Spain plans to reopen borders to foreign tourists from July

More good news, this time from Spain! One of the hardest hit countries by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mediterranean nation is planning to reopen its borders for visitors starting on July 1 without the need of a 14-day quarantine period!

In a tweet this afternoon, Spain’s Foreign Minister Arancha González, announced that the country will gradually open its borders to foreign tourists from July, lifting the 14 day quarantine at the same time.

According to El País, this decision is largely based “on the positive progress of the epidemic in Spain”. While the details are still scarce, it’s possible that, similarly to what is being planned in Greece, there will be given preference to some nationalities in a first phase of reopening:

On Sunday, Finance Minister and government spokesperson María Jesús Montero said during a press conference that Spain would be seeking international consensus on the free movement of travelers “at least” with countries that send the highest number of tourists to the country, such as Portugal, France, the United Kingdom and Germany
