THE only country in the EU to still have Covid travel restrictions for Brits is Spain, with all other European nations scrapping their entry rules.

Spanish restrictions have been removed for all people from other EU or Schengen nations.

However, non-EU citizens are still subject to some travel rules when entering the country.

UK tourists are still required to show proof of full vaccination, recovery from Covid, a negative lateral flow test taken 24 hours before departure, or a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before departure.

All tourists are also subject to temperature checks on arrival, although those are set to be scrapped later this month, according to local media reports.

Other restrictions were peeled back last month, with tourists no longer required to fill in a health form.

The Spanish Ministry of Health posted on Facebook: "It will no longer be necessary to complete the health check form to travel to Spain or present the QR code of SpTH (Spain Travel Health) at the airport on arrival."

The other measures are expected to remain in place until at least November 15.

Face masks are still required on planes too.

Spain remains the final country to still impose travel restrictions on non-EU travellers, with Luxembourg the latest to scrap rules.

They follow the Netherlands, who ditched their regulations last month.

Brits needed to be fully vaccinated to visit prior to that, but this rule is no longer in place.

Its latest statement reads: "The Dutch government has decided to lift the EU entry ban for the Netherlands as of September 17, 2022.

"Given the current epidemiological situation in the Netherlands, the government feels that for entry to the Netherlands, the EU entry ban is no longer proportional."

Meanwhile Portugal removed mandatory face mask wearing in public spaces.

Face masks were previously still required when on any public transport, such as flights, buses and taxis.

However, this is no longer advised, according to the UK Foreign Office.

Instead, it is "recommended" they are worn in certain places.

The advice currently states: "You should wear your face covering, as appropriate, when you enter buildings and keep it on until you leave."
