Spain abolishes COVID testing requirement for some EU countries and regions
Most regions in Germany and Italy have been excluded from Spain’s high-risk list of countries and areas, based on the COVID-19 infection rate. As a result, Spain now permits citizens of these regions to travel the country without being obliged to present a negative result of the COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination or recovery, Schengen Visa Info reported.
According to the Spanish Health Ministry, the number of infections in both regions mentioned above has recently decreased; taking into account their advanced vaccination campaigns; therefore, they will be allowed to enter the country restriction-free.
Citizens from all German states, excluding Baden-Württemberg and Saarland, can benefit from Spain’s recent decision too.
As for Italy, travellers from the following regions will be permitted to enter Spain restriction-free; Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Lombardia, Liguria, Marche, Piemonte, Molise, Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano/Bozen, Puglia, Provincia Autonoma di Trento, Sardinia, Toscana, Umbria and Veneto.
From Spain’s testing requirement have also been exempted the following Norwegian territories:
- Møre og Romsdal
- Nordland, Rogaland
Besides the territories mentioned above, visitors from the following countries will also be permitted to enter Spain without being subject to preventive measures imposed to halt the spread of the virus, such as testing or quarantine requirements; Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Malta.
