Spain has been under strict lockdown since March 14th and it is impossible to travel to the country. It is expected to extend the lockdown until 25th June 2020, if everything goes as expected.
Spanish Government has divided the lockdown restrictions in four phases (cero, one, two and three phase). Changing from one phase to the other will depend on the good results of the previous phase. So, the lifting lockdown will vary from Spanish regions depending on the scale of infections in that zone.
Situation in United Kingdom is not even better. At the time of writing this post, United Kingdom is the second country with highest Covid-19 death toll, behind United Estates of America.
When will Spain return to normality?
We cannot predict when Spain will reach the normality, as we cannot know when the rest of countries will be free from the virus and safe. Any government can determine when land borders would be reopened as it is a worldwide health crisis.
The current ban on travelling from outside Europe’s Schengen area will remain in place until the European Union as a whole makes a decision to lift it. It’s not yet known how long this ban will remain in place but Ursula von der Leyen, European Commission President, has warned people not to book summer holidays.
There are voices that do not expect to come to “the new normality” until Christmas, and Emmanuel Macron, French President, suggested it could be not before September.
Spanish tourism sector is pessimistic about summer season, and they agree that the summer season will be lost this year. Tourist sector does not expect to come to normality until 12 months after lockdown is finished.
