Spain wants British tourist as soon as possible.

Spain is pushing the European Union and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development for the creation of a COVID-19 vaccine certification that would ease travel, Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez said this morning.

"Vaccine certification is something we are going towards inevitably," Gonzalez told RNE radio station.

"It will be a very important element to guarantee a safe return to mobility."
The issuance of such a document though should be coordinated at the European or even global level, she said, adding that a vaccine certificate would allow people to travel, like PCR tests do now.

Spain, which depends heavily on the tourism industry, is one of the countries that suffered the most from the restrictions to travel related to the pandemic.

In response to Mel, you do understand, don’t you, that people over 65 can be elderly and healthy? We are not all ready to drop like flies and die, we have lives to lead and can teach those younger than us the importance of social distancing to protect people in place of clubbing, drinking and spreading!

This should only be for sick and over 65. You should be able to get a health certificate to state you are young and healthy and everyone should be able to travel. As all the vaccine does is stop you getting a bad case of Covid. It still doesn’t stop you contracting or passing it on or even dying. Please use common sense to allow everyone freedom to travel

Spain needs to get its own population vaccinated first and stop worrying about other travelers vaccine passes. Confidence of a safe as far as practical and relative normal holidays experience will be required before 2021 season can be rescued.I will be first on the plane when that is the case along with many Brits. Read today that the eu has stopped Ireland from buying the Astra vaccine despite lack of their own supples own goal will cost lives and delay recovery.you could not make it up if you tried.
