Changes to travel rules England-Spain

Via British Embassy

As you may have seen, there have been some changes to the rules on travelling to England.

As of 4am on Friday 7th January, eligible fully vaccinated travellers and under 18s will no longer have to take a pre-departure test or self-isolate on arrival in England, but must continue to take their post-arrival tests.

From 4am on Sunday 9 January, eligible fully vaccinated travellers and children aged 5 to 17 will be able to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR on or before day 2 of their arrival in England. Lateral flow tests for travel can be booked from Friday 7th January and taken upon arrival, by the end of day 2

Anyone who receives a positive result on their lateral flow test must self-isolate immediately and order a NHS PCR test from GOV.UK.

There are no changes to the travel requirements for unvaccinated adults. Unvaccinated passengers must continue to take a pre-departure test, PCR test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 and self-isolate for 10 days.

‘Test to release’ remains an option for unvaccinated people to shorten their self-isolation period.Please visit https://www.gov.uk/…/travel-to-england-from-another…for full information and do sign up for email updates, so that you are notified as and when there are any further changes.
