Spain Tourism officials are hopeful that the country will have the proper procedures in place to welcome back travellers from all over the world by this summer.
Spanish Tourism department will be ready to tell all travellers that they can visit the Money Heist country with certainty.
The country’s Secretary of State of Tourism, Fernando Valdes, said during a panel discussion at the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Global Summit in Cancun, Mexico this week.
Due to COVID-19 Spanish travel restrictions, U.S. citizens cannot enter Spain unless they meet very specific supplies or have already obtained special authorization from the Government of Spain, says Spain Tourism.
So in order to know your status in case you have plans to travel where the heist happened, check the Spain Tourism regulations prudently before attempting to travel. U.S. Embassy & Consulate in Spain and Andorra have also mentioned that.
However, Spain Tourism says that if you travel to Spain and then you don’t get admitted, you will be placed in immigration detention for up to several days, pending a flight on the same airline becomes available to take you back to where you came from. No need to panic.
If you decide to postpone your travel plans, Spain will be ready in June for all travellers worldwide. Then you can visit us with certainty says Fernando Valdes Verelst, the Secretary of State of Spain Tourism.
Earlier this month, European Union members agreed to move forward with a green digital passport to ease safe travel throughout the continent for this summer. The temporary measure would use a QR code to inform the proper authorities about a traveller’s health status, including whether they’ve received an approved COVID-19 vaccine, fully recovered from the virus or tested negative within an acceptable timeframe.
