The United States Department of State this Tuesday announced a relaxation of its recommendations for travel to more than 30 countries, including Spain, based on the improvement in the coronavirus pandemic situation.
This department has stated that it is updating travel advice based on changes in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) international travel guide, according to Bloomberg agency.
In the update to the CDC Guide, several countries moved from level 4, which implies the recommendation “do not travel”, to level 3, which means “reconsider travel”. This means that people planning to travel to these countries are advised to “ensure they are fully vaccinated” while those who do not avoid “non-essential travel”.
According to CNN, 33 countries have moved to lower risk categories and new indications have been given for more than 120.
Spain is at level 3 as of this Monday, like France, Germany, Greece, Canada, Mexico, South Korea and Singapore, as stated in the Foreign Ministry’s web portal, which reports on international travel recommendations, and in the CDC.
