Spain announced on Tuesday that the state will impose an obligatory 10 day-quarantine on all passengers who arrive from India starting from tomorrow.
The decision will be applied to those who come from India through third countries as there are no direct flights between both countries, according to the government’s spokesperson Maria Jesus Montero
She asserted: “This is a measure which our country has already adopted towards passengers from countries where a virus variant has been found.”
It will come into force starting from Wednesday, however, the decision will be applied to arrivals from three Latin American countries Brazil, Peru, and Colombia, and nine African countries such as South Africa and Mozambique.
Spain was not the first country to do this step. Last week, several countries imposed an obligatory quarantine on arrivals from countries that witness new variants, while other countries suspended all flights from and to India.
