Here you will find the latest travel advice from Spain, Italy, France, Greece and Portugal.
Spain will lift its 14-day quarantine rule for tourists on July 1, but Britons will only be allowed into the country if COVID-19 is at an “acceptable” level in the UK.
The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, has made it clear that “tourists will not take any risk nor will they bring any risk to our country.”
Authorities are currently working on how to decide who will be allowed to enter Spain and how to avoid importing a second wave of coronavirus.
Strict social distancing measures will also be implemented in hotels, beaches and restaurants.
Greece will begin welcoming tourists from July 1, but Britons will be banned from doing so.
Initially, the Greek government will only accept tourists from a certain list of countries that have a low level of COVID-19.
The UK has the fifth highest number of coronavirus cases and the second highest number of deaths in the world, so it is not on the list.
On June 3, Italy will reopen its borders to tourists from the EU, the United Kingdom, Andorra, Monaco, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, San Marino and Vatican City.
Quarantine will not be required unless tourists have been in a non-approved country (such as the US) in the 14 days prior to arriving in Italy.
Portugal will reopen its borders to tourists on June 15.
Portugal and the UK are reportedly currently in talks to form an “air bridge”, which would allow tourists to travel to Portugal without having to quarantine upon their return home.
Beaches, parks, restaurants and bars will gradually open from June 1, with French people expected to be able to holiday in France (including its overseas territories) in July and August.
There is currently no date for when France will welcome non-essential travelers from the UK or other European countries.
There are currently flights operating between France and the UK for essential travel only.
The FCO currently advises against all travel except abroad, and you should not go on holiday until this changes.
