“The Ministry of Health itself [Spanish] has already conveyed that effectively, with regard to travel by land with Portugal, one is going to return to where one was. In other words, it will not require any type of proof, any type of additional protocol beyond what was already requested”, said María Jesús Montero at the press conference after the meeting of the Spanish Council of Ministers.

The Spanish executive has since backed down, following an announcement that  “as of June 7, all people over six years old who cross the land border between Portugal must have some of the health certifications required for all passengers entering in Spain by air and sea”.
