​Brits Will Be Allowed To Enter Spain Without Having To Quarantine

​Brits Will Be Allowed To Enter Spain Without Having To Quarantine

Brits travelling to Spain will be allowed to enter the country without having to go into a lengthy period of quarantine, its government has said.

British tourists will be permitted to enter Spain from Sunday, and will not be made to spend two weeks quarantining - as travellers must do in some other countries, like the UK.

Arancha Gonzalez Laya, Spain's foreign minister, told the BBC: "We will allow British visitors to enter Spain just like the rest of the European Union or Schengen area from 21 June freely and without the need for the quarantine."

Spain will open its border with Portugal on 1 July.

Ending its coronavirus state of emergency on Sunday, Spain will be opening up its borders to EU and Schengen area countries, in a bid to give its tourism sector a much-needed boost.

According to Reuters, Britons account for more than a fifth of the 80 million or so tourists Spain receives each year.

Gonzalez Laya said it would be opening its country 'out of respect for the 400,000 British citizens who have second residences in Spain' and who are 'dying to benefit' from them.

The foreign minister explained that British visitors would be subject to the same 'triple check' as other European visitors, meaning they must provide their origin, temperature and contact details in case they need to be traced.

A spokesperson for the British government confirmed the official position on people having to quarantine as they enter the UK remains unchanged.

"International travel corridors remain an option under consideration by the UK government, not established policy," the spokesman said.

"Conversations take place regularly with governments around the world on a whole range of issues and we will not be providing any further details at this stage."

The Foreign Office is also still advising against all non-essential travel, which may affect people's attitude towards travelling to Spain.

According to the BBC, it is understood the UK's quarantine restrictions will be reviewed on 29 June.
