British travelers over the age of 12 must still be fully vaccinated or have the proper certificate certifying their recovery from the virus. The deputy director of the tourism office apologized for the misunderstanding.
MailOnline contacts airlines and tour operators to receive news of compensation for unaccompanied travelers.
The country is open to vaccinated Britons, however, those who are not vaccinated are not welcome.
The Spanish Tourism Board in London has danced again since yesterday morning’s announcement that the country would reopen for a non – vaccinated British holiday.
The board said Spain would be open to all British travelers, including those who have not been vaccinated, so passengers can pass a negative test before departure.
Within hours, the decision was reversed and the deputy director of the committee described the misrepresentation as a “misunderstanding”, a “misinterpretation” of the rules set in the Spanish Ministry of Health’s communications.
To the frustration of thousands of vacationers, British travelers 12 and over must show a certificate of recovery no more than 180 days from the full vaccination or travel date to enter the country.
The exception is 12- to 17-year-olds who can enter the country without the vaccine if they prove to have passed a negative, approved PCR test within 72 hours of their arrival. Daily Mail.
