Hi,

Booked a holiday for March and just noticed my oldest son who is 12 is not allowed into country due to not being double vaccinated, does anyone know if there is any way around this or if we do go that he will be rejected at fuerteventura airport

Hi, my understanding is this is to be reviewed on the 29th of Jan although they may well keep the rule.  Good luck.

No, there is no way round it.  Anybody 12 yrs plus must have been double vaccinated.  This ruling has been extended until 24th February and will be reviewed a couple of days prior to that.  But don't hold your breath as I wouldn't mind betting they'll extend it again.

Further, from 1st February, if your 2nd vaccination was more than 270 days prior to your arrival, you must have the booster as well to enter.

Also, remember that you will be rejected at your departure airport in the UK as they also check the flight regulations for entering a country they fly to. Given this, you may want to contact your operator.

Sorry, but I am afraid there is no way around this.

Good news.  You are in luck. The restriction on children has just been lifted. Spain has scrapped its ban on unvaccinated children aged over 12 as hundreds of thousands of families head off on trips abroad during the half-term.

The country will drop its entry requirement applying to those from non-EU countries, such as the UK, from Monday - coinciding with the first day of the school holiday.
