It’s looking more likely that Brits will be allowed to Ibiza by June

Balearic Tourism Minister Rosa Ana Morilla Rodriguez has said that she feels “very optimistic” that Ibiza, Menorca, Formentera and Mallorca will be open to Brits by June, Mixmag reports.

The hope is that Spain (and the Balearics) will move onto the ‘green’ list of countries – meaning that travellers will only be required to take a Covid test before departure and then back on arrival in the UK. More importantly, there’ll be no need to quarantine for 10 days when arriving back home.

Ms Morilla Rodriguez, speaking to The Telegraph, said “we have the right numbers, we have the right measures in place that will allow us to be considered ‘green’”.

In order to get onto the green list, a number of factors are taken in to account – such as the number of people who have been vaccinated, infection rates, and other scientific data. The different lists are reviewed every three weeks in order to make additions or to move countries into different categories such as red or amber, which require higher levels of quarantining and testing.

Currently, Spain has been added to the amber list – meaning that a pre-departure test must be taken, and tourists must quarantine for 10 days when they return to England or Wales. PCR tests will also have to be taken on day two and eight of quarantine.

The Balearics have recorded low numbers of infection recently, with 49 cases reported on Saturday by the Mallorca Daily Bulletin, with one death recorded also.

Hopes are high for British tourists, who are looking to get back to Spanish nightlife and sunny weather as soon as possible – as restrictions on travel ease on May 17 after months of lockdown.
