Spanish borders of Ceuta and Melilla with Morocco to remain closed for another month
Previously, the entry ban for arrivals from Morocco was announced to be effective until June 30. However, in line with the Ministry’s newly made announcement, the borders will stay closed until July 31.
In accordance with the new restrictions imposed by the Spanish authorities, arrivals from Morocco will not be allowed to enter the country. When the Spanish Government decided to close the borders with Morocco, they highlighted that they were only following the principle of reciprocity.
The Tarajal border in Ceuta and the Beni Enzar border in Melilla have been closed since March 2020 when the Government of Spain declared a state of alarm and ordered lockdown measures, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
Since then, the only persons who have been allowed to cross the land border between Spain and Morocco are Spanish or EU Member States citizens who were trapped in Morocco due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Persons who are allowed to enter Spain from Morocco under certain conditions must fill in a Health Control form as well as present proof of vaccination against the COVID-19, a negative test result, or evidence of the previous recovery. ■
