At Nerja Paradise Rentals we understand the concerns around travelling after the Covid pandemic and Brexit and as such want to provide as much information as possible to provide answers and reassure our clients wherever possible.


You should check with the Spanish Embassy in your country of residence for current travel advice and restrictions for entry into Spain. Spain has adopted the EU Traffic Light approach to guide EU travellers who wish to travel to the country – check out https://reopen.europa.eu/en for more information. The UK is no longer part of the EU and so UK residents have different requirements – see the Spanish Embassy in London’s website.

Follow current COVID-19 rules where you live: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

All foreign nationals arriving in Spain must have proof of vaccination or proof of recovery (see https://www.spth.gob.es/info-pcr). 


Non EU and non-UK tourists will need to apply for a Schengen Visa https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/ – the process for application depends on your nationality. 

If you’re a tourist travelling from the UK, you do not need a visa for short trips to Spain. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

EU tourists have no restrictions on the length of stay in Spain, but must register with the National Police for stays of more than three months.

Non EU and UK tourists wishing to stay for longer than 90 days may apply for a visa to stay in Spain – depending on their specific circumstances. There are different visas for retiring to Spain, for non-lucrative residence, studying in Spain and working and living in Spain. You will need to check with the Spanish Embassy in your country of residence for the visas available and application process.

UK residents should check the Spanish Consulate website http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Consulados/LONDRES/en/Consulado/Pages/Visas.aspx.

  • Masks are no longer obligatory in public places – apart from in hospitals and medical facilities, or on public transport. Some places may still ask you to wear a mask – we would recommend following what the locals do!
