One more step towards unrestricted recreational navigation.
Order TMA/419/2020 of 18 May only allowed the entry into Spanish ports of foreign-flagged recreational vessels or vessels whose port of stay was in Spain or had professional crew.
As of today, Monday, June 15, according to Order SND/520/2020, of June 12, this restriction disappears. The rewording of Article 3 of the May Order has removed the reference to the limitation for vessels and pleasure craft and is only maintained for cruise ships.
So, from today all foreign flag pleasure ships and boats have access to Spanish ports just as do the Spanish-flagged vessels.
