Moscow. 22nd of May. INTERFAX.RU – Spain has announced that it will officially lift restrictions on British and Japanese travelers from Monday, BBC News reports.

The government says the UK and Japan will be on the list of countries whose residents will be able to avoid travel restrictions in the EU. However, British tourists heading to Spain will still have to undergo quarantine upon return.

The UK government, for its part, strongly recommends refraining from nonessential travel to most other EU countries, including Spain. According to the UK's “traffic light system”, people are advised to avoid the “yellow” and “red” countries where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is higher.

Tourism in Portugal and Spain relies heavily on British summer tourists. Travelers from England, Scotland and Wales began flying to Portugal last Monday. Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez added that lifting these restrictions should allow Spain's summer tourism to reach 30-40% of the 2019 level.
