Tuesday 23rd February 2021 | MIKE SMITH

The Council of Ministers has renewed the terms of validity of the restrictions on entry to Spain from the United Kingdom, Brazil and South Africa until 6:00 p.m. on March 16th, extending the agreements of December 22nd in the first case and February 2nd in the other two.

Direct flights and passenger ships between the United Kingdom and Spanish airports and ports continue to be limited from 6.00pm CET on March 2nd to 6.00pm CET on March 16th. As provided in the agreement, flights from any airport located in the United Kingdom to any airport located in Spain, with or without intermediate stops, may only be carried out in the case of aircraft that carry exclusively Spanish or Andorran nationals, or residents in Spain or Andorra.

Likewise, only ro-ro passenger ships and passenger ships that provide regular line service between ports of the United Kingdom and Spain that have embarked passengers in British ports will be allowed to enter Spanish ports in the case of ships that transport exclusively Spanish or Andorran nationals, or residents in Spain or Andorra. However, the agreement establishes some exceptions to these limitations, and enables the Ministry of Health to lift the planned limitation, occasionally authorizing aircraft flights or entry of ships for justified reasons.

In addition, there is a extension of the limitation of flights between the Brazil and South Africa and Spanish airports, from 6.00pm CET on March 2nd to 6.00pm CET on March 16th.

As provided in the agreement, flights from any airport located in the Brazil or South Africa to any airport located in Spain, with or without intermediate stops, may only be carried out in the case of aircraft that transport exclusively Spanish or Andorran nationals, or residents in Spain or Andorra or passengers in international transit to a non-Schengen country with a stopover of less than 24 hours without leaving the transit area of ​​the Spanish airport.

However, the agreement establishes some exceptions to said limitations, and enables the Ministry of Health to lift the planned limitation, occasionally authorizing aircraft flights for justified reasons.
