When or how can I travel into Spain

Can I go somewhere and quarantine 14 days then go into Andalusia in Spain?

If you have a U.S. Passport you are currently not allowed in Spain. If you have a passport from another country, let us know which one.

United just told me that I can book flights to Madrid starting October 23, 2020. I asked who opened this up and they said he US State Department. I did not see anything on the State Dept website. I believe it must be Spain who opens up to US citizens?? Anyone else heard this? Thank you again.

Sandy, yes, it must be Spain who decides to let in U.S citizens and under what circumstances. Right now there are a few exceptions to the rule that no one from the U.S. is allowed in - but certainly tourism is not one of those.

I am sure United will let you buy a ticket but whether Spain will let you in is a different matter. And things are changing rapidly and constantly regarding those rules so there is no way right now to predict what the regulations will be nearly 2 months from now.

I’m sure that United will happily sell anyone a ticket. They don’t care or decide if you can enter Spain.

It’s pretty simple - US tourists are not allowed to come to Spain.

Realizing no one has a crystal ball...thoughts on booking a trip to Spain in April or May of 2021 from the US?

coghillt, that's the earliest I would even consider booking a flight to Europe. Of course no one knows what will happen in 2021, but with cases increasing right now in Europe, it's probably a pretty safe bet that they won't be letting us in any time in the next few months.

I wouldn't book anything non-refundable for that time, and for refundable purchases (like some airfares these days) I'd be concerned about whether I'd be able to get my money back if the airline went bankrupt.

I haven't totally given up on heading to Europe in May or June 2021, but all I'm doing is researching destinations and trying to figure out how many nights I'd like to stay in each place, etc. That work will be beneficial no matter when I'm able to travel. It's possible I'll be comfortable traveling (if there's quite a good vaccine and I get it by March-April) but Europe will not be ready to welcome me until later in the year. I don't want to think about the possibility of not traveling until 2022, given that I'm almost 69 years old today.

happy birthday ac!

I have a similar plan--to play it by ear. I can throw a trip together quickly if health risks have been dealt with, and I don't want to go through the refund rigamarole again.

Thanks everyone. Happy birthday AC and thank you for all your posts . I am going to see what happens in next couple of months. I am going to be hopeful I can get back to Cadiz next year. In the meantime I sent my passport for renewal as it can take two months. Stay safe everyone.
