The Netherlands is lifting its travel restrictions for Spain as of today and will no longer be advising people not to come to the Balearic Islands.

The change is due to the Balearic Islands and the rest of Spain moving from ‘Amber’ to ‘Yellow’.

The Balearics and the Canary Islands were ‘Amber’ listed on July 15 after Covid infections soared and a raft of Dutch tourists cancelled their holiday reservations.
