Holidaymakers hopes for a holiday in Spain anytime soon have been dashed as the Spanish government could be keeping their borders shut until October.

It is understood the government are considering keeping borders closed until at least the end of October.

Spaniards are currently not allowed to travel between provinces and islands and locals are not allowed to travel abroad.

Reyes Marota, the Minister for Tourism, Commerce and Industry said on Wednesday the Spanish government are yet to announce a date for when the country will reopen.

Marota said they will make a decision in line with the EUs approach, but a time frame has not yet been agreed.

Tenerife have also said that no tourists will be allowed to enter the Island until the end of October, this includes the UK.

With the borders remaining closed this is having a significant impact on tourism and the economy. In 2019 Spain recorded 126m tourists visiting the country, this year’s number will be a lot less over the pandemic.

The 27 EU member states have agreed on the need for an exit plan to help with tourism and the economy.
