No UK-Spain travel corridor.

No UK-Spain travel corridor.

01-03-2019Jon Nazca/Reuters

Spain is not discussing any travel corridor with Britain, a Spanish foreign ministry source told Reuters after a UK tourism lobby group said corridors allowing unrestricted movement with a number of countries would open from June 29.

Spain is discussing with other European Union countries whether and how to allow tourism from Britain and other states, the source said.

Madrid hopes the EU will agree on common criteria over the coronavirus situation in order to allow tourists to travel, but will adopt its own criteria if there is no agreement at EU level, the source said.

The UK has acted like a third world country over Covid. It locked down too late, the lockdown was half hearted with no punitive fines to act as a deterrent. Hardly any police on the beat to enforce. It is no wonder the UK is still not under control and Europe's outstanding poster child for how not to deal with it. Spain had locked down earler, proper confinement, huge fines, police everywhere and even the army early on. Spain deserves its day in the sun now and the right to choose not to have people from virus ridden countries visit them. I wouldn't let the UK in until at least September. They don't deserve it.

Should have been with you from 16th but a wise move to prevent U.K. visitors.Now the U.K. government does nothing to prevent mass gatherings of thousands of people with no social distancing a rise in CV cases will no doubt follow. We are so far behind Spain why should you suffer by allowing us to visit. Unlike Spain our leadership ,be it politicians or scientists has been abysmal! Stay safe.

Hey Fred, I think you will find it is the other way around. You are not allowed in till WE decide it is safe to have brits coming here. I have no idea why you think the UK ia safer than Mallorca. News flash: it is not! I certainly don't want a bunch of unsafe brits roaming the Balearics.

How confusing is this article? They’re not talking with Britain, but are talking about Britain? Is that what you’re saying?
