From July 1 Spain will lift quarantine restrictions on tourists as the country looks to get tourism up and running post COVID-19 lockdown
Revising its coronavirus death toll on Monday the European Nation has urged foreign holidaymakers to return from July as it eases one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns
The world’s second-most visited nation closed its doors and beaches in March to handle the COVID-19 pandemic, later imposing a two-week quarantine on any overseas visitors.
That requirement will be lifted on the 1st of July, a Government statement said, however local tourism businesses remain sceptical about salvaging the summer season.
In a tweet with adding emojis of a bikini, sunglasses and a suitcase from the Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya posted “The worst is behind us,”.
“In July we will gradually open Spain to international tourists, lift the quarantine, ensure the highest standards of health safety. We look forward 2 welcoming you!
With little warning the quarantine was introduced on May 15, causing confusion in the tourism industry as well as tension with nation neighbour France.
The government hopes that by lifting restrictions will make up for the earlier communication breakdown and be in a stronger position to attract foreign tourists this summer.
