Spain to welcome UK tourists from next week without quarantine

British holidaymakers will be able to travel to Spain without needing to quarantine from next week.

The Spanish government has added the UK to its list of countries whose residents do not need to self-isolate upon arrival, following in Portugal’s footsteps.

Officials announced this morning that the changes will come into effect from Monday May 24.

No updates have yet been made to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) travel advice page but it continues to advise against all but essential travel to Spain including the Balearic Islands but excluding the Canaries.

Spain is currently on the UK government’s ‘amber list’, meaning Britons must self-isolate for 10 days when they return and take two Covid tests during that time.

Outlining the decision, the Spanish government said the country receives a high number of British tourists every year and urged all to prepare for the changes that will soon take effect at the borders.

Japan was also added to the list today, joining Northern Ireland, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and China.
