Spain will drop Covid-19 testing for the British as early as May 20, according to reports.
If the UK continues to see coronavirus infection rates plummet and follow the rapid rollout of the vaccine, Britons will not have to go through testing before traveling to Spain.
British holidaymakers will be able to enjoy a summer break in their favorite Spanish destinations if the UK keeps infection rates below 50 per 100,000 population.
The news was shared by the Spanish Minister of Tourism Reyes Maroto.
She said: “This will allow the UK market to open up so they can come to Spain.
“They (the British) could come from May 20 without an HBP if the incidence rates are below the range currently under review, which is around 50 cases per 100,000 people.”
Spain is currently on the UK’s ‘orange list’ which, under new rules set by Grant Shapps on Friday, will mean Britons will have to be quarantined for 10 days upon their return.
People arriving from a green location will not need to quarantine on their return and will need to take a test after arrival.
Those returning from an Amber List country must self-isolate for at least five days and pass two tests.
The Red List requires an 11 night stay in a quarantine hotel at a cost of £ 1,750 for solo travelers.
Assessments will be based on a range of factors, including the proportion of a country’s population that has been vaccinated, infection rates, emerging new variants, and the country’s access to reliable scientific data and sequencing. genomics.
