Spain reopens to non-EU tourism with limited restrictions from June 1
24 May 2021 @ 22:08

TRAVEL can now restart to Spain – as from tomorrow (Monday, May 24), visitors from 'safe' non-EU countries will be permitted entry without restrictions or requirements other than, according to the latest tweet from the ministry for tourism, the passenger locator form.

These countries include the UK, USA, China and Japan.

It does not necessarily mean British tourists will come flooding back imminently, though: The usual May half-term rush is probably unlikely, since the UK government still has Spain listed as 'amber', meaning travellers from the country or returning from holiday there will be required to quarantine for 10 days and have two PCR tests within that time, which must be negative.

Some discussion is under way in the UK as to whether parents can be fined if they keep their children off school for up to a week and a half after spending half-term in Spain – local authorities have said they will not be, as this would otherwise encourage parents to abandon quarantine and children to go straight back to class, although the British government insists 'nobody' should be travelling to an 'amber' country for 'non-essential reasons', including annual holidays, and that parents 'have a responsibility' to ensure children do not have to miss school through quarantining as a result of 'avoidable circumstances'.

This is despite ongoing campaigning from Spain's government, insisting nowhere in the country is now on 'extreme risk' levels, and in the overwhelming majority of 'typical' British annual holiday destination areas, the incidence of Covid is low or non-existent.

Also, all over-60s in Spain are now fully vaccinated, unless they have been unable to be through having tested positive when they were due for their jabs, or unless they chose not to do so.

It’s not true that all over 60s vaccinated. I only had my first AZ jab last week, I have to wait until August for the 2nd jab and then I will be fully vaccinated. Lots of other over 60s in the same boat through no fault of our own.

This is great news, I'm sure we're all welcoming normality back into our lives.
