Spain plans to open borders from March 2021

Spain plans to open borders to tourists without testing negative for COVID-19 from March 2021. Such innovations will take effect with the support of the Safe Travel campaign.

At the moment, only certain categories of citizens can enter Spain. Also, to cross the Spanish border, a negative coronavirus test is required, taken 72 hours before the trip. The authorities expect the cancellation of these measures before the beginning of spring to normalize the tourism sector in the country.

To attract travelers, Spain’s National Travel Agency Turespaña is launching the Safe Travel Campaign. Tourists will be informed about the latest news and given recommendations on safety measures during a pandemic.

“With this campaign, we want to identify the Spain tourism brand as an influencing factor in travel safety and contribute to the confidence of tourists who come back to our country,” said Miguel Sanz, Director General of the National Tourism Board.

A new section for the campaign will appear on the website, which will publish data on restrictions in the country, features of the work of restaurants, as well as an interactive map of Spain with detailed information on the fight against coronavirus. The estimated cost of the campaign is € 2 million. Most likely, it will act along with the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

This is reported by The Village with reference to The Local.

We also recall that the low-cost airline Wizz Air plans to resume flights from Kiev, Lviv and Kharkov to 10 European countries in December 2020.

You can find out where you can fly now and what travel restrictions are in effect in our new section “Restrictions”. There you can also subscribe to notifications about changes in the regime of entry to the country of interest or in all directions.
