01:22 – Spain Travel Update: Travel restrictions extended for third countries until 30 April
Spanish authorities have extended restrictions on non-essential travel from countries outside the European Union and the Schengen Zone until 30 April in order to halt the further spread of the Coronavirus disease.
Initially, the restriction was scheduled to end on 31 March however, due to increasing coronavirus cases, the Spanish government decided to keep the restriction in place until 30 April.
01:57 – Countries with low infection rates
Some countries have reported low rates of infection and they will be eligible to enter the territory.
Travellers from the following third-countries can enter Spain.
New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, China (subject to reciprocity),
as well as the areas of Hong Kong and Macao.
This latest measure would also technically affect travellers from the United Kingdom as it’s now a non-EU country.
Although Spain announced it will lift its travel ban for UK arrivals on 30 March, the British government has prohibited holidays abroad, including in EU countries, and all individuals who violate such a rule risk facing a fine of up to £5,000.
02:47 – EU and Schengen members

* Denmark (except the Faroe Islands and Greenland)
* Estonia * Finland

03:42 – Spain’s Mandatory face Mask Requirements
A strict new law in Spain will require people to wear face coverings at all times outdoors, even while sunbathing on beaches.
It replaces the current rules, which have been in force since June 2020, that only require face coverings to be worn when social distancing is restricted
According to papers published in Spain’s official gazette, those aged six and over must wear masks “on public roads, in open-air spaces and in any closed space for public use or that is open to the public.”
The measure has no end date, but will last until the Government declares the Covid-19 crisis over, the announcement added.
