Spain to reopen to international tourism from July
We are one step away from victory, PM Sanchez claimsEuropost
Spain will reopen to international tourism from July, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Saturday, as the country is slowly emerging from one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns, implemented on 14 March. There will be, however, security measures in destinations and at points of origin.
"Spain needs tourism, and tourism needs security at origin and security at destination, so we will guarantee that tourists will not run any risk or bring risks to our country," the PM said in his weekly address, encouraging the Spanish people to now plan their holidays from late June and hotels and other establishments to reopen.
The plan on allowing foreign tourism will resume comes as the reproduction rate of coronavirus in the country was 0.2%.
"The great wave of the pandemic has been overcome. We are one step away from victory but we must remember that the virus is still lurking and that it is vital not to relax," Sanchez noted.
