Spain will reopen to foreign tourists from July, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has announced.
He did not give a specific date or details of any measures that might be put in place. Mr Sánchez also announced that football matches in La Liga could resume in the week of 8 June.
“I am announcing to you that from the month of July, entry for foreign tourists into Spain will resume in secure conditions,” he told reporters.
The government outlined a four-stage plan on 4 May to start easing the country’s strict lockdown.
The number of infections and deaths has been steadily falling but on Wednesday Mr Sánchez won parliamentary backing to extend the state of emergency by another two weeks to 6 June. It was the fifth time Spain’s “state of alarm” has been renewed.
