Spain bans Brits for summer holidays until ‘mass vaccination’

The Spanish government are keeping their borders closed which means Brits will not be able to holiday in the country until at least the end of summer.

In a meeting at the World Tourism Organisation in Madrid, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said that Spain will only “progressively” allow international tourists once 70% of citizens have had the vaccine.

According to Euro Weekly News, Spain’s trajectory will not be met until the end of the summer, which means Brits will not be allowed to travel to the country.

Speaking on Wednesday, Sanchez said that “only mass vaccination will open the way to the normality we want.”

The country’s tourism sector has been hit with a €106bn loss, and tourism spots such as Costa Blanca, Costa Brava, Costa del Sol and Barcelona are empty of tourists.

Under the new rules Spanish residents are currently allowed to return back from the UK, but only with evidence of a negative test upon arrival.

Spanish Ministers are wanting a “vaccine certificate” which could help to reopen the borders.
