Brits could be allowed to holiday in Spain amid plans of a “vaccine passport” as the two countries both have high vaccination rates.
The Spanish tourism chief, Fernando Valdes, told The Sun newspaper, that the UK has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, and at least 70% of Spaniards could be “immune by summer” as the country rolls out jabs.
Valdes added, “I’d say to British people, ‘Keep open your expectations regarding holidays in Spain. We’re looking forward to welcoming you again’.”
Under reported plans, the travel strategy would include a “vaccine passport or similar documentation,” whilst face mask and social distancing will be maintained, and Brits would not have to quarantine on arrival, but could have to test negative prior to travel.
The Spanish tourism chief said, “We’re going to keep all these measures as long as necessary to let tourism recover gradually and as the pandemic evolves.
“New vaccines approved by the European Authority will give us the necessary impulse to achieve our plan.”
