(CNN) - The grip of the Delta variant of Covid-19 on the United States and the world continues to have travel ramifications as the summer travel season winds down. Spain is the latest nation to tighten access to its borders.

In a change from policy earlier this summer , Spain is allowing tourists from the United States only if they are fully vaccinated, the health ministry told CNN on Tuesday.

It states that visitors from the United States on so-called "nonessential travel," such as tourism, must show "a vaccination certificate that the (Spanish) Ministry of Health recognizes as valid."

The change affects US citizens and other third-country nationals traveling from the United States to Spain for tourism, the health ministry told CNN.
