This article fails to mention you don't even need a negative test for Spain if you're coming from the UK... and Japan!

I don't think I'll travel before 2023

Given that the current default attitude is to impose restrictions every time there is an even small outbreak, I suspect travel will be limited for a number of years to come.

Well, I'm just waiting for a nearby country that offers vaccinations to tourists.

Coming from the UK, even though I am a few weeks away from being fully vaccinated, Japan will treat me as if I am infected!

Before travel a PCR test, a 3 day hotel quarantine, two PCR tests in 3 days then a 10 day home quarantine!

4 negative PCR tests?

Overkill!

Japan has a small percentage of its people vaccinated yet the foreigners are treated very differently.

I might go to Spain....

No information about visiting Canada from anywhere around the globe? Not everyone travels to Europe, Asia and the Caribbean, although I have.
