Since the pandemic broke out, tourism was one of the most affected economic areas, this branch of the economy has undergone major changes. Spain is one of the countries that depend on tourism and have found all sorts of ways to reopen the borders for tourists. From June 1, Spain wants to offer foreigners the opportunity to visit, but with certain conditions.
Spain aims to reopen its borders for international tourists starting in June. Fernando Valdés, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Tourism, said at the summit of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) in Mexico that this method was chosen to ensure safe travel for tourists.
Thus, those who have been vaccinated, tested negative or cured by Covid-19 will be able to travel to Spain without any restrictions, provided they prove that they are not a danger to others. In May, Spain will take part in a pilot scheme for the digital certificate and hopes to receive foreign tourists from June.
The Spanish authorities do not rely too much on the vaccination certificate, because people have not yet been vaccinated in large numbers, but they consider it a good alternative. The certificates offer a degree of safety because they will allow tourists to travel if they do not pose a danger to others.
Spain is among the countries severely affected by the pandemic, a figure that has managed to reach a declining trend. About 3.5 million contaminations and 77,855 associated losses have been reported so far.
About 15 million doses have been administered so far in the vaccination campaign, and 4.02 million people have received both doses of the vaccine. The Spanish government said it intends to vaccinate 70 % of the adult population by the end of the summer so that Spaniards can soon return to normal life and resume their former habits.
