There is hope after all for Summer 2020 after the recent announcement from Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, who stated that Spain plans to reopen its boarders for the first time in July since the COVID-19 outbreak.

Sánchez has assured that the safety of tourists will be insured, while encouraging foreigners to begin their holiday plans to Spain, explaining that the country:

"Needs tourism, and tourism needs safety in both origin and destination. We will guarantee that tourists will not run any risks, nor will they bring any risk to our country.”

Britain is one of Spain's main attractors, with 18 million British tourists visiting the country in 2019.

One of the main Spanish hot spots for British partygoers and the electronic music scene is the Balearic Island of Ibiza - with its venues and nightclubs now beginning to prepare for the reopening of their doors for the first time in months.

However, according to The Independent, it is mandatory that tourists prove that they do not have the coronavirus before they can enter Ibiza.

Visitors will require a 'COVID-19 free certificate' as an attempt to prevent another spike of the virus.

Spain has been one of the worst hit countries since the virus arrived in Europe, killing 27,119 people and deteriorating their economy with hundreds of thousands losing their jobs.
