Conditions for entry into Spain

​Please read our FAQs  here​

Nationals of third States who travel to Spain for stays of up to 90 days (during any period of 180 days) for tourism, business, family visits, medical treatment, study, non-work internships or volunteer activities with a duration not exceeding 3 months, or for other non-gainful activities, must meet the entry conditions established in the Schengen Borders Code.

Entry requirements​​ 

  • Enter via an authorised border-crossing point.
  • Present proof of identity and a valid travel document.
  • Present the corresponding visa if required, according to nationality.
  • Provide evidence of meeting the conditions for the proposed stay and of possessing sufficient financial resources.
  • Not be subject to a ban on entering Spain.

Documents to present at the border​​  

1. Valid passport or travel document : The document must be valid until three months after the planned date of departure from the Schengen territory, and must have been issued during the ten years immediately before the date of entry. 

2. Visa : For certain nationalities, a valid visa is required. This visa will not be necessary if the interested party has a valid residence permit or a valid long-term visa issued by a Schengen State. 

3. Documents accrediting the purpose and conditions of the planned stay : At the request of the competent authorities, the reasons and conditions of the planned stay must be accredited by documentary proof or other means. To this end, the presentation, among others, of the following documents may be required: 

  • Return or tourist circuit ticket, in all cases. 
  • For professional trips, the invitation from a company or authority to participate in a meeting, or documents that prove the existence of a relationship associated with professional activity, or access cards to a trade fair or congress. 
  • For tourist or private visits, the confirmed reservation of an organized trip, or proof of accommodation, or letter of invitation from a private individual (such a letter only proves the availability of accommodation and does not release the traveller from the obligation to meet the other requirements for entry). The proof of accommodation may indicate whether it includes all or part of the traveller's living expenses. 
  • For study trips, training programmes, non-work internships or volunteer work with a duration of less than three months, enrolment documentation or proof of admission to an educational establishment or internship contract or proof of admission to a volunteer programme.  
  • For travel for other reasons, an invitation, reservation, programme or certificate of participation in related activities, entrance card/ticket, or receipt. 

Accreditation of financial means​​​  

At the request of the competent authorities, the traveller must present proof of having sufficient financial means for the proposed stay or of the ability to legally obtain such means. 

In 2020, the minimum amount required is 90 euros per person per day. In any case, and regardless of the length of stay, the traveller must have at least 810 euros or its equivalent in foreign currency. 

Economic means may be accredited by presenting cash, traveller's cheques, a credit card accompanied by a bank account statement, an up-to-date bank book, or any other resource that accredits the amount available, such as a credit statement regarding the card or bank account. Bank letters or online bank statements will not be accepted.

Entry authorization​​​  

Authorization to enter Spain may be granted to nationals of third States who have the necessary documentation, including, where appropriate, a visa, and sufficient financial means, and who are not subject to an entry ban and do not pose a danger to public order, the internal or external security of the State, or public health.

Denial of entry​ 

The competent authorities will deny entry to nationals of third States who do not meet the entry requirements or who are subject to an entry ban. Entry may also be denied if, in the previous 180 days, the traveller has exhausted the 90-day period for authorized stay in the Schengen area. 

The denial of entry will be notified by means of a reasoned decision, together with information on the procedure for appealing against this decision, in accordance with Spanish regulations. However, filing an appeal does not suspend the effects of the denial of entry.

Citizens of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, and their family members​​ 

Citizens of the Member States of the European Union, and citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, may enter Spain with their national identity card or with a valid passport. Minors who travel with an identity document and are not accompanied by a parent will need the authorization of one of their parents. 

Family members who are not nationals of a Member State of the European Union or of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland may enter with a valid passport. Depending on their nationality, they may need an entry visa, unless they have a valid residence card as the relative of a European Union citizen.

The Spanish tourism board in the UK has confirmed that unvaccinated British travelers cannot travel to Spain after mistakenly announcing on Wednesday that they could.

Yesterday, the Spanish tourist board in the UK tweeted that unvaccinated travelers were permitted to travel to Spain if they provided a negative test ahead of the Easter break. The tweet said the move was a "step in the right direction" and it led to multiple reports appearing across the media recounting the new rules.

However, later on Wednesday evening, the tourist board removed the tweet and said that it had been sent in error. It confirmed that the current rules still stand, unvaccinated British travelers are not permitted to enter Spain, even if they test negative for COVID-19. There is an exception for those who have recovered from the virus within the last six months and children between the age of 12 and 17.

Pedro Medina, deputy director of the Spanish tourist office in the UK said: "We apologise unreservedly for the miscommunication earlier today which was due to a misunderstanding of the new entry requirements."

What are the current rules for traveling to Spain?

If you are coming from the EU or Schengen Zone , you can provide either a certificate of vaccination, a certificate of recovery, or a negative PCR (72 hours prior to arrival) or antigen test (24 hours). Children under 12 are exempt from the rules.

If you are coming from a country outside the EU/Schengen Zone, including the UK, the US, and Canada, you must be fully vaccinated, show a certificate of recovery (issued within the last six months), or provide an essential reason for traveling to Spain.

Traveling to the Canary or Balearic islands in Spain? Here’s what to expect

Anyone over 18 who received the last dose of a primary vaccine course more than 270 days (nine months) ago must receive a booster to be considered fully vaccinated. At least 14 days must have passed since the last jab. Those aged between 12 and 17 just need to show proof of a complete primary vaccine course to be considered fully vaccinated.

Unvaccinated teenagers (between the age of 12 and 17) who are traveling from the UK, US, or any country not in the EU/Schengen Zone, can take a negative test to travel to Spain.

When will Spain relax entry rules?

Many countries in Europe such as Denmark, Ireland, Iceland, and the UK have dropped all COVID-19 entry rules at their borders. Spain's entry rules are in place until at least April 30, 2022. However, the government has given no indication that the rules will change after that date.

The new Spain travel rules explained

Purobeach Mallorca

Travel in 2022 is easier than it has been in a while as Covid restrictions ease, but what does this mean for holidays to Spain , and are British travellers allowed to enter? Here’s what you need to know about the entry rules and Covid tests required if you're planning a trip to Spain now. 

Can I go to Spain on holiday?

Yes. Travel rules have been significantly lifted in 2022, making holidays far simpler than during the previous two years.

For your return to the UK afterwards, there is no need to take a test. Since 18 March 2022, all people travelling from Spain to the UK do not need to take any tests or quarantine when returning to England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland as the UK has now dropped all Covid travel rules. 

What are the Spain travel restrictions for Covid?

As of 21 October 2022, the last remaining travel restrictions were lifted on entry to Spain. All of the rules that previously applied are no longer enforced, including the requirement to present proof of vaccination, the requirement to fill out travel forms ahead of arriving in the country, proof of having recovered from Covid in the last 6 months, or proof of a negative PCR or antigen test upon arrival.

Since 20 April 2022, face masks are no longer a requirement inside in Spain, apart from on public transport and in hospitals and retirement homes. The Spanish government has stated that, if cases continue to rise during the summer months, masks may be reintroduced in more areas of daily life.

Can you travel to Spain unvaccinated?

Yes, entry requirements for Spain are the same for all travellers of any age, regardless of Covid vaccination status.

What are the entry requirements for the Canary Islands?

All entry requirements to the Canary Islands are the same as on mainland Spain, outlined above. On Thursday 24 March 2022, many Covid restrictions were lifted within the Canary Islands, which meant an end to the ‘dancing ban’ that had restricted dancing in bars, clubs and restaurants. 

Is it safe to travel to Spain now?

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office considers Spain safe to visit right now, although notes that it's important to get travel insurance before your trip. It's always best to check local government advice before travelling, as rules can change quickly and without notice. 

The new Spain travel rules explained

Where to stay : Are you looking for time to decompress post-lockdown, or for a busy city break? After perhaps more than a year at home, it can be hard to choose, but Spain has both. Start in Barcelona at the smart Nobu Hotel for the sights and history, before hopping to Mallorca and checking into the El Llorenç Parc de la Mar for rooftop views and gin-clear waters.

What to do : As well as switching to a tapas-only diet, we recommend hiring a car to drive the coastal paths of Mallorca . Make a stop at Es Pontàs, a natural arch in the south-eastern part of the island, in time for sunset.

Spain confirms Covid entry requirements will be extended for UK travellers until 15 November

Most popular holiday destination for british tourists has extended its restrictions on third countries including the uk, although a health control form is no longer required for entry.

Spain has dropped its requirement for visitors to complete a health control form for travel to the country as of 20 September.

Meanwhile, the Spain Travel Health portal and mobile app have been mothballed.

However, the country’s other Covid-related entry restrictions for third-country nationals, including British passport-holders, were last week extended until 15 November – meaning they will remain in place for the October half-term break.

The most popular holiday destination for British travellers, Spain has seen arrivals soar this year as previous pandemic restrictions have loosened.

Tourism minister Reyes Maroto said that so far in 2022, tourists have been spending more and staying longer, with visitor numbers reaching 85 per cent of pre-pandemic levels.

The country is aiming to make its tourism sector more sustainable by favouring a higher-value and lower-impact model, moving away from the historic high-density traditions of its coastal resorts.

According to official estimates, more than 30 million international visitors were welcomed in Spain in the first six months of 2022 – a sixfold increase from the same period in 2021.

Spain relaxed entry rules for third-country nationals in May when it lifted its ban on unvaccinated arrivals. A month later, it scrapped all Covid entry restrictions for EU residents.

Many had hoped that it would extend this to all arrivals, so the recent extension will come as a disappointment.

Here is all you need to know about the current restrictions faced by UK travellers heading to Spain.

What do I need to show to enter Spain?

All arrivals aged 12 and over must show proof of being fully vaccinated (including a booster), or a negative Covid test (a PCR taken within 72 hours prior to departure, or an antigen test taken within 24 hours prior to departure).

Proof of recent infection (with an officially recorded PCR test) is also accepted. Spain accepts the NHS Pass as proof of Covid status .

For visitors aged 12 to 17 who have not received a booster, but have received two doses of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a single-dose vaccine, approved by Spain, at least 14 days must have passed since their last dose for them to qualify as fully vaccinated.

Covid: Spain to lift travel restrictions for Brits but it remains on UK government's amber list

ITV News Correspondent Rebecca Barry reports on Spain allowing British tourists for holidays despite it being on the UK's amber list

Spain has said it will add the UK to its list of countries whose residents will not be subject to coronavirus restrictions, despite the UK government urging against non-urgent travel.

From Monday, the Spanish government will allow UK tourists to visit Spain for non-essential travel without needing a negative PCR test or quarantining.

Spain is still on the UK government's amber list , meaning visitors should not travel there unless in some exceptional circumstances.

Tourists returning from Spain will still have to comply with UK government covid restrictions, which include PCR tests and a period of isolation.

Andrea Keller from Rotherham is excited about going to Benidorm this year and says she is no more anxious about travelling abroad than 'going to the supermarket':

What are the rules for people returning from each category on the travel list ?

Green: There is no need to self-isolate. Take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on day two of your arrival in the UK.

Amber: Self-isolate for 10 days, unless you receive a negative result from a test taken at least five days after arrival. Take a pre-departure test, and PCR tests on day two and day eight of your arrival in the UK.

Red: Spend 10 days in a quarantine hotel. Take a pre-departure test, and PCR tests on day two and day eight of your arrival in the UK.

Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said the country, which also added Japan to the list, was "delighted to receive British tourists". He added: "From June 7, tourists from other countries with which there is not complete free movement, among which is the United States, will be able to enter Spain provided they count on a certificate showing they have received their full [Covid-19] vaccinations.”

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez makes the announcement

Spain is a hotspot for British tourists with the ONS figures showing there were 18.1 million visits by UK residents to the country in 2019 .

The relaxation comes after EU ambassadors backed plans to allow vaccinated UK holidaymakers to visit the bloc this summer.

Covid in summer 2024 - symptoms, testing and what to do if you have it

The number of people catching the coronavirus has jumped in recent weeks - but what are the rules around testing and self-isolating if you or your family are affected

Covid-19 test

  • 15:56, 3 Jul 2024
  • Updated 16:48, 3 Jul 2024

The number of people catching Covid has soared by a third in recent weeks. Latest figures from the UK Health Security Agency show that in the week running up to June 19, 2024, there were 2,815 confirmed cases in England - up by 33.5%.

And with minimum testing for the virus this means the figures could be significantly higher. Many of these are from a new group of variants known as FLiRT - coming from the JN.1 variant which is a sub-variant of the omicron strain.

Since the height of the pandemic the virus has been constantly changing - and along with it the symptoms as well as the testing and self-isolating rules. And far from the start when people had to stay away from others for at least 14 days many people are now treating it the same as any other bug and often behaving as usual.

While the strict rules have now gone there are however guidelines in place. So what are the current symptoms in summer 2024 and what should you do if you believe you have caught the virus?

According to the NHS Covid-19 symptoms in 2024 can include:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • feeling sick or being sick

The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu. Most people feel better within a few weeks, but it can take longer to recover.

However, for some people, it can be a more serious illness. This can mean that their symptoms last longer.

What to do if you have Covid-19 symptoms

The NHS advises people should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you or your child has symptoms and either:

  • have a high temperature
  • do not feel well enough to go to work, school, childcare, or do your normal activities

You can go back to your normal activities when you feel better or do not have a high temperature. If your child has mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or mild cough, and they feel well enough, they can go to school or childcare.

While treatment for Covid-19 isn't always possible there are things you can do to ease the symptoms.

You should:

get lots of rest

drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration (your pee should be light yellow or clear)

take paracetamol or ibuprofen if you feel uncomfortable

try having a teaspoon of honey if you have a cough – do not give honey to babies under 12 months

try turning the heating down or opening a window to help with breathlessness

breathe slowly in through your nose and out through your mouth, with your lips together like you're gently blowing out a candle

sit upright in a chair to help with breathlessness

relax your shoulders, so you're not hunched to help with breathlessness

lean forward slightly – support yourself by putting your hands on your knees or on something stable like a chair to help with breathlessness

You should not:

lie on your back if you have a cough – lie on your side or sit upright instead

use a fan to cool your room as it may spread the virus

panic if you're feeling breathless – this can make it worse

What to do if you have tested positive

You are no longer required to do a Covid-19 rapid lateral flow test if you have symptoms. However, if you or your child have tested positive for Covid-19:

  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days after the day the test was taken if you or your child are under 18 years old – children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults
  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days after the day you take your test if you are 18 years old or over
  • avoid meeting people who are more likely to get seriously ill from viruses, such as people with a weakened immune system, for 10 days after the day you took your test

Who can get a free lateral flow Covid test?

Covid-19 rapid lateral flow tests are no longer free for most people. However, you may still be able to get free Covid-19 rapid lateral flow tests from the NHS if you:

  • have a health condition which means you're eligible for Covid-19 treatment
  • work in healthcare settings or in a hospice

If you want to get tested but are not eligible for free rapid lateral flow tests, you need to pay for the test yourself. You can buy rapid lateral flow tests from some pharmacies and retailers, in person or online.

A mum who flew 9,000 miles to Turkey to have four surgeries all at once says it was "worth it" despite being "more painful than giving birth". Brittany Barkway, 26, wanted to have a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), liposuction, tummy tuck and breast lift with implants after feeling "unhappy" with her postpartum body. She decided to fly to Istanbul, Turkey, as the cost for just a BBL in Australia was $30,000 AUD alone. Brittany was also able to find a surgeon who would do all the procedures she wanted at once for just $18,000 AUD - including flights. She flew out to have the 11-hour surgery on April 30, 2024, and said the recovery was "more painful than giving birth". Two months on, Brittany said 60 per cent of the swelling has gone done and she couldn't be happier with the results.

UK tourists in Turkey 'may be told to leave' after Foreign Office warning

U K tourists in Turkey have been warned that they may be asked to leave their accommodation after weeks of extremely high temperatures in the country. Wildfires have broken out in southeast Turkey after temperatures tipped 40C.

Several parts of Europe including Greece, Italy, Portugal and Turkey have been hit by unusually-high temperatures since the start of the summer as more Brits travel to the continent for their holidays.

The British Foreign Office recently updated its travel advice for Turkey to include advice on 'extreme weather' and wildfires. Holidaymakers visiting Turkey this summer have been directed to NHS advice for coping during hot weather, which urges people to stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm when the sunshine is at its hottest.

The NHS also advises to avoid alcohol, caffeine and hot drinks when it's hot outside and to take a cool shower or put cool water on your skin or clothes to cool down. Older people, those with serious or long-term illnesses, people on multiple medications and babies are among the vulnerable groups most at risk of suffering from heat-related illnesses.

The Foreign Office warned holidaymakers that 'extreme temperatures' can affect many areas of Turkey over the course of the summer. It also shared information about wildfires and warned travellers about potential evacuations.

The official advice reads: "Wildfires happen frequently in Turkey during summer. You could get a fine or prison sentence for lighting a fire of any kind or discarding cigarettes in risk areas such as woodland. Barbecues are prohibited in these areas.

"If there is a wildfire in your area, local authorities may tell you to leave your accommodation. Follow the directions of local authorities. If you see a wildfire, call emergency services on 112."

Passengers to US government: Air travel is getting worse

Complaints to US government from travellers are the highest since the COVID pandemic when airlines were slow to refund.

Passengers wait for flights to resume in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, US

Air travel got more miserable last year, if the number of consumer complaints filed with the United States government is any measure.

The Department of Transportation said Friday that it received nearly 97,000 complaints in 2023, up from about 86,000 the year before. The department said there were so many complaints that it took until July to sort through the filings and compile the figures.

That’s the highest number of consumer complaints about airlines since 2020, when airlines were slow to give customers refunds after the coronavirus pandemic shut down air travel.

The increase in complaints came even as airlines cancelled far fewer US flights — 116,700, or 1.2 percent of the total, last year, compared with about 210,500, or 2.3 percent, in 2022, according to FlightAware data. However, delays remained stubbornly high last year, at about 21 percent of all flights.

More than two-thirds of all complaints last year dealt with US airlines, but a quarter covered foreign airlines. Most of the rest were about travel agents and tour operators.

Complaints about treating passengers with disabilities rose by more than one-fourth compared with 2022. Complaints of discrimination, while small in number, also rose sharply. Most were about race or national origin.

Airlines receive many more complaints from travellers who do not know how or do not bother to complain to the government, but the carriers do not release those numbers.

The Transportation Department is modernising its complaint-taking system, which the agency says will help it do a better job overseeing the airline industry. However, the department currently releases complaint numbers many months late. It did not issue figures for the second half of 2023 until Friday.

Latest Spain Covid travel rules with restrictions still in force ahead of half term holidays

Holidaymakers travelling to Spain this half term need to be aware of the Covid entry requirements that still remain in force.

While most European hotspots have scrapped Covid rules, Spain has kept some of its entry requirements. Until at least November 15, unvaccinated arrivals must show evidence they have recovered from Covid-19 within the last six months or proof of a negative PCR or antigen test.

If you're fully jabbed, then you're free from testing requirements. However, if your second vaccine was more than 270 days ago, you must have evidence you've been given a booster to enter.

You may be subject to additional measures at the point of entry including a temperature check, visual health assessment, or testing on arrival. Children under the age of 12 are free from any testing or vaccination requirements, reports The Mirror .

Unlike in the UK - where mask wearing now seems like a distant memory - face coverings continue to be mandatory for anyone aged over six on public transport, in pharmacies, medical centres and care homes. Since rolling out the vaccine over the past year and a half, Spain has kept a relatively low coronavirus case and death rate.

Around 2,000 new infections are recorded each day, and around 50 people are dying each day on average. In the UK those figures are bumped up to around 5,000 cases daily, with a similar number of deaths.

Before travelling to Spain, make sure you check the government's entry requirements thoroughly here . Spain is not the only holiday hotspot to have kept its coronavirus rules in place, although most have less stringent versions of the restrictions they installed at the start of the pandemic.

For example, there are no longer any requirements to get tested before entering the US, but you must show that you're jabbed if you're over 18. The UK’s NHS Covid Pass, showing two or more jabs, is accepted as proof.

Spain vs Germany LIVE! Euro 2024 result, match stream, latest updates after extra-time drama

Spain vs Germany LIVE!

The Euro 2024 quarter-finals began with an absolute thriller in Stuttgart on Friday night. Mikel Merino ’s last-gasp extra-time header sealed the most dramatic 2-1 victory for Spain that sends them into Tuesday evening’s first semi-final tie in Munich, where they will face either France or Portugal, who meet in a second heavyweight blockbuster in Hamburg.

Germany have become the first host nation ever to be eliminated in the quarter-finals of a European Championship, despite Florian Wirtz popping up in the 89th minute with a dramatic goal of his own to force extra time. Spain thought they were heading through in normal time after substitute Dani Olmo confidently slotted home an assist from teenage sensation Lamine Yamal early in the second half.

Niclas Fullkrug went so close to an equaliser for Germany to force a penalty shootout that had looked a near certainty just seconds before, with Dani Carvajal then sent off for a second bookable offence. He will now miss the semi-finals along with likely the injured Pedri - forced off after mere minutes on Friday following a heavy challenge from the retiring Toni Kroos - and fellow suspended duo Alvaro Morata and Robin Le Normand. Follow Spain vs Germany updates live below!

Spain vs Germany highlights

Live updates

Heartbreaking farewell for retiring Toni Kroos

Scenes of utter jubilation among the Spain players after the final whistle and total despair for Germany’s stars, coaches and fans, magnified times 10 of course by it being their home tournament.

A heartbreaking end to the glorious career of Toni Kroos, too. What a legend.

Watch: Last-gasp Merino sends Spain into semi-finals

A moment that will live long in Spanish football history, especially if they go on to win these Euros...

Spain 2-1 Germany

End of extra time

Germany become the first host nation ever to be knocked out of the European Championship at the quarter-final stage - heartbreak in Stuttgart and across the nation.

Mikel Merino the last-gasp extra-time hero for Spain, who progress through to face either France or Portugal in the first semi-final tie in Munich on Tuesday night.

What a game! I need a lie-down...

125 mins: Carvajal drags down Musiala by the neck and receives his second yellow - he’s off.

He was suspended for the semi-finals anyway of course.

Germany with one more chance to send the ball in... but Simon gathers! It’s all over!

122 mins: Fullkrug misses a glorious last-gasp chance for Germany to force penalties!

120 mins: Only one minute of added time signalled.

Germany push for another last-gasp leveller but Kimmich’s strike is blocked.

Torres then can’t score on the break for Spain!

You can’t take your eyes off this.

Morata and Ruiz booked during Spain’s celebrations - the captain will miss the semi-finals too.

GOAL! Spain 2-1 Germany | Mikel Merino 119'

119 mins: SPAIN HAVE SURELY WON IT AT THE DEATH!

Cucurella switches play nicely and finds Olmo, whose pinpoint cross is headed in brilliantly by Merino.

Germany are absolutely stunned. Just 70 seconds to go...

Spain 1-1 Germany

117 mins: A massive, massive save from Unai Simon to keep out Fullkrug’s glancing header!

Nacho now back on his feet after going down very cheaply indeed after a very small coming together with Wirtz.

114 mins: Apparently Germany substitute Deniz Undav was the man on the bench booked by Anthony Taylor a little while ago.

How many bookings is that in total now? I make it 13.

112 mins: Oyarzabal tries to bend a low shot into the bottom corner but it goes well wide. Neuer had that covered.

Kroos now down for Germany and receiving treatment. Maybe a touch of cramp.

UK election latest: New cabinet in place - but 'shock' as PM Keir Starmer snubs senior figure

Sir Keir Starmer has named the bulk of his cabinet, with Rachel Reeves the first female chancellor. Rishi Sunak said "sorry" to voters as he resigned as Tory leader. His party endured a torrid election night, with the Lib Dems (71 seats) and Reform (five seats) making big strides.

If you didn't manage to stay up, we've collected the key moments from a dramatic election night in the video below.

They include the first result to be declared, the first Tory to lose to a Labour candidate, and the cabinet ministers who lost their seats.

Plus Rishi Sunak's admission of defeat, and Sir Keir Starmer's victory speech.

Watch it all unfold below...

Politics is showbusiness for ugly people - according to the crude and perhaps unfair saying by American political consultant Paul Begala.

However, occasionally famous faces from the world of entertainment and sport do cross over into the ruthless, back-stabbing world of politics.

Sometimes they are hugely successful - just look at the case of the late US actor Ronald Reagan or former Pakistani cricket star Imran Khan, who both ended up running their respective countries.

In the UK, former actress Glenda Jackson, ex-GMTV presenter Esther McVey and Olympic gold medallist Sebastian Coe are among those who have switched careers in the spotlight to become MPs.

However, this time around, the story was mostly one of failure for the celebrities - and sort-of celebrities - who ran in the 2024 UK general election...

Read more from our reporter Daniel Binns below...

US secretary of state Antony Blinken has held a call with the UK's new Foreign Secretary David Lammy this evening.

During the call, the US official congratulated Mr Lammy for his appointment, spokesperson Matthew Miller said.

Mr Miller said: "The pair emphasised the enduring and essential importance of the US-UK special relationship in addressing the most pressing global challenges, including reaching an immediate and enduring ceasefire in Gaza, and supporting Ukraine against Russia's brutal aggression.

"The secretary noted that he looks forward to welcoming the foreign secretary to the NATO summit in Washington next week."

Labour MP Jess Phillips is back with Beth and Ruth to un-pick the election results. 

On this episode they discuss how Jess was heckled when she narrowly held her seat of Birmingham Yardley. 

They also look at the wider Labour results and talk about Rishi Sunak’s resignation speech, as well as discussing why Reform and the Liberal Democrats took seats from the two main parties.

Email Beth, Ruth, and Jess at [email protected] , post on X to @BethRigby, or send a WhatsApp voice note on 07934 200 444.

Sir Keir Starmer and Irish premier Simon Harris have committed to reset and strengthen Anglo-Irish relations "with urgency and ambition".

The taoiseach "warmly congratulated" Sir Keir on his appointment as prime minister and said he looked forward to a "close and constructive" working relationship.

He also accepted an invite to visit Downing Street on 17 July.

"The taoiseach and the prime minister spoke of their shared determination to reset and strengthen the bilateral relationship between Ireland and the United Kingdom and to set about that task with urgency and ambition," a statement said.

"They discussed Northern Ireland, welcoming the restoration of the institutions, including the full operation of North-South and East-West Good Friday Agreement institutions, as well as legacy issues."

Northern Ireland First Minister Michelle O'Neill and Deputy First Minister Emma Little-Pengelly also spoke to Sir Keir by phone and congratulated him.

Some of Sir Keir Starmer's appointments have come as a surprise this evening - not least Timpson's chief executive James Timpson becoming minister for prisons parole and probation. 

The business leader is also chair of the Prison Reform Trust and has a history of employing ex-convicts within his company. 

The prime minister also appointed Sir Patrick Vallance - a household name during the COVID pandemic - as minister for science, and human rights lawyer Richard Hermer KC as attorney general. 

In effect, he appears to be choosing experts in their fields - but how could they be appointed without being elected as MPs? 

Essentially, the prime minister has the power to appoint anyone as a minister if they first make them a peer in the House of Lords. 

A similar tactic was used by Rishi Sunak to bring back former prime minister David Cameron to fill the role of foreign secretary. 

Sir Keir Starmer's declaration a few days ago that he would clock off at 6pm on Fridays to spend time with his family was derided by Conservatives. 

But Labour peer and former home secretary Lord Blunkett - someone who himself has experience in government - tells Sky News that Gordon Brown used to work 18-hour days, seven days a week, and it "didn't work". 

'Let go of the reins'

He says this caused a "massive log jam in decision-making", and that Sir Keir could quickly face problems with "getting momentum and energy back into government". 

Lord Blunkett says it's time for Sir Keir to "let go of the reins a bit", appoint a cabinet and "let them get on with it". 

He argues that without this decentralisation, the government could "ground to a standstill". 

The Labour leader could also face difficulties with the number of new MPs he has, Lord Blunkett says. 

It will be a "substantial challenge" and they must feel "they've got a part to play", he says. 

If you want to find out who your MP is now, you can search for your constituency in our article below. 

Only one constituency - Inverness, Skye and West Ross - is yet to declare. 

Number 10 has released pictures of Sir Keir Starmer with his newly appointed cabinet.

Boris Johnson has described Labour's landslide victory as an  "atomic bomb that has detonated over the British political landscape".

In a piece for the Daily Mail , the former prime minister said "our worst fears have been realised" and "matters have developed".

He said the Tories had allowed Sir Keir Starmer - "a glottaly challenged north London lawyer" to lead Labour to one of their biggest victories ever and "too many good former colleagues have lost their seats in a cull that has been in many ways unjust".

"It has been miserable to watch, and it has taken me some time to rouse myself from the sofa and get to the keyboard to compose my thoughts," he said.

Mr Johnson said his prayers were now with the 121 "Tory survivors" who were the "bedraggled remnants of the explosion" and whose role was not to "hold this Starmergeddon majority to account".

On Nigel Farage, he said the "cheroot-puffing Pied Piper of Clacton" had "played a significant part" in the "destruction of the Tory government". 

He went on to say "Labour's majority is built on sand" and if the past five years proved anything it was that "the electorate can flip over a seemingly impregnable position, as a child demolishes a fortress of Lego".
