Travel rules for Spain, US, Thailand and more from passport to Covid requirements

Holidaymakers who plan to go abroad this year will need to keep up to date about the rules and laws for the destination that they will be visiting.

From leftover Covid-19 regulations to visa and passport requirements, there are some laws that can catch people off in hotspots such as Spain, the US and Japan among other locations. It's worth making sure that you're on top of legislation as failing to meet certain rules could leave you with a fine or even barred entry.

Read on for a list of rules for popular destinations that travellers should keep in mind including Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Thailand, the US, Greece, Turkey, Canary Islands, Netherlands, Japan, Indonesia, as reported by The Mirror.

Brits heading on Spain holidays must make sure that their passport was both issued in the past 10 years at the time of entry, and it must be valid for at least three months on the date that you leave the country.

You should make sure you get your passport stamped when you enter or exit the country, as this is used to keep track of how long you've been there for. Brits are allowed 90 days in any 180-day period in Schengen Area countries.

Spain no longer has any Covid entry restrictions unless you're travelling from China, in which case you will be tested and your vaccination status checked upon arrival.

It's important to research the specific area you're visiting before travelling to Spain, as local laws vary significantly.

For example, health bosses across Malaga, Costa del Sol and Seville are now asking people to consider wearing face masks inside crowded places, but it isn't mandatory.

There are no Covid entry requirements for France, but if you catch it while in the country, there are certain rules that you will have to follow.

High demand for McDonald’s adult Happy Meals overwhelms workers
The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box (Credit: McDonald's USA, LLC) McDonald’s adult Happy Meals have gone viral, so much so that McDonald’s staff are drowning in orders and are now begging the public to stop ordering them, according to multiple reports and posts on social media.  The fast-food chain announced Tuesday a collaboration with Cactus Plant Flea Market to create a boxed meal that contains one of four collectible figurines: Grimace, the Hamburglar, and Birdie and Cactus Buddy. Meal options include a Big Mac, or the 10-piece Chicken McNuggets with french fries and a drink. The announcement had adults running (or maybe more like driving) to their local McDonald’s to snag a box. The adult meals are only available for a limited time, which is probably why McDonald’s employees are feeling the sting of handling an avalanche of orders for the specialized meals. People on social media claiming to be McDonald’s workers are venting their frustrations on Reddit and TikTok as orders pile up for the coveted adult Happy Meals and staff struggle to meet demand. One user on Reddit posted under the title: "New Adult Happy-meals are killing me" and said workers need to "literally stockpile them (happy meals) to survive a rush." Another person commented under the Reddit post, saying their McDonald’s location allegedly ran out of boxes the first day they received them and then ran out of toys on the second day.  "And on the third day we had to say the truck doesn’t come till tomorrow.
