Spain is working on starting to gradually open up to tourists from countries considered more secure in the fight against COVID-19 from June 22, a tourism ministry spokesman said on Wednesday, APA reports citing Reuters.

Madrid has previously set July 1 as the date to reopen its borders to tourism, which accounts for some 12% of the country’s economy, after a months-long shutdown due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus which causes COVID-19.

Separately Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya tweeted that Germany would lift a recommendation to its nationals to avoid travelling to Spain as soon as Spain lifts restrictions on travel from abroad.
