Spain will lift restrictions on the entry of people across the borders with Portugal and Spain from June 22, announced the Spanish Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto today.

"In the case of France and Portugal, I want to confirm that as of 22 June, restricitions on land mobility will be eliminated," said the minister, in a meeting with the international press, adding that "in principle, the quarantines will be eliminated".

The Spanish Government thus anticipates the date of opening the borders by one week, after having announced on 25 May that it would lift restrictions on the movement of people, namely foreign tourists, only on 1 July.

Spanish authorities closed the borders in mid-March, with the entry into force of the state of emergency, except for residents, cross-border workers and truck drivers, in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.


Comments:

Just heard Spanish government have changed their minds and border will now open 1st July. Complete incompetence and shambles. Will only lead to mass confusion.
