Travellers from risk areas who want to enter Spain will soon have to show a negative corona test that is no older than three days.
Madrid will implement that condition from November 23, the Ministry of Health said on Wednesday.
As one of the areas most affected by the coronavirus, Spain has become an increasingly exceptional exception in the region by not requiring a negative corona test for people from areas with high corona rates.
Many other countries have introduced this rule to prevent people with corona from entering the country and lighting more people.
Madrid will use the EU criteria to determine what are risk areas. These include regions with more than 150 new corona cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 14 days.
Spain is the second country in Western Europe in terms of the number of cases, after France, with almost 1.4 million infections.
