Spain is now open to vaccinated travellers from across the world. It recently issued a statement, and is hoping that tourist inflow will help the country revive its tourism sector, which suffered a huge jolt due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Spain Health Minister Carolina Darias insisted that Spain is now a safe destination, and added that the country is in the process of reclaiming its global leadership in tourism. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom, which is a lucrative tourism market for Spain, has not yet removed it from its list of at-risk countries. Referring to this, the Health Minister added that it is disappointing to see that British are still keeping Spain on its amber list.

Reports have it that non-vaccinated Europeans, who were allowed to enter Spain with a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours, will now be able to take a cheaper antigen test instead.

Reportedly, Spain will also start allowing cruise boats to operate. According to the reports, with the latest announcement, Malaga airport is expected to witness several flights from around Europe, such as Lille, Berlin, France, and London.

As per the reports, Spain had been making all the efforts, and taken several measures to lure British tourists, and it needs to be seen if Britain also extends support in a likewise gesture.

Spain’s economy is heavily dependent on tourism, and it was one of the Western economies that was worst hit by the pandemic. In such a scenario, Spain is hoping that with the arrival of tourists, it will be able to revive its economy and tourism industry.
