The Foreign Office has officially changed its travel advice for UK travellers looking to visit Spain.
The travel ban was officially lifted shortly after the Government announced people in England could visit Spain without having to quarantine when they got back.
Now the advice from the Foreign Office has been updated as well.
It states: “From 4 July, Spain is exempt from the FCO advice against all non-essential international travel. This is based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.”
The FCO warns that Brits arriving in Spain will be subject to three requirements.
They must provide contact information and history of any COVID-19 exposure, they must undergo a temperature check, and they must undergo a visual health assessment.
The change is good news for sun-starved Brits hankering after a holiday abroad following months of lockdown.
But any hopeful holidaymakers should expect a ‘new normal’ when it comes to travel.
Government guidance suggests that travellers check in all their luggage to help stop the spread of virus on luggage.
And people will be required to wear masks in the airport and on the plane.
Some airlines will not be selling food, whilst others will only offer a limited menu of pre-packaged items.
Travellers are likely to face temperature checks before boarding and may be asked to fill out health questionnaires.
Anyone jetting abroad should make sure their travel insurance will cover them if there is an outbreak overseas.
The change has been welcomed by the travel industry who warned that quarantine measures were further damaging businesses.
Airlines and hospitality firms have lost millions of pounds this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Travel virtually halted in mid-March as countries closed their borders and citizens were ordered to stay home.
But now travel is gearing up with many international flights scheduled to depart from the beginning of July.
