The government of Spain introduces a mandatory requirement for the tourists from ‘red zone’ countries to provide the results of the PCR tests during the entry to the country or pay a fine in case of their absence as RTVE reported citing Health Minister of Spain Salvador Illa.
“From November 23, Spain will demand the negative PCR tests from the international travelers from the high-risk countries,” Illa stated.
According to the order of the government, all people arriving from the high-risk countries should pass the test in 72 hours before the entrance to Spain. The results of the test should be provided during the arrival to the Spanish airport or seaport.
This measure already acts in France and Italy and it will be held along with the temperature screening and visual control.
In case, a traveler does not bring the result of the PCR test, he/she might be fined and would be obliged to pass the tests for antigen at the airport. According to Illa, a person with a positive result of the test would be banned from entering Spain.
