Portugal, Spain and Cyprus could welcome British holidaymakers from May, following a lifting of restrictions.
From 17 May travel restrictions could be lifted in England and if Brits can prove they have had their vaccinations, then some Spanish islands, Cyprus and Portugal will open their borders.
Currently no one is allowed to travel to these destinations as it is illegal under the Prime Minister’s lockdown rules.
Portugal’s Tourism Minister, Rita Marques said, she hopes that her country could soon open its borders to tourists who have either been vaccinated or tested negative.
Marques said, “I do believe that Portugal will soon allow restriction-free travel, not only for vaccinated people, but those who are immune or who test negative.
“We hope to welcome British tourists from 17 May.”
Brits could also be allowed to travel to the Canary and Balearic Islands, only if they test negative for the virus, the Spanish government suggested.
Whilst the Cypriot government will welcome tourists only if they have received both doses of the vaccine.
