Coronavirus has taken over the world, with a shocking 10,488 lives claimed by the deadly disease in total. UK residents have been advised to work from home and avoid all but essential international travel. It’s pretty clear that if we shouldn’t be going to the pub, we shouldn’t be getting off to a villa in Spain. The country is facing almost 20,000 cases and has lost over 1,000 Spaniards to the virus. If you’ve already booked a trip to Spain, you’re probably confused about what to do. When can we fly to Spain again?
Is it safe to go on holiday to Spain?
The Exceptional Travel Advisory Notice from the FCO says: “the FCO advises British nationals against all but essential international travel.”
On top of this, Spain declared a State of Emergency (Estado de Alarma) on Saturday March 14- the entire country is in lockdown.
British travellers who are currently in Spain have been ordered to fly home as soon as possible and all hotels have been closed.
All Spaniards are to stay home and are only allowed to leave in order to buy the essentials, go to the chemist or hospital, or to go to work if they need to.
