The Spanish Ministry of Health has announced that COVID antigen detection tests for entry to Spain must now be taken within 24 hours of travel.


COVID antigen detection tests for entry to Spain must now be taken within 24 hours before arrival, instead of the previous 48, the Spanish Ministry of Health has announced.
The new measures, introduced today, Tuesday, February 1, mean that negative antigen test certificates issued outside the 24-hour period will no longer be accepted.
PCR tests performed 72 hours prior to arrival in Spain will remain valid.

      That´s going to make it easier for tourists then I dont think? This bunch of spanners really can´t help themselves can they? Dreadful unemployment but they still can´t do anything to make it easier for tourists to come over and bring money into this country. I suppose Sanchez will just take EU handouts and tax us workers instead. What a disaster.
