Visitors Return to Spain Without Quarantine

Spain has formally declared the end of its three-month state of emergency and reopened borders to EU countries and those within the Schengen area.


Visitors from outside these areas will be allowed back into Spain, the second-most visited country in the world, from July 1. Portugal will also open its land border with the country on the same day.


Tourism is one of the biggest industries in Spain and the government is understandably trying to reinvigorate the sector as soon as possible. Earlier this week a £3.9bn plan was unveiled designed to restore confidence in the country as a safe destination for travellers - now it has been revealed that British visitors will be exempt from any quarantine measures.


At the weekend, the Spanish government announced that visitors from the UK would not need to undergo 14-days of self-isolation with the foreign minister stating, “We will allow British visitors to enter Spain just like the rest of the European Union as from 21 June, freely and without the need for a quarantine,”.


The foreign minister continued by stating she hoped the British government would reciprocate and allow the “250,000 Spaniards living in the UK” to enter the country again without having to observe quarantine. It is understood talks of “air bridges” are taking place between the UK and several countries, but nothing has yet been set in stone.


Spain’s quarantine measures for those visiting the country disappeared on Saturday when the state of emergency ended. Those entering the country now will have their temperatures taken at the airport, undergo visual assessment and will have to provide their contact details.
