Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that foreign tourists will be allowed to enter the country starting in July.
It came as welcome news for his country’s battered tourism industry which makes up 12 per cent of Spain’s GDP.
“Foreign tourists can therefore now plan their holidays,” Sanchez said.

UPDATE June 1, 2020
While we still have 1 month to go to whether or not we can travel to Spain from 1 July, we have now entered Phase 2 with our work area, (Costa Blanca North) and the entire autonomous region of Valencia.
It still applies that people are not allowed to leave their own province and autonomous region and travel freely throughout Spain.
This will apply up to and including the last Phase 3, and only then will a final decision on foreigner entry be made.
UPDATE May 25, 2020
Although a statement has finally been made about opening the Spanish borders, this is not yet certain.
It depends on the de-escalation phases still to be completed that apply.
For example, our work area, (Costa Blanca North) is currently still in phase 1 (while we were planned to enter phase 2 as of today) and we still have to go through phases 2 and 3 before there is definitive free access for foreigners.
