Minister of Health Carolina Darias said Spain is a safe destination and is in a position to soon regain their world tourism leadership.

She went on to say that opening the borders to those who are protected against Covid-19 will bring the country closer to normality over the summer.

Non-essential travellers from Brazil, India and South Africa, where there are strong variants of concern, are still not allowed enter the country.

The Spanish government is hoping to have between 14.5 million and 15.5 million tourists to the country between July and September.

That is roughly 40% of tourists in the same period in 2019.

Tourism is crucial to the Spanish economy, accounting for over 10% of its annual GDP.
