Spain Set To Open Their Borders To British Tourists From June


Spain Set To Open Their Borders To British Tourists From June

Spain is throwing open its doors to British tourists from June.

The country's tourism minister has confirmed people from the UK will be permitted to flock to its warmer climate in just a few months time.

Under the deal agreed to between Britain and Spain, passengers will have to get a digital health pass before they hop on a plane.

Spanish tourism minister Fernando Valdes Verelst said, according to the Sun: "June will be the start of the recovery of tourism in Spain.


"By then, we will have a digital vaccination certificate in place and we will be able to reopen our borders."

It's unclear where the digital health pass will be stored, either on a smartphone or digitally attached to your passport details.

The MP also hopes for Spain to be included on the UK's green list of countries that don't require hotel quarantine when tourists go home.


Mr Valdes Verelst said: "Because of the progress in our vaccine rollout with 22 per cent of our population having had their first dose already, we expect by June to be at the green light.

"We are having close conversations with UK authorities and we are exchanging information on Spain's digital system and the trial happening at our airports in May."

UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps believes the government will have that green, amber and red list within the next few weeks, which will no doubt dictate where many Brits will head for their first holiday in months.

The British government has previously urged their countrymen and women not to think about holidays due to the threat of the pandemic.


However, Mr Shapps revealed they had ditched that thinking.

"For the first time people can start to think about visiting loved ones abroad or perhaps a summer holiday," he said, according to the Sun.

If you end up travelling to a country that manages to land on the coveted green list, you'll still have to undergo a coronavirus test before your flight.


Passengers will also be required to complete a PCR test on day two of returning to the UK.

Some of the countries rumoured to be in the green include Malta, Gibraltar, Iceland, Israel, the Caribbean and the UAE.

Countries on the red list will mean people will have to spend 10 days in hotel quarantine upon their arrival back into the UK, which will cost around £1,750.

There is an in between 'amber' list of countries, which will require a Covid-19 test before getting back to the UK, as well as two more tests once in Britain, and ten days quarantine at home.
