.
Due to the health crisis caused by the pandemic, the Ministry of the Interior has again modified the restrictive measures for non-essential travel from third countries to the EU and Schengen zone countries, which means a new setback for tourism.
The appearance of new variants of the disease-causing agent means that travel restrictions must now be increased.
The resolution, however, removes some countries that are not considered high risk such as: Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Jordan, Kuwait, Namibia, New Zealand, Peru, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay and China.
