Spanish authorities have extended the country’s COVID-19 state of alarm again.

Key Points:

  • The current state of alarm has been extended again until April 26. The extension applies to inland border controls as well.
  • The original state of alarm implemented many measures to restrict the movement of people. It was first extended to April 12 and recently has been extended again to April 26. Business activities and travel remain limited. Certain immigration services are suspended and online services are also limited. Land borders are closed as well, with some exceptions.

Analysis & Comments: The state of alarm extension will continue to impact the mobility of third-country and EU nationals into Spain. It is possible the current state of alert will be extended again. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly. Delays may occur for consular and in-country processing.
