This could have serious consequences on the tourist industry in the Costa del Sol and across all the popular regions of the country.
People arriving into Spain from abroad will have to self isolate for 2 weeks from May 15th. That’s the new measure announced in the official state bulletin this morning. The measure applies to any traveller coming from a country outside of Spain and will stay in effect until the end of the current state of alarm.
The measures applies to all travellers, including Spanish citizens returning to the country. Only truck drivers, airplane and ship crews, cross-border workers and health staff who are entering Spain to work are exempt from the quarantine. The government had imposed restrictions on travelling from outside the open-border Shengen Area which includes most of the European Union countries and other European states such as Norway.
