Travel to Spain.

Britain and Spain are at odds over the so-called vaccine passport which should have made it easier to travel to the Balearics and the rest of Spain. Despite press speculation including an article in The Times last week which suggested that Britain was preparing to introduce the passport, a British minister has poured cold water over the suggestion.

Spain is pushing the European Union for the introduction of the passport. Spain has said it would make travel to Spain easier.

But British vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawissaid over the weekend there were several reasons why vaccine passports would not be introduced, not least because the vaccine was not mandatory in the UK.

"That's not how we do things. We do them by consent," he said.

Zahawi said vaccine passports would be "discriminatory" and it wasn't clear what impact they would have on transmission of the virus.

He said people could talk to their doctor if they needed written evidence to travel.

"Of course you have the evidence that you have been vaccinated held by your GP and if other countries require you to show proof of that evidence then that is up to those countries," he said.

As there is ZERO non biased scientific proof the vaccine stops people carrying &/or transmitting the virus, whats the point ?? Surely, if it actually hides the symptoms then vaccinated people could be unidentifiable carriers !

HOLD ON! Wasn’t Bill Gates supposed to be hiding nanobots in the vaccine? If so then surely a quick scan could reveal a tracer nanobot in your system confirming you’ve been vaccinated. Simples. ;)

If people are forced to acquire vaccine passports & do quarantine upon their return I'm sad to say but the tourist industry in Spain will be pretty much dead. If there's little or no activity in the tourism sector this summer then it will take years to return if at all. Sad times for those who's livelihood depends on tourism and for those wanting a much needed break.

Passport huh, sounds more like a means by which the governments can generate income for itself. You don't honestly think that ERTE etc fell off a free money tree...or do you. You think covid is bad just you wait for the full hit it has had on the economy.

Brits will be able to produce a vaccination certificate in the same way as any other vaccine required for travel. Spain will decide whether this is adequate or whether to ban British tourists indefinitely along with the economic consequences. Its not the British government's concern to be fair.
