German passengers arriving in Palma are not subject to Spain's quarantine, which will be lifted from 21 June.

15-06-2020

On Sunday, when Pedro Sánchez announced the lifting of Spain's borders from 21 June, there was no mention of the UK. On Monday, the Spanish government confirmed that the UK was included on the list of countries, implying that there would be no need for UK travellers to quarantine on arrival; Spain will be lifting its foreign traveller quarantine requirement from 21 June.

The foreign affairs minister, Arancha González Laya, has now said that a 14-day quarantine could be imposed. Speaking to the BBC, the minister indicated that the Spanish government is looking at whether there should be "reciprocity", given that the UK has its own measures, in other words its own 14-day quarantine of travellers entering the UK.

She added that there will be "dialogue" with the UK regarding such reciprocity, pointed to the situation being "fluid", and hoped that the UK may have moved forward by the time that Spain opens its borders.

I ain’t coming to Majorca this year because 1. O’Leary still owes me a truck load of money for cancelled flights... 2. Anti Tourism in recent years... 3. Mainland Spain is more inviting, less expensive and easier public transport... 4. Majorca used to see me 3-4 times a year... in future, it maybe, just maybe, once a year

This is hardly surprising.

Perhaps the UK will get its act together and actually do something about the long awaited ‘air bridges’.

Yet more confusion and lack of information in the UK. Of course European nations will reciprocate.

I’m not holding my breath ...

If this measure is "reciprocity", that is somewhat childish. For me the fact that the UK is still very much a risk country, is a much more important issue. I say ban the British (or americans or brasileans) till 1st July at least and or when the UK themselves think it is ok to lift quarantine measures. It is not about you do this, so I do that, but about the safety of all people, from whatever country they are for.
