Spain announces it will reopen its borders to EU states, the UK included, on June 21
Travellers from the Schengen area (apart from Portugal) will soon be able to enter Spain once again, and those from outside Schengen will be allowed to enter from July 1, providing there is a reciprocal agreement on travel and taking into account the situation of the pandemic in the country of origin at the time.
During his weekly video conference, Pedro Sánchez announced on Sunday that the country will reopen its borders on June 21. The exception being Portugal, which will wait until July 1, on the request of the Portuguese government.
The United Kingdom is still being considered an EU member state, given that it is still in a transition. This means that UK travellers will also be able to enter Spain from June 21. This does not, however, mean that a change is impossible, should the situation in Britain shift again.
Travellers from outside the European Union and the Schengen free-travel area will be permitted to enter Spain from July 1, the prime minister explained, so long as there is a reciprocal agreement on travel and taking into account factors of each country health-wise.
Pedro Sánchez also announced on Sunday that from June 21, travellers arriving in the country will no longer be required to stay in quarantine for two weeks.
