Spain has extended the ban on the entry of Russian tourists
The Spanish Ministry of the Interior has extended the current ban on entry into the country for tourist trips from most third countries. This ban has been in effect in this form since July 17 of this year.
Russia was not included in the list of third countries allowed to entry, despite the fact that the Russian headquarters had approved flights since September 21.
According to the decree, the travel ban will remain in effect until the end of October and may be extended if the ministry deems it necessary to contain the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
This means that unvaccinated tourists cannot enter in Spain for tourist purposes. To be eligible to cross the Spanish border as a traveler with vaccinated status, you must be vaccinated with one of the drugs approved by Spain, the EU or WHO. At least 14 days should have passed since the last injection. Russian drugs have not yet received approval in Europe.
World Health Organization data showed that 1 250 new COVID-19 cases had been reported in Spain in the previous 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases detected since the start of the pandemic to 4 953 930. According to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, 90,3% of adults in the country are vaccinated with at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 82,4% are fully vaccinated.
