Spain prohibits the entry of those who have gone to Brazil; see other restrictions – 02/02/2021 – World

The Spanish government has banned travelers from Brazil and South Africa until February 17, except for Spanish citizens and residents. The aim is to prevent the entry of more contagious variants of the coronavirus, identified in these countries.

Passengers in transit to countries outside the Schengen area (which includes 26 countries) will be allowed, provided the stopover lasts a maximum of 24 hours. However, it will be compulsory to stay at the airport. The measure comes into effect Wednesday (3) at 9 a.m. (local time).

Austria, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy, the United Kingdom and Portugal are other countries which would prevent flights from Brazil or the entry of those who were in the country before boarding, except in exceptional cases.

In the Italian case, the government extended until February 15 the blocking of flights from Brazil and limited until February 22 the entry of those who crossed the country in the previous 14 days.

In Germany, the entry restriction began on the 30th and ends on the 17th of February. The measure also affects passengers arriving from other places where there are major traffic variants, such as the United Kingdom, Portugal, Ireland and South Africa.

In France, on the other hand, the entry ban applies to all those arriving from outside the European Union and came into force on Sunday at midnight. For those leaving European countries, a negative coronavirus test will be required.

This Monday (1st), the European Council approved the recommendation for a mandatory 14-day quarantine for passengers from countries with high traffic of more worrying variants, such as Brazil, the United Kingdom or South Africa . Member countries may, however, impose additional restrictions.

See below the requirements of European countries for entry of foreigners.
