Negative PCR Tests Mandatory for Passengers Arriving to Spain from 65 Countries, Bulgaria Including

 

Spain introduces the requirement for a negative PCR test upon entry into the country for citizens of 65 countries at high risk of COVID-19 infection, including Bulgaria. The measure takes effect from today, November 23.

The Spanish authorities require to present a negative test made 72 hours before arrival in Spain. The measure applies upon arrival at an airport or port, but will not affect passengers crossing the country's land borders. The decision concerns international travellers whose final destination is Spain and not transiting to another country of their final destination.

All passengers are also required to fill in a health control form before entering Spain. It can be found at the following link: https://www.spth.gob.es/ or through the free SPAIN TRAVEL HEALTH-SpTH app. The passenger is obliged to keep a hardcopy of the document.
Passengers arriving in Spain by air or sea must undergo body temperature control, which will be carried out routinely, with a limit of up to 37,5 ÂşC.

The list of countries or risk areas and the criteria used to determine them will be reviewed every fifteen days. Currently on the list of European countries are Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark (excluding the Faroe Islands and Greenland), Slovenia, Slovakia, Estonia, France, Greece (excluding the regions of Kitri, Ionia NĂ­sia, Dietiki Elada and Herea Elada), Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal (excluding the Azores), Romania and Liechtenstein. /BGNES

Authorities may request to see the result of the test, which must be an original document, written either in Spanish or in English, and which may be presented in paper or electronic format

In an announcement  in Spain’s Official Gazette, the government offered more details about the new requirement and provided a list of 65 affected countries and territories, which include the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, France, Belgium, Italy, Argentina, Switzerland and Russia, Bulgaria is also included.

This list will be reviewed every 15 days and the update will be available on the Health Ministry website and on the Spain Travel Health website.

In the Official Gazette announcement, the government also confirmed that for now only PCR tests will be accepted, not antigen tests or antibody tests such as ELISA, CLIA or ECLIA.

Starting on November 23, passengers filling out a health control form before entering Spain (available on www.spth.gob.es or through the free app SPAIN TRAVEL HEALTH-SpTH) will find an additional question asking whether they have a negative PCR test result taken over the previous 72 hours.

Authorities may request to see the result of the test, which must be an original document, written either in Spanish or in English, and which may be presented in paper or electronic format, according to the ministry.

The Gazette adds that “passengers arriving in Spain by sea and those arriving by air who, exceptionally, were unable to fill out an electronic health control form, may show a paper form before boarding, as an alternative to the QR code. In this case, the form must be accompanied by the document certifying that the diagnostic test has been done.”

The Canary Islands, which currently have the best coronavirus situation in Spain, recently approved a similar measure that is set to go into effect on November 14. But in this case it affects both foreign and Spanish tourists, who will not be allowed into a hotel or other tourist accommodation without a negative test taken within the last 72 hours.

For now there are no plans for other regional governments to follow suit and ask tourists from other parts of Spain to produce a negative PCR test in order to stay at a hotel or holiday rental./el pais

Greece Shuts Some Land Borders, Makaza-Nimfea Checkpoint Lets through Only Trucks

 

Greece is closing some land borders to curb the spread of coronavirus to the north, Keep Talking Greece reported. The Greek government has decided to close some of the border crossings in northern Greece and tightens test requirements for Covid-19 in an attempt to curb the rapid spread of Coronavirus over the wider area. One border checkpoint with Albania is shut down and one border crossing point with Bulgaria will remain open only for trucks.

"The Krystallopigi (Smardesh) border checkpoint will be closed from 06 am on Friday, November 20, 2020," government spokesman Stelios Petsas said. He added that "the Kakavia (Albania), Evzonoi (North Macedonia) and Kulata-Promahon (Bulgaria) border crossing points will remain open, while only trucks will pass through the Makaza-Nimfea (Bulgaria) checkpoint."

 The minister added that those entering the country, in addition to the mandatory negative PCR tests carried out 72 hours before arrival in Greece, will also undergo rapid tests at the borders.

"Those tested negative will be able to enter the country and be directed to their destination," Petsas said.

Regarding the epidemiological burden in northern Greece, Petsas said that the control of compliance with protection and blocking measures will be strengthened.

"The number of infection cases remains high in the area despite the blockade," he said.

The mainstream media blame not only citizens for this, but also seasonal workers who come to northern Greece from neighboring countries and from areas with high morbidity rates. At 3:00 pm, state-run ERT TV reported from Krystallopigi that increasingly fewer seasonal workers are coming to the country and many are leaving Greece to not be trapped there. It is unclear whether the border crossing point will remain open to commercial vehicles, ERT reported, adding that the decision should be expected to be published in the official gazette. /BGNES
