When foreign holidays resume British tourists who want to holiday in Gibraltar will not be required to produce a Covid test with the expensive PCR test.
Gibraltar’s Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo said the Rock offers a “great British staycation in the Mediterranean,” once travel resumes.
Picardo told Sky News, “Gibraltar has an open frontier with Spain and the rest of the European Union, and we don’t require PCR testing for those who come across our land frontier.
“We therefore don’t think it would be appropriate for us to require PCR testing of those who are coming from the United Kingdom, which has a higher vaccinated population and a lower incidence of Covid than the rest of the European Union.
“When you’re coming to Gibraltar you’re coming to a part of Britain, and therefore you’re going to be very welcome here without the need for a PCR test.
“It’s thanks to the United Kingdom Government that Gibraltar can proudly say that all of our adult population is now vaccinated.
“Gibraltar has zero cases of Covid today.”
