From July, Spain will be open to overseas tourists
It has been reported by media outlets that the Prime Minister of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, has announced that Spain will reopen to tourists from July. He was speaking after a demonstration on Saturday organised by the far-right Vox party to protest over the government’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Vox, the third-largest party in the Spanish parliament, had urged people to create cavalcades of slow-moving cars and motorcycles to show their displeasure.
Sánchez said on TV: “As you know, Spain receives more than 80 million visitors a year. I am announcing that from July, Spain will reopen for foreign tourism in conditions of safety. Foreign tourists can also start planning their holidays in our country. Spain needs tourism, and tourism needs safety in both origin and destination. We will guarantee that tourists will not run any risks, nor will they bring any risk to our country. We’re sending everyone a message today: Spain will be waiting for you from July”.
He said the central and regional governments had been planning and coordinating the return to tourism for weeks and also called on Spaniards to begin planning domestic holidays.
Ibiza, as well as the rest of Spain, is currently in the second phase of a four-stage de-escalation plan. If infection rates continue to decrease, the island could be opened to tourists by June 22. There will be capacity restrictions in place throughout the island, in restaurants, clubs, and discos which will have them operating at about a third of their previous maximum capacity.
