Coronavirus: Spain reopened borders on June 21

Spain opened its borders on June 21 for passengers arriving from the EU countries, the Schengen zone, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

All passengers entering the country will have their temperature measured and will have to leave their contact details upon arrival.

The opening of the borders comes after a state of emergency has been in place in Spain for three months. Currently, the country requires everyone to wear a face mask where it is not possible to maintain physical distance.

Since the outbreak, more than 245,000 cases have been recorded in the country, and 28,000 people have died. 

80 million tourists come to Spain every year, and tourism accounts for 12 percent of annual GDP. The opening of borders is the key to economic recovery.
