"My niece wants to come back to Spain with my father she’s not vaccinated but she’s immediate family" Your niece is not his immediate family member

In general, a person's immediate family is his or her smallest family unit, including parents, siblings, spouse, and children. It may include relatives through marriage, such as a mother-in-law. But the exact inclusions may differ depending on the law or organization that defines an individual's immediate family.

I think you will find the rules just state ‘family member’ doesn’t mention immediate……. I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

I was quoting OP. She said immediate family member. I was simply stating that is not correct

The triple jabbed are still catching and spreading the virus though ?

The vaccine passports that was in hospitality, how did that keep covid out of a bar or restaurant ?

Now the vaccine passports in bars and restaurants is scrapped so does that mean covid has vanished ?

Being vaccinated to enter a country just does not hold any moral sense.

Surely a pcr test 24hrs before travelling was a much better option.

if we was trying to do that I wouldn’t have bothered asking the question on here would i, we would have just told her to chance it and travel to Spain,

we don’t write what the government write in black and white on a government website, we can only try and follow what they say and if that meant you’re allowed to travel here unvaccinated with a resident family member then we would jump at the chance.

never mind anyones personal circumstances weather they’re vaccinated or not and people not wanting vaccinated people in the country. The government make the rules they don’t and it’s going to all be scrapped shortly anyway so it’s tough cookies isn’t it for anybody who has something against unvaccinated people.

Just wait until the government lifts the restrictions on unvaccinated people. I had covid at Christmas after I had been double jabbed. I got jabbed so I could travel. However this month they will want me to have yet Another jab so I can enter. Im not sure I’m going to bother with a booster.

I just believe it’s each to their own in regards to vaccines, all this having a pop at each other over being vaxxed or none vaxxed and you shouldn’t be able to do this or that or go anywhere if you ain’t vaxxed is diabolical,

vaccine passports on the other hand just don’t hold any substance what so ever, the virus still spreads from one man to the next, a vaccinated person can pass the virus to a none vaccinated person and vice versa

a bar, restaurant, flight can be full of vaccinated people and still be riddled with covid

i just don’t get it at all

Naaaa, if you're not vaccinated then you should be isolated and ostracized, period.

I thought it was brilliant when that tennis star Novak Djokovic was booted out of Australia!

I hope Spain keeps all the Covid entry restrictions for bug carrying foreigners in place.

Spain permits third country nationals with covid recovery certificates. So you don’t have to be vaccinated if you can prove you’ve had https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/new...-certificates/. Still can’t see this being enough to attract younger tourists to Spain the same level as pre covid. A move in the right direction for Spanish business that relies on British tourism.

Im interested to know if this is just your opinion?

I thought it was brilliant when that tennis star Novak Djokovic was booted out of Australia!

I would agree in part with this, but had he arrived a week earlier and spent the time in isolation as did others who were allowed to play, there would have been no issues.

I hope Spain keeps all the Covid entry restrictions for bug carrying foreigners in place.

Do you have any documented evidence that non vaccinated people are more of a risk (i.e. carrying and spreading than vaccinated people) ?

And thanks for the welcome....

The argument for boosters is not that it stops you getting C19, nor that you can spread C19. It is simply that if you get the b*stard it is more likely to be a cold than a VERY nasty flu(if youve had the other two). Family experience suggests anecdotally this is the case. 93 year old mother and 65 year old brother both had a mild to horrid 5 day cold. Fit 33 year old fitness fanatic niece (not yet boostered) had over two weeks of flu hell. Very nasty indeed.

Well according to this most of the EU will not be giving the general population a 4th dose, so the covid pass will either have to have its end date extended (continuously a bit like driving licence exchange) or it will go all together and everyone will be in the same boat again.

I object to the use of the word 'knob' as I find it offensive.
