Excuse my ignorance, but is it the case that even before Brexit, in certain circumstances, a visa was required to visit, or stay in, Spain (or Mallorca in particular) ?

I don’t know for sure, but I imagine it was required for non EU visitors. We’ve just found ourselves discovering yet another “benefit “ of Brexit!

Here’s a bit of positive feedback. We went to Boots Kendal yesterday and had our Day 5 Test to Release at 14:10. The negative test certificate was Emailed to us at 02:24 this morning. Now that’s service! And we’re free again. That is the icing on the cake of a brilliant, long overdue trip to PP. We plan to return in two weeks time……fingers now crossed for the green list announcement tomorrow.

I think it does. You just need to get a certificate from the Spanish Land Registry to show the purchase amount

Just wondered if they have opened Terminal ‘B’ at Palma airport to cope with the extra flights?

Back home and after all the worry regarding required documentation/testing everything went smoothly and we had a wonderful time. Breezed through all airports where documentation was checked quickly and everything was well organised.
We are so glad we still went and are looking forward to returning at the end of August.

at the moment having double vaccinations we only need to have a test 2 day before flying home then book a test when we get back (pcr ) . I have read the info on charges in PP but have no idea what the cost is when we get back. Any ideas folks Scotland test.

Thanks

Have a look at the Scottish gov. COVID International Travel - You must pre book the 2 day test on their site before you leave for home. Otherwise you will Not be allowed to travel. Approx £80 per adult.

We used Screen4. Test was £55. Arrived by DPD day after order. Sent off. Got confirmation of receipt following day and test result following morning. Sticking it up your nostril is still very intrusive!

Have been here for nearly 6 weeks - flight cancellations etc etc! Have booked lateral flow tests for €30 each for later in the week(max anyone can charge by Spanish govt decree) and day 2 PCR tests for when we return to U.K. £40 each - unfortunately I believe in Scotland are charging more. Now only the Passenger locator form to do 48hrs before our flight. When we arrived in early June it was very quiet - now it is more like a normal season. Will be back Sept/Oct.

Default Its so annoying

Cannot understand why it is more expensive in Scotland for the return PCR test unless it is deliberate to try and dissuade as many people as possible to travel.

Think you might have answered your own question there!

I returned to LGW on Saturday evening.....Palma airport was a struggle, took ages to drop the bags at the EJ hub and then a long walk to find another long queue for Passports. After 15mins anyone with double vaccine was dragged off to to the electronic Passport readers, which was a relief.....but then into another queue to stamp the passports!

By this time, we were close to the 30mins before departure and I was getting edgy, however, because all of the gates can't be closed, we arrived to find a long queue for boarding which we joined as normal and was on the plane about 15mins later.

Thats one thing about Palma airport, you really can cut it fine if necessary, although I wouldn't recommend it.
