The Spanish Prime Minister has announced that borders will reopen on the 22nd June, allowing for the return of tourists from within Europe and the Schengen area.  Pedro Sanchez confirmed that international travel is being brought forward from the original date of the 1st July to the 22nd June, in a bid to kick start the areas of the economy which are reliant on tourism.

Embassy Tweet

The British Embassy in Madrid has just tweeted from it’s official account that the Spanish government has confirmed that the UK is included in the countries whose citizens will be allowed to enter Spain.


The news is being met with scepticism by some expats on the Costa Del Sol.  Mary Proctor in Torremolinos believes it is too soon to allow British tourists into Spain.  “The UK has got it all wrong with this virus, and they are so far behind Spain in terms of recovery.  To allow them back in now, after they spent this weekend rioting and demonstrating, could be a disaster.  It would undo all the hard work that Spain has put into getting on top of the virus”.
