New restrictions have been introduced in Andalucia in a bid to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases.
As of this morning at midnight, residents caught entering or exiting another municipality without a good reason will be fined.
This means that those living in the likes of Mijas cannot travel to Marbella and vice versa.
However, if you have a valid reason to travel then you will not be fined. There are a number of reasons that fall under this exception to the rule.
They are as follows:
Assisting health centres, health services and establishments.
Going to work or fulfilling business and legal obligations. Going to university or educational centres, including nursery, are also permitted.
Returning to your habitual home or your family residence.
Assisting or caring for the elderly, minors, dependents, people with disabilities or vulnerable people.
Visiting financial or insurance entities or filling up your car if the closest petrol station is in a neighbouring town.
Urgent or mandatory appointments with public and judicial bodies or the notary.
Renewing permits and documents and other administrative tasks which cannot be postponed.
Taking official exams or tests which cannot be delayed.
