SINGAPORE, 21 February 2021: Families can enjoy more relaxing travel to Spain following the country’s approval of easier health entry requirements for non-EU travellers 12 to 17 years.
It means travellers from countries where access to the Covid vaccines is difficult or not yet possible for young adults or children 12 to 17 need only to submit a negative covid NAAT molecular nucleic acid amplification test (RT-PCR or similar) 72 hours before their arrival in Spain. They do not need to present a vaccination certificate.
Likewise, children under 12 years of age, who travel with an adult, are still not subject to any health requirement, same as before.
Spain is responding to the problematic situation that impacted families with children who are not eligible for vaccination. Under previous rules, parents vaccinated against Covid-19 were free to enter the country but travelling with their children became troublesome for families with children and young adults who are not eligible for vaccine programmes.
The revision means families can reunite with friends and relatives in Spain or enjoy an Easter holiday break.
