Spain is now open to all vaccinated travellers from around the world. The country is trying to revive the tourism sector that was badly hit due to the coronavirus pandemic. The summer months are big tourist draw and Spain is hoping to capitalise on it this year.
Spain’s Health Minister Carolina Darias has deemed the country safe, but Spain still remains on the amber list of many other countries. The UK, for instance, makes a big portion of Spain’s travellers, but the country has left Spain on the amber list, which means that it is not recommended for travel just yet.
Spain will also allow cruise boats to start again. Also, Malaga airport will start flights from Berlin, Lille, and London in an effort to boost the tourism sector.
Un-vaccinated travellers needn’t take the more expensive RT-PCR test 72 hours prior to flying. A cheaper antigen test will now to enough to enter Spain.
All these efforts are to attract British travellers, who make up the major part of the tourist market in Spain. It is yet to noted if the UK will respond by bumping up Spain to its green list.
