Spain has finally announced that it's dropping all entry requirements for non-EU arrivals, which means that visitors from the UK will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test in order to enter the country.

Published a new Resolution of the Ministry of Health has published today a new resolution according to which all entry requirements for non-EU visitors are lifted. You can check out the official BOE document (Boletin del Estado), but the document is available only in Spanish. 

This means that starting from October 21, the health control measures for passengers from non-EU countries or Schengen countries will be dropped. 

Spain had already dropped the health locator form (Spth) in September, while entry requirements for EU citizens and visitors coming from Schengen countries had already been dropped months ago.

Now, with this change, visitors coming from the UK, as well as the US, Canada and other non-EU countries, can enter Spain with no restrictions, without needing to show any proof of vaccine or negative test and without having to complete any entry form whatsoever.
