Who can and can’t travel to Spain from the UK starting 30th March?

As of the 24th of May, Spain has allowed entry from UK citizens, but the UK government is currently listing Spain as an “amber” destination. 

Current UK FCO advice is not to travel to Spain unless your trip is essential. As FCO advice is not to travel, almost all travel insurance policies will be invalid. 

Currently UK citizens can enter Spain without the need to provide a negative PCR test.
