Spain has confirmed that it will allow British holidaymakers to travel to the country by June.
According to the Telegraph, the Spanish tourism minister, Fernando Valdes Verelst, said that a digital health pass will allow people travel to Spain for holidays this summer.
At the moment, digital proof of a negative test, vaccination or immunity will likely be required to enter foreign countries and Mr Verelst said that Spain was pushing for the UK’s proposed pass to be “mutually recognised”.
It is not known whether Spain will be on the UK government’s ‘green list’ when the traffic light system for travel begins on the 17th May as it currently has high infection rates and due to its current vaccination progress. Mr Verelst said that Spain, however, could introduce a ‘green’ corridor for vaccinated British holidaymakers as a way to boost its tourism.
Spain is the most popular holiday destination for those living in the UK according to the Telegraph, with 17.4 million people visiting from the UK in 2019.
What is known, is that in order to travel to countries that are on the UK governments ‘green list’, holiday makers will need to provide proof of a negative Covid test within 72 hours of departing the UK and again on arrival back in the UK.
