Following a pilot trial of digital health certificates at all 46 Spanish airports in May, Spain will be ready to welcome visitors from June, giving hope to many British holidaymakers.
Spain’s tourism minister Fernando Valdes Verelst told a travel and tourism conference in Mexico: “I think the best thing that governments right now can provide to travellers is certainty, give the proper information and the security that they can travel and they can come back to the countries.”
Additionally, Portugal has signalled travellers could be welcomed from the middle of May.
Asked when the country will be opening its borders to tourists”Portugal’s ambassador to the UK, Manuel Lobo Antunes, told Sky News: “As soon as possible, this is not just a unilateral matter, we have to coordinate this issue with our British friends and the UK government.”
Details of which destinations people might be allowed to visit without self-isolating on their return are yet to be released.
