Spain hoping to reopen to tourists in 'late June' as it relaxes coronavirus restrictions

22 / 05 / 2020

Spain hopes to welcome tourists starting in "late June," according to the country's transportation minister.

The government last week introduced a 14-day quarantine period for visitors entering the country, saying it was necessary to avoid a second peak of COVID-19 infections.

José Luis Ábalos now says the two-week quarantine will be phased out and travel restrictions will be gradually lifted.

"From late June, we'll start the tourism activity, I hope," he told the broadcaster TVE, according to Reuters, adding: "We must make Spain an attractive country from the health point of view."

Spain's economy is heavily dependent on tourism, which accounts for 12% of the country's gross domestic product, according to Reuters, and the strict coronavirus-related lockdown means the country is heading for a deep recession.
