Updated Spain


Spain


Regions Affected: Andalusia, Canary Islands, Catalonia

Rationale: Spain is number 2 in terms of global tourist arrivals and is much larger than Italy, which has many more regions that Spain. So, a ‘split’ of some key regions of Spain is seen as justified. The split of the Canary islands is dictated by the NM rules on international tourist arrivals.


Specific Changes / What you need to do next


Andalusia
This region will be split into an Eastern (Malaga, Granada) and Western (Seville, Cadiz) region. The ‘old’ region remains with Eastern Andalusia. So, you will need to enter Western Andalusia to get this region counted as visited.

Canary Islands
This region will be split into an Eastern (Las Palmas, Lanzarote) and Western (Tenerife) region. The ‘old’ region remains Western Canary Islands (Tenerife). So, you will need to enter Eastern Canary Islands to get this region counted as visited.

Catalonia
This region will be split into an Eastern (Barcelona, Girona) and Western (Tarragona, Lleida) region. The ‘old’ region remains with Eastern Catalonia. So, you will need to enter Western Catalonia to get this region counted as visited.
