Ibiza will be able to welcome tourists from June.
On Friday, Reyes Maroto, Spain’s tourism minister, promised on national television that the country will “guarantee safe transportation starting June.”
Until then, the EU’s ‘digital green certificate’ vaccine passport should be operational, an initiative supported by Spain since its inception and which will unlock tourism for its domestic market and islands, including Ibiza.
The certificate reaffirms a positive testing result for Covid-19 through a QR code, which Ms Maroto said will enable our country to progressively reopen safely.
According to Maroto, Spain is currently working with its main tourism markets – which includes the UK – to relaunch safe international tourism.
It’s also reported that the country will launch a PR campaign to show “the country’s attributes and the trust that can be placed in Spain as a safe travel destination.”
Maroto also placed emphasis on Spain’s vaccine programme, saying that “the most important thing is to build trust, and this trust is gained by fighting the pandemic and by vaccinating, vaccinating and vaccinating.”
