However, Spain and Italy have indicated that their travel restrictions would remain in place at least until the end of the month despite a rising number of European nations lifting all of their Covid-related travel restrictions.
Because of an extension until April 30, Irish and other tourists visiting Spain for the Easter holidays will have to continue to produce evidence of vaccination, recovery, or a negative test result until the end of the month.
The Health Control Form must be completed by passengers who do not have an EU Digital Covid Certificate or a similar document before traveling to Spain.
Children under the age of 12 are excluded from the application of these regulations.
As for the ground, Spain will restrict the wearing of masks in indoor public venues and on public transportation, including taxis, until April 20, among other requirements.
The Easter vacation season is approaching, and many travelers and business executives had anticipated that Spain would loosen its limitations in time.
Inbound travel to the nation, on the other hand, seems to have recovered, with statistics from ForwardKeys indicating that the country’s Easter reservations are about 90 percent of what they were in January 2019.
Many European nations, including Ireland, Denmark, Poland, Sweden, Norway, Hungary, Iceland, and Switzerland, as well as the United Kingdom, have abolished all Covid-related travel restrictions. The United Kingdom is one of these countries.
Italian health minister Roberto Speranza has approved a legislation that essentially extends the country’s current Covid restrictions until at least April 30.
It implies that the nation will continue to enforce its “Vaccinated, recovered, tested” regulation for entrance – you must provide evidence of one of these in order to enter – as well as its passenger locator form, among other things. Face masks should only be used inside and on public transportation.
Authorities said they will examine the restrictions before their expiration date, which is April 30th, 2019.
In an interview with Italian television talk show Che Tempo Che Fa, Mr Speranza said that the end of the state of emergency does not imply that the virus has been eradicated or that the epidemic has ended.
“In comparison to other nations, we have taken a more gradual approach.”
“We have entered a new period. To believe that we could handle the epidemic in the same manner that we did a year ago would be to be mistaken.
Following the conclusion of the country’s State of Emergency, the government will, however, continue to relax some of its Covid regulations on the ground this month.
Furthermore, Portugal continues to demand travelers aged 12 and above to fill out and provide a Passenger Locator Card, as well as documentation of immunization, recovery, or a negative test result.
Madeira, on the other hand, does not have any Covid travel limitations.
