Germany no longer considers Spain a high-risk country for Covid-19 and has removed the country, along with various others, from its red list for travel.

The German government has removed Spain and various other countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, from its list of areas considered high risk for Covid-19, which will make it easier to travel to these countries.

The other areas that Germany has removed from its red list are the French overseas departments French Guiana, Mayotte and Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, as well as Tunisia, Morocco, India, Ireland , Andorra, Afghanistan, Algeria, Fiji, Kazakhstan, Qatar, Laos, Nepal, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan and United Arab Emirates.

Anyone entering Germany from a high-risk area who is not fully vaccinated (with two doses) or who has not yet recovered from the virus must self-isolate for ten days, unless they can provide a negative test no earlier than five days after entering the country. Following this change, all travelers over the age of six from Spain must present a negative test, a vaccination certificate or a certificate proving that they have recovered from the virus. In the case of children under the age of six, the isolation period automatically ends five days after arrival.
