Spanish authorities have confirmed that British holidaymakers will be allowed in to Spain from June with a vaccine passport.
The British government will allow international travel to resume in England from 17 May under the Prime Minister’s roadmap out of lockdown.
Spanish Tourism Minister Fernando Valdes Verelst confirmed, “June will be the start of the recovery of tourism in Spain.
“By then, we will have a digital vaccination certificate in place and we will be able to reopen our borders.”
The Sun newspaper reported that Spain will strart to trial digital passports with their own citizens nxt month, which will help to prepare UK tourists to holiday in the country from June.
Verelst added, “We are having close conversations with UK authorities and we are exchanging information on Spain’s digital system and the trial happening at our airports in May.”
However, the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Brits will have to wait and see if the government will permit travel to Spain.
Shapps told Times Radio, “Spain specifically, I’m afraid I just don’t have the answer to that because the Joint Biosecurity Centre will need to come up with their assessment and we can’t do that until a bit nearer the time.”
