Spain announces when you can travel there without restrictions

It could be sooner than you might think when it comes to travelling to Spain without coronavirus restrictions in place.

The European country is currently off the UK travel corridor, which means those arriving back in the UK must self-isolate.

The Canary Islands is excluded from this, which doesn’t require mandatory quarantine.

But in order to entry Spain and its islands, sun seekers have to present a negative coronavirus test no more than 72 hours before jetting off.

Now, In a bid to boost visitor numbers after the devastating impact of restrictions during the pandemic, Spanish tourism authorities have launched a huge drive to lure holidaymakers back to the country – and to reassure them it’s safe to visit.

The campaign, costing €2million, is aiming to drive visitors back to the holiday destination and currently looks set to welcome the first visitors without restrictions by the end of March 2021.

Travel Safe will be a dedicated section – updated daily – on the spain.info website containing measures from individual regions, including restaurant capacities and leisure deals.

The Turespaña strategy – a huge marketing push aimed at increasing tourism – will continue while coronavirus restrictions remain.

Balearic tourism minister, Iago Negueruela, says the campaign aimed to have tourists visiting as soon as possible after the pandemic had been controlled, the MEN reports.

Now the hope is that restrictions will not be needed by spring 2021, with the Balearic Islands expected to be the first to welcome restriction-free travel.
