Only thing is, depending on where you come from, you may well have some form of quarantine / self-isolation when you return home.
If you are allowed into Spain in the first place ...." Spain needs tourism, and tourism needs safety in both origin and destination. We will guarantee that tourists will not run any risks, nor will they bring any risk to our country.”
I think a healthy degree of skepticism is advised whenever anyone offers a "guarantee" about risks.
The UK is to introduce a 14 day quarantine period, beginning on June 8th, for all visitors coming into Britain. There will be no exemptions for EU residents, during the first three weeks, then the situation will be reviewed.
If this is Britain's ongoing position then I feel that Spain and other EU countries will reciprocate.
We may have to look to July and August before we see something more positive.
Spain is not reintroducing international travel until 1 July, (aside from a possible pilot scheme in the Balearics and Canarias from 21 June).
Plenty of time for a total U turn or modification by the U.K. government. Barcelona has visitors from across the world, so probably won’t notice a few less from the U.K.
Not positive, sorry ...
Apparently yesterday the Spanish Health Minister said that the UK would NOT be on the first list of those countries who will be allowed access to Spain following the de-escalation of travel restrictions. Of course the situation can change from day to day - even hour by hour!
Ms Patel, the UK Home Secretary, yesterday afternoon outlined the proposed quarantine restrictions to be placed on those coming into the UK, without exceptions for anyone from any EU countries. The UK quarantine restriction will be reviewed in three weeks time, and not unnaturally have been condemned by Airlines.
Hi. Can you give a link to the source please, as there has been a misquoted story from the tourist minister. Not seen anything from Minister Illa, but might have missed it. Thanks in advance.
Apologies for not having a source. If I am wrong then I apologise again.
No worries. The info coming out of Spain is ceasing to have any credulity.
This morning, the minister for tourism stated that from the 22 June, the borders with Portugal and France would be open. This came as something of a surprise to the Prime minister of Portugal. Two hours later the Moncloa issued a statement correcting the tourism minister and reiterating that borders would not open until 1 July.
At the same time, autonomous communities are no longer allowed to publish their own data on deaths or new infections as it has become clear that local figures are higher than those published by the ministry of health.
This from a socialist government!
