The Spanish authorities announced on Saturday March 27 that a negative PCR test for Covid-19 of less than 72 hours would now be required for anyone wishing to cross the French land border to travel to Spain.

The measure, which will take effect on Tuesday March 30, and applies to people over the age of 6, comes as Spain steps up restrictions in the hope of avoiding an increase in cases of Covid-19 contamination during Holy Week, which begins this weekend.

Only people working in road transport and cross-border workers will be exempt, as well as people living in the border area provided they stay within a radius of 30 kilometers around their home.

This is the first time that such a requirement has been imposed by Spain on those who cross this land border. Until now, this had only been required for arrivals by air. This measure has already been in place since January 31 for people entering France from Spain by air, land or sea.

Favorite destination with its open bars and curfew at 11 p.m., Madrid has become a refuge for European tourists, especially French tourists, while its inhabitants are banned from leaving the region. This difference in treatment exasperates the Spaniards, even more with the approach of Holy Week, an extremely popular holiday in the country and when people are used to traveling to meet up with their families.
