The Spanish government have announced that the borders will be opening to tourism from the middle of next month, it has been reported.
Spain PM Pedro Sanchez, announced in a press conference earlier this Saturday, that those who move forward from phase two to phase three can reopen their borders.
With half of the country moving into phase two from Monday, it is projected that some regions of the country will be able to open their borders to non-Spanish travellers.
Also projected is the opening of the whole country by mid July this year, with hopes of a long summer for tourists and for residents who endured one of the toughest lockdowns in the world.
PM Sanchez stated that the ‘great wave’ of the virus is over and that Spain is ‘one step away from victory’ in it’s bid to over Covid-19 and to get the country running back normally.
He said: ” Spain receives more than 80 million visitors a year and foreign tourists CAN plan their holidays in our country.”
“The time has come to open our country up.”
However, the Spanish government have said that they will only reopen the borders and areas of the country to other provincial residents, aswell as tourists, as long as it is ‘safe to do so.’
