KUWAIT CITY, Jan 26: Travelers from Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay face stricter restrictions on entering Spain, as these countries have been removed from the “safe countries list”, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting the SchengenVisaInfo.com website.

The decision was announced by the Spanish Ministry of Health, which stated that the new rules against these seven countries began to be implemented yesterday. Previously, travelers who arrived in Spain from one of these seven countries were allowed to enter without the need to provide proof of vaccination or a recent PCR test. Since Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay are no longer part of the safe list, travelers from these areas now need to present a valid vaccination certificate.

Regarding the validity of vaccination permits, travelers should note that from February 1, Spain will only recognize certificates indicating that the holder has been fully vaccinated against the virus within the last 270 days. The official tourism website of Spain Travel Safe confirmed that “From February 1, 2022, keep in mind that you will need at least 14 days from your last dose, and no more than 270 days, since the last dose was given. From that moment on, your vaccination certificate must show the administration of the booster dose.”

This means that all those who received their last dose more than 270 days ago will have to receive an additional dose in order for their entry permit to be considered valid upon arrival in Spain. In addition to the requirement to present a certificate of vaccination, everyone over the age of 12 must fill out a health control form before entering Spain. Once the form is filled out, travelers will receive a QR code, which can then be presented to the responsible authorities upon arrival
