Spain vaccine rules to change from February 1 – how will your holiday be affected?

Spain has issued a new update on evidence of vaccination for those visiting the country and new validity requirements. On January 26, the Foreign, Common and Development office (FCDO) issued a new warning to Britons planning travel.

However, the latest update also sets out requirements for people to show evidence of a booster vaccine once their first two jabs “expire”.

The FCDO explains: “From February 1 onwards, at least 14 days must have passed since being fully vaccinated (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) before arrival in Spain.

“Your date(s) of vaccination must be specified and your final dose must have been administered within 270 days prior to travel to Spain.

“If you completed your vaccination (with both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) more than 270 days prior to travel to Spain, you must be able to show proof of having received a booster jab.”

Spain continues to accept the NHS COVID Pass as evidence of vaccination.

Fully vaccinated children aged between 12 and 15 can request an NHS COVID Pass letter for international travel.

The FCDO adds: “Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.”
