Ten EU Countries Abolish Covid Entry Rules, But Not Spain

Spending Easter in Europe will be easier this year, as the list of EU countries that have lifted all Covid entry rules has grown to ten. Despite relying heavily on tourism, Spain has maintained the existing regulations.

With the Easter holiday approaching, travellers can begin planning their trip to Europe, as the majority of countries have already relaxed their entry requirements.

While some European Union/European Economic Area countries abolished their Covid entry rules for all travellers, others decided to impose less stringent rules or only ease restrictions for certain types of travellers.

However, the list of countries that have lifted all restrictions and now allow restriction-free entry to all travellers regardless of their country of origin is growing, and there are currently ten EU countries that do not have any Covid entry rules. These are the countries:

  • Denmark
  • Hungary
  • Iceland
  • Ireland
  • Latvia
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Romania
  • Slovenia
  • Sweden

Three more countries, Czechia, Estonia, and the Netherlands have followed suit, but only for EU/EEA citizens. 

The health requirements for the rest of Europe have either been simplified or remain unchanged. Most countries require a vaccination certificate, but more and more countries are allowing unvaccinated travellers as long as they show a valid test.

Many tourists hoped that the current requirements for Spain would be lifted at the end of March, but it now appears that they will be in effect during the Easter holidays. The existing Covid entry rules in Spain have been extended until April 30. This could have an impact on yet another tourism mini-season, further complicating matters for the hospitality industry.
