Spain Is a Safe Tourist Destination, Spanish Tourism Minister Claims

Spain Is a Safe Tourist Destination, Spanish Tourism Minister Claims -  SchengenVisaInfo.com


The Tourism Minister of Spain Reyes Maroto has said that Spain remains a safe country for tourists to visit regardless of the restrictions that have been imposed in popular parts of the country to halt the further increase in COVID-19 infection cases.


Through a conference held after the cabinet’s weekly meeting, the Minister said that “Spain at this time can be considered a safe destination,” SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.


Such a statement was given not long after the Spanish officials announced that they plan to impose a limit of ten persons at social gatherings as well as temporarily terminate all non-essential activity right after midnight, at 12:30 am.


As the Delta variant continues to spread rapidly and mainly affecting young unvaccinated persons, Barcelona, as well as northeastern parts of the country, are shutting down once again in order to halt the further spread of the variant.


As such, Catalonia has been reported to be one of the most hard-hit areas by the COVID-19, and its variants after the region identified more than 1000 infection cases per 100,000 inhabitants only during a 14-day period.


Not long ago, former Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs Arancha González Laya spoke against the concerns of French diplomats regarding vacations in Spanish tourist destinations, as France’s Secretary of State or European Affairs, Clément Beaune, warned citizens to avoid travelling to Spain and Portugal.

With other regions also imposing local restrictions to keep the spread of the Delta variant under control, several European Union Member States have suggested that Spain is not a safe destination for holidaymakers.


Previously, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported that several EU countries had imposed strict entry rules against arrivals from Spain as the latter has reported high Coronavirus infection numbers and is keeping borders open for arrivals from the UK. As a result, unvaccinated Spanish travellers can only enter Denmark for essential purposes.


Similarly, the German authorities have announced that all persons entering the country from Spain are required to present proof of vaccination, a negative test result, or recent proof of recovery from the virus. Estonia has also imposed a quarantine requirement against all arrivals from Spain.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO) figures, until now, the country has identified 4,015,084 infection cases and has registered 81,033 deaths.

As of July 15, Spain has administered more than 48,911,460 vaccine doses against the COVID-19, meaning that around 60.5 per cent of the population have received at least one dose of the vaccine, whereas 47.8 per cent have been fully immunised.
