With the decline in coronavirus cases and the ease of lockdown in the country, the Spanish Government has said as from June 30th people travelling from outside of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen area will be able to visit Spain.
According to thelocal.es, the decision reopen its borders followed the EU’s recommendation for member states to gradually reopen their borders from June 15th onwards.
Tourists from the USA and Canada, Latin America, Africa, Oceania and Asia will in theory be able to book their holidays to Spain from that day, although the announcement published in Spain’s daily government bulletin states that restrictions on holidaymakers from outside of the EU and Schengen area have been extended until midnight on June 30th rather than explicitly announcing that international tourism is fully restarting.
The news comes two days after Spain opened its borders to tourists from all other Schengen and EU countries as well as the UK, without the previous requirement for new arrivals to spend 14 days in quarantine.
The only exception is neighbouring Portugal, for which the land border will remain closed until July 1st.
