Germany has declared all of Spain undesirable for tourists

The German authorities have included the whole of Spain in the list of countries with “a wide spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus”. This was announced on Friday, July 9, by the Robert Koch Institute. Spain will officially be included in this list from July 11 — it is from this date that the German Foreign Ministry does not recommend fellow citizens to enter its territory.

Spain in general, as well as the Canary Islands and Majorca in particular, are very popular among German tourists. The changes for those who will go there now are minimal, writes the German weekly Der Spiegel. Tourists, as before, on their return to Germany, will have to present either a negative test, or a certificate of vaccination, or a certificate of the transferred COVID-19, and then they will not have to go to quarantine.

Germany considers” regions with a widespread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus " those where 100 thousand inhabitants account for more than 50 new cases of infections per week. In Spain, this figure has now risen to 179. If it is more than 200, Germany can assign Spain the status of a country with a widespread delta variant of the coronavirus.

Such countries are considered the most dangerous to visit in Germany, and for those who come from there, there are strict restrictions: entry is allowed only for German citizens and holders of a residence permit, and everyone who crossed the border is invited to spend 14 days in-home quarantine without the right to be released from it prematurely by passing a repeated PCR test. Now such rules in Germany apply to Cyprus. Previously, Russia, Portugal, and the United Kingdom were on this list, but now restrictions on entry from these countries have been relaxed again.
