SPAIN will allow Brits to travel to the country without the need to quarantine there, the nation's foreign minister has said.
Anyone returning to the UK would still need to quarantine for 14 days under the Government plans for nearly all new arrivals in an effort to prevent new coronavirus cases arriving from abroad.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is under considerable pressure from within his own party to form so-called air bridges with nations that have Covid-19 under control to exempt them from the quarantine, which the travel industry wants scrapped.
Spain will allow the entry of visitors from the European Union from Sunday when it ends its state of emergency, and Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said this would apply to British citizens too.
"We will allow British visitors to enter Spain just like the rest of the European Union as from June 21 freely and without the need for a quarantine," she told BBC News.
