13/07/2021 - Changes to Self Isolation - Scotland

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that from July 19, passengers arriving in Scotland from Amber list countries, which includes Spain, will no longer have to self isolate and the number of PCR tests required has been reduced for those citizens that have had both vaccinations.

So, no self isolation, but you will still need to take a PCR test within 72 hours of you flight to Scotland and one other PCR test that should be done on day two of your arrival home in Scotland. These rules apply to only those with both vaccinations. This is great news and a step forward to the day when we will not have any restrictions at all! Read the Official Requirements Here
